NEW ORLEANS ENTREPRENEUR WEEK

Oh well it’s over now but it was a great event, I learned #pricelessinformation formed #pricelessrelationships and socialized over cocktails & music as a #neworleanian shld with all that said, it was a #priceless event #greatjob #NOEW #ideavillage #square #ge my only complaint was the food as well as the nontraditional wait staff, they had on the all black but the servers who did not have that New Orleans tourism background stood out like a sore thumb. There were a few staff with the proper button down or polo shirt with a logo.. I’m sorry but moving away and coming home I appreciate some of our traditional Nola qualities & being on the other end of the spectrum I want not only to see it but experience it as if I was a tourist as well. #review #foodreview

The event is held for the people of New Orleans right?? #NewOrleanians #NolaLocals I wld suggest that those in charge of menu planning next time stick with traditional #NewOrleans #foods #meals #catering mushroom whatever bread pudding has no business in #Nola I heard so many ppl wondering why & the bread cld hv been for #PoBoys or actual #breadpudding
grabbing toothpick poked cut of a po boy is fast, less food prep, cooking & etc. What happened to the fried catfish or baked trout/salmon?? I love tuna tartare smoked salmon but really? scooping out some delicious jambalaya, wld hv prevented the line as well as the waste of the cooks time, our time and waste of money. I wonder if anyone paid any attention to the food left on plates or in the trash.. It felt as if the menu was planned for the people who moved to New Orleans, the transplants and not the locals. Other than that I had a ballOh well it’s over now but it was a great event, I learned #pricelessinformation formed #pricelessrelationships and socialized over cocktails & music as a #neworleanian shld with all that said, it was a #priceless event #greatjob #NOEW #ideavillage #square #ge my only complaint was the food as well as the nontraditional wait staff, they had on the all black but the servers who did not have that New Orleans tourism background stood out like a sore thumb.

Native of New Orleans, who endured 20yrs cruel Minnesota Cold, I decided at 42yrs old it was time to pack up my then 6yr old and come back to my roots. I am all things that would challenge the belief of growing up in New Orleans. I was a 16yr old teen mother of a preterm 2lb baby girl born with a disability. With the help of my mother who had her own struggles. We survived the obstacles laid before us. I'm the proud mother of three children with two failed adoptions, as well as a grandmother of three, two grandsons and a granddaughter. I survived two abusive marriages. I successfully ran a soulfood restaurant and catering company in Minnesota for 12 years. I started creating custom cakes after the murder of my beloved cousin Melvin Paul.  He survived Katrina only to go to Minneapolis six months later to be murdered over a parking spot dispute.  I put my all into my cake business over the years as House of Cakes was started right out of my house in honor of him. I thought by having the big house on the hill, a husband, having a family, foster/adoptive mother at that, being involved in all things that matter, plus having the funds to match would cure me in a sense; but most of it poisoned my heart and soul. I had a broken heart and I felt deep down the only way to repair it was to get back to my roots, my soul, my home,  myself, my New Orleans. I'm here and I'm loving it. Even being in the so called Blighted Area of New Orleans and not having all the financial and material security, I'm happy. I am determined that She, yes New Orleans is a woman is just like me; together we will overcome and will rise from all that tried to kill our spirit. Nothing like starting from the bottom and making your way back up! I'm down in the boot, but I know I have a nice floppy hat awaiting my destiny...
