JEFFERSON PARISH was historically the 'playground' of New Orleanians who escaped the city for 'adult' fun at speakeasy nightclubs where the JAZZ and drinks flowed nightly - often disguised as tea or coffee!
Going back even further, our relationship with caffeine goes dates back exactly three centuries. In 1717, a Scottsman named John Law came to Louisiana exploring outlying farmland for opportunities to grow his tea and coffee importing business. A year later, he was to play a critical role in assisting his friend, Mr. Bienville, with the founding of New Orleans.
Have a beignet, sip a beverage and enjoy NOLA culture in the safety of the suburbs. Savory favorites like crawfish monica, etouffee plus dainty tea sandwiches too! Don't you wish you had been at the 'first' of many huge, successful festivals? Now is your chance!
