One of the goals of New Orleans Moms Blog is to connect moms in and around the New Orleans area with each other in person. Many of you attended our Easter Egg Hunt in March, and we’ve received several requests for more events. We realize that our readers have varying schedules, with some moms working outside of the home and some staying home full-time. We also know that our readers have children at all different stages of life. And, we know that sometimes you want to get away without the kids. We have two events coming up that we hope you’ll join us for, but if neither of these works out, please stay tuned; we are trying to plan something for everyone! And, if you have ideas for events, please feel free to share in a comment!
SnoDat Snowballs on the Lake
When: Friday, May 17 from 10:00am to 12:00pm
Where: Bonnabel Playground (1599 Bonnabel in Metairie)
Why: Come grab a free snowball from SnoDat Snowballs, meet other moms and let the kids run free!
What to expect: A few team members will be in attendance, and this will be low key and casual. Bring a picnic, snacks or just yourselves; this is casual outdoor fun!
Who: Any moms (or caretakers) looking to meet other moms in the area!
RSVP: Let us know you’re coming (no cost to join!)
Moms Night Out with Dishcrawl
When: Tuesday, June 4
Where: We’ll start with wine and cheese at Feet First (restaurant locations remain a surprise until the event!)
Why: Leave the children at home and put on your most comfortable heels (we’ll be walking!) for a fun night out! Connect with other moms in the New Orleans area while enjoying the tastes, sights and sounds of Magazine Street. At each stop, you’ll be treated to food and great conversation. And who knows? We might have a few gifts and giveaways for you along the way!
What to expect: At each of the restaurants (which are a surprise until the event – that’s half the fun!), you’ll get a taste of food AND the chance to win a giveaway (such as a set of hand towels and soap from Loomed NOLA, a family session from Christie Froom Photography, $35 to blo magazine or lunch for two at Tartine). All moms who attend the Dishcrawl will receive swag bags including (but certainly not limited to): 25% off to Loomed NOLA, 20% off to Buff Beauty Bar, a sample of ICONIC, a free class pass to barre3, 15% off to Bella & Harlow, a free key fob with any purchase over $65 at NOLA Couture, 20% off to Fried Green Design, a set of measuring spoons from Crescent City Farmers Market, and sample product and $5 off a blo at blo magazine.
