The New Orleans Daiquiri Festival has been postponed until next Saturday (Aug. 24).
The event was supposed to be held today from noon to 9 p.m. but the organizers posted on their Facebook page that a permitting snafu delayed the event.
Celebrate your new New Orleans home with a frozen daiquiri tomorrow (Saturday, Aug. 17) in the Marigny.
The 3rd Annual New Orleans Daiquiri Festival is from noon to 9 p.m. at the Michalopoulos Studio, 527 Elysian Fields Avenue at Chartres (map).
The event focuses on frozen daiquiris and will have at least six different varieties for sale. Plus, the fest has music and food.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door.
Have you fallen in love with the local art in New Orleans yet? We have. We’re always prowling for original pieces and yes, we stop and look at the art on the fence at Jackson Square. The art markets, like Frenchmen Art Market, also are good options (more art markets).

Info from the market’s site:
Frenchmen Art Market is New Orleans’ only weekly night-time art market
We feature local and regional artists who create 100% handmade art and goods.
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)
