What do mythical creatures, craft cocktails, a Creole aristocrat and a vengeful father-in-law have to do with the development of Jackson Square?
THE PONTALBA EXPERIENCE AT THE CABILDO, 8.7.19
I recommend Country Roads Supper Club events as they're highly entertaining and delicious cultural events held in remarkable settings.
This upcoming Pontalba Experience on Saturday, September 7, offers an incredibly rare opportunity to dine in the upstairs gallery of the Cabildo - a magnificent Spanish Colonial building integrally tied, of course, to the Pontalba story....and then's there's the enchanting view overlooking Jackson Square!
The evening is steeped in the 19th century...all tied to the Baroness de Pontalba and the Rise of Jackson Square Exhibition that closes in early October.
Combine the unforgettable setting, theatrical performances on site, along with the artistry of Dickie Brennan's talented chefs and inspired drinks from his Tableau Restaurant, and you have a magical evening! For ticket and additional information click here.
For those that love the backstory, this is history filled with drama, intrigue and unforgettable architecture...Jackson Square!
Consider reading Christina Vella's book, Intimate Enemies: The Two Worlds of the Baroness de Pontalba, in advance. You'll deepen your understanding of our state's rich history.
Vella's book helped me recognize an opportunity to reconnect the Pontalba family back to New Orleans...thus helping to bring the Baroness de Pontalba and the Rise of Jackson Square Exhibition together in time for our Tricentennial Celebration.
History continues to enrich my life and so much for the better! For more about my experience with the Pontalba family, visit: https://www.peterpatout.com/blog/climax-of-tricentennial-year!
