I hope they stay on that target. I'll be in town at the end of October beginning of November for Halloween.

I'm completely bummed (no pun intended). I'm heading to NOLA for my 40th Birthday on September 18 and I'm staying right around the corner..but alas...not to be.

I just called the hotel and spoke to the receptionist. (Receptionists know everything, right?) She told me they have no idea when Latitude 29 is going to open.

I also checked room availability in the hotel for the first three Fri/Sat weekends in October and they're all booked up. So if there is an early October opening, then we probably won't be able to stay in the headquarters hotel.

The Bienville House website says Latitude 29 is "Opening in late October 2014".

Sweet, it looks like a road trip is in order... Have to pass Houston too, so might as well hit up the Lei Low too.

Although I can't give you a sneak peek of the large map I made for the bar, I can show you the mug we are making Mr and Mrs Bum and Latitude 29!

Wow. Nicest modern mug I've seen in a long while. Suitable for the Bum himself! Brilliant job sir.
