On December 4, 2012, Professional Association of Innkeepers of New Orleans (PIANO) and the Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association (LBBA) held a Christmas Party on the top floor of Basin Street Station in New Orleans. In addition to PIANO and the LBBA, the event was sponsored by City Sightseeing New Orleans and New Orleans Paddlewheels. It was a festive evening with lots of fun and delicious food provided by Vacherie Restaurant and New Orleans Paddlewheels. This first-time event gave guests, many of whom were innkeepers, an opportunity to network as well as learn what City Sightseeing and New Orleans Paddlewheels can offer bed and breakfast guests who stay in or around the New Orleans area. Guests were treated to an abbreviated tour on the City Sightseeing’s new hop on–hop off double decker, open air bus that just premiered in New Orleans in November of 2012. It was lovely to see the city adorned with Christmas lights and decorations while the tour guide told of interesting facts about New Orleans.
Thanks go out to the many people from all the sponsored organizations who worked together to make this event a success. it was truly an event to remember!
