Historic Walking Tour of the French Quarter ($35/person)
Sunday, September 25 8:00am-11:00am
All attendees are invited to register for this private walking tour of the Historic French Quarter complete with stops at famous New Orleans attractions and facts about the city and its unique culture. Founded in 1718, New Orleans has been home to many colorful inhabitants and happenings. In its early beginnings as a French Colony, the city was first settled with Paris’ most notorious prison outcasts before the addition of European aristocrats. We will also venture into the most famous cemetery in New Orleans, St. Louis No. 1. This hallowed ground boasts the final resting place of famed Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau and the still-living Nicolas Cage. This tour does not conflict with any other scheduled ARM events.

Monday, September 26 11:00am-2:00pm
In this class, attendees actually cut, season and sauté a complete dinner with one of our expert chefs, and afterwards sit down and enjoy the meal they have just created. Learn about the history of Creole cuisine as you sip on Abita Beer or house wine. Attendees will receive recipe cards and a New Orleans School of Cooking apron.
