Morgan's Note

Even through we’re just beginning to recover from Carnvial, as you can see, March is a very busy month for nonprofit events! Please look carefully at our calendar and attend everything that you can, because each of these fundraisers support essential pieces of what makes our city amazing.

On that note, please pay special attention to the “UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball” listing. In January’s “Registry of Charitable Events: January-April 2017,” we listed the phone contact for this event incorrectly, and want to make certain that any of you who want to attend are able to reach them! As it is to the right, the correct number is 581-3794.

Along with the beautiful weather spring brings, it also instills in us a want to clean, reorganize and revitalize our homes. From the perfect Mongolian lamb ottoman, which you can find in “What’s Hot for Home Décor,” to an eco-luxury throw by In2Green at JADE Interiors + Design, which you can learn more about in our “Spring Greening” feature, find great ideas, items and the perfect finishing touches throughout this issue.

If you loved last month’s “From King Cake to Crawfish: 10 spring restaurant specials” feature, we want to make certain that you ask for Bourbon House’s chef Cook by the correct first name: Eric (not Erin as it appeared in the caption).

Prepare yourselves for our next issue: April 2017 St. Charles Avenue magazine’s Courts of Carnival will be more than double the size of last year’s, to make certain you don’t miss a single Queen, King, Maid, Page or smiling face!
