Yes, please! Many bars and restaurants around New Orleans are getting ready for Champagne Day NOLA 2016 which takes place tomorrow, October 21, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Michael Knisley, who hosts the site Bubblyotheque.com and hosts Champagne events around town organized Champagne Day NOLA 2016. He wanted to make the day a more coordinated, city-wide event so he reached out to various businesses to put together specials. His only requirement: Champagne from France must be poured. Knisley encourages people to "save the other delicious sparkling wine you have for another day."
From "the Vallée de la Marne to the banks of the Mississippi", folks from all around the world will be sipping champagne with friends. Why not join them and celebrate with a glass - or two? See below for a list of places around town where you can go to celebrate.
