Pix from #NewinNOLA meet-up & eat-up

We had a wonderful, last-minute lunch meet-up with our New in NOLA friends Sunday.

We ate our way through the St. Claude food truck rally in the Marigny (more info). Thanks to everyone who came! Hope you can join us next time.

Sunday's food truck rally had one long table for everyone to eat together. Good way to meet new people. (photo by Carlie Kollath Wells/New in NOLA)
