Welcome, Babes: Meet The Insiders

We have a blast running around living la vida NOLA and blogging about it for your enjoyment, but sometimes in this city there’s just too much to eat, drink and do for just two babes. That’s why we recruited 8 lovely twenty-something ladies who share our same passion for food, drinks, travel, festin’ and of course for New Orleans. We think you’ll enjoy their adventures as much as we do!
