Champagne Stroll on Magazine


Now we sip Champagne when we thirsty. Our favorite pastime, drinking champagne as we stroll Magazine street is upon us. Where else in the world can you drink freely on the street without being harassed? Only in New Orleans, baby! Enjoy your stroll, let them know we sent you, but in the words of my mama, “Don’t you embarrass me!”
