New(ish) to NOLA Dinner
Moving to New Orleans was scary, to say the least. I had SO many questions and so few connections. Everything I had known was up for decision in my new locale: neighborhoods, pediatricians, parks, gynecologists, friends and schools. New Orleans is uniquely wonderful, but it is also uniquely different, which means you have to learn the culture, the roads (don’t drive fast in Lakeview neighborhoods, beware the potholes), learn the norms (private school anyone?), and find the festivals (yes Mardi Gras IS for families).
When you are suddenly on your own in a sea of new experiences and people, you remember simple kindnesses and conversations. Conversations at the park, those that tutored you on the NOLA culture, those willing to share their favorite restaurant recommendations and guide you on local preschools – all of those conversations were SO helpful in adjusting to this city.
One of our sister sites Burlington Moms Blog recently hosted a “Welcome to Burlington” dinner, and for all of the above reasons, we were inspired. We decided to team up with the Hard Rock Cafe New Orleans to host a New(ish) to NOLA dinner for some of our readers that are new (or somewhat new … we are not being specific here!) to the city of New Orleans. If you would like to join our team for dinner and drinks, we would love to have you! We would love to know what your questions about NOLA are, and we would really enjoy sharing our experiences with you.
