Please make a vow to revisit this beautiful and remarkable city as soon as the airport and a hotel is up and ready for business!!!
I'm sure there are tons of people, (certainly NOT foodies) who will think 'well, I went there for Mardi Gras, but I'm not going back THERE again!!!'
Give to the Red Cross, then start saving your pennies to throw at any and every business that will take them as soon as they open the doors. Support this amazing place! We need to bring it back from this horrible state!
