Monument Tributo a los Trabajadores Latinoamericanos by Franco Alessandrini. What an amazing recognition to the contribution of the work of Latino workers in the reconstruction of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and what a great legacy from a family who has been so active and giving to our city. Thank you and congratulations to Dr. Juan Gershanik, Ana Ester Gershanik and family!
Spring Fest Time
With the warmer days ahead, everyone is ready to soak up some sun and get back to the outdoors.
Music is the center of it all. We prepare our wallets to support us during every festival coming up that brings the talented musicians on-stage and the food vendors to serve their signature creations. This month is the third edition of Top Taco, an event that has grown exponentially each time.
This event, that takes place on March 14th this year, has become a great avenue for restaurants and their business owners and for the promotion of mezcal and tequila brands. Latino cooks and restaurateurs have been able to connect to the New Orleans community, and Top Taco has allowed exposure to many restaurants, including little mom and pop's that otherwise American residents of New Orleans would have never known.
With Agave Week happening March 10th to March 14th and its tasting events, seminars and parties at the ACE Hotel, Top Taco is sure becoming a New Orleans signature event. We are excited about its growth because it gives visibility to the growing Latino community and some of its great culture.
Enjoy the wonderful Spring events and don't forget to tag VIVA NOLA in all your pictures!
