I’m certain that if you are living on this planet we call Earth you already know that the Superbowl is this Sunday in the Big Easy. New Orleans is bustling at this time of year and with the impending Superbowl, the City is on steroids.
I love the this picture.
It is really exciting to see which stars are in town and witness the fervor that CBS has gone through to set up such glorious stages in and near Jackson Square. I adore how the stages use the ironwork that is similarly used throughout the Quarter. Keeping it NOLA! The stages are being used for a number of broadcasts by CBS.
I have been DVRing The Talk which is LIVE from Jackson Square each day this week. I enjoyed WWLs own Angela Hill on Tuesday. She is a true legend here in NOLA. Angela presented each of the hosts gifts we treasure so much at Mardi Gras--- Muses shoes, Barkus sceptor, Zulu coconut, kingcake earrings, crown.
I am also looking forward to Thursday’s LIVE show where Drew Brees will sit in as a co-host with the ladies.
The shows have been entertaining.
I have also been watching WWL’s Entertainment Show, New Orleans Tonight with WWL’s traffic girl, Sheba Turk, Meteorologist Laura Buchtel, and Tamica Lee (not sure who see is). They are live at 6:30 PM Central time nightly bringing local stories as well as Superbowl insights. It too is fun and entertaining.
I am not sure if J & I will get down there this weekend or not. I know parking will be a nightmare for sure. We have to hop on the streetcar.
If you are like me, I am not really rooting for any team in particular. I prefer to watch the halftime show. Beyonce will be stellar--- that I know! I definitely prefer the entertainment over the game.
This City is on fire. What other City could host a Superbowl smack dab in the middle of two weeks of Mardi Gras parades? Hmmmmm? Well, New Orleans can and will!
Will you be watching?
A SUPERbowl in NOLA, y’all!
