Last chance to stop the cold storage plant

This email was passed along to members of the Stop Cold Storage in the Quarter/Marigny/Bywater! group on Facebook.

After Tuesday night’s BNA meeting where State Rep. Jared Brossitt announced that the Port was actively seeking a new location for NOCS and after thunderous applause I think it would be a good idea to contact your politicians one last time to ask that they consider changing the placement of the proposed NOCS facility in the French Quarter.

As you do or do not know the opposition continues to grow with ALL river front neighborhood organizations opposed including; FMIA, BNA, NOCCA, VCPORA and now FQC, (French Quarter Citizens)

Citizens will have one last chance to stop the proposed cold storage facility at the Governor Nichols Wharf at the foot of Elsplanade.  For more information about the issue and contact information for politicians see the Foubourg Marigny Improvement Association’s website

25th annual Irish Parade on Lower Decatur

The Times-Piccayune published this to say about the St. Patrick’s Day parade.

St. Patrick’s Day parades begin rolling Friday when Monaghan’s 25th annual Irish Parade paints the French Quarter green at 5:30 p.m., beginning and ending at Molly’s at the Market, 1107 Decatur Street. Beads and Irish-themed trinkets will be tossed to the crowds by riders in horse-driven carriages, led by the Storyville Stompers marching band and the Kazoozie Floozies.

Be sure to wear green and come get your Blarney on!
