What you'll do

We will share a 3 course meal in a locally owned, neighborhood restaurant, Joey K's. Enjoy a curated menu chosen to highlight your experience of eating local fare, in an intimate setting, and off the beaten tourist path. The discussion over lunch covers any area of the city, guided by your specific interests, including the French Quarter, Treme', Marigny and Bywater, the Lakefront, 9th Ward, University District, Arts District, and more. We'll also visit Still Perking, a local coffee joint housed in a building constructed for the Cotton Exposition in 1884. Following, we can stroll through the Garden District which dates back to the 1800's. We'll talk about why this area was developed and why it is now inhabited mainly by celebrities and locals of high social standing. We will end our journey with a tour of Lafayette Cemetery to talk how our City celebrates life even in death through buriel practices. Our meal, the Garden District stroll, and cemetery tour will tie together the native Indian, French, Spanish, German, Irish, Jewish and others as a mosaic of cultures upon which the city was founded and has grown into its unique identity amongst the great cities of the world.
