“The Saints are truly a source of pride for the Who Dat Nation and we look forward to them beating the Seahawks, the first in the road to a Two Dat,” said Mayor Landrieu. “Like our Saints, we also pride ourselves on our cuisine, especially Louisiana seafood. But we don’t expect to be sending any to the ‘Emerald City’ anytime soon. We look forward to some of Seattle’s salmon next week.”

  • Louisianaseafood including oysters and shrimp
  • Gumbo

  • Music from the Seattle scene

Today being the official start of the 2011 Carnival season, Mayor Landrieu also invited Mayor McGinn to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
