W Hotels NOLA Reveal Party 9-27-12
@WHotelsNOLA (french quarter)
#JazzRoom @WHotelsNOLA of course there's a bowtie pillow on the bed
#TarotRoom turntable dock station below flatscreen
(in every room & mp3 player radio by bedside)
#TarotRoom ShadowBox (later the ShadowDancers will arrive...
they dance inside the ShadowBox in fringe & feathers with changing lights)
2nd level bar CityScape/Reveal Party
out the #TarotRoom window
follow the yellow (carpet) line
a shadow dance
Tesla liked No. 3 & so do I
3rd floor room 13
on the way from the #TarotRoom (or are they all on the 3rd floor...
hmmm...must go stay & see...)
(well even before this) room numbers have faces
cottages by the pool, separate from the JazzRooms or the TarotRooms
they have chandeliers over the spa, in each downstairs cottage room
Interactive Jazz image on another shadow (liquid) wall
you move/it moves - there's a shadow pool ripple...
Live Painting event in progress at @WHotelsNOLA reveal party
#wrhythm 2 painters painting live
another of a different sort
voyeaurism at it's best
Shoepick - it's a fish - an ugly Ugly fish
but it makes Cajun Caviar
so suddenly it's - if not beautiful - worthy of praise
(I could eat it, was not salty, did not pop, also did not spit it out...
still you can tell it's from a fish - lovely sliver of biscuit under it)
Sazerak on Nitrogen
so the NitrogenDrinkRoom
next door to So Bou
Poolside @WHotelsNOLA French Quarter
Yes tomorrow (or is it today already)
is the Harvest Full Moon
what timing...or did someone plan this all - clever
#Quadron CoCo - Danish beauty
peeking thru the wrought iron
Danish is not someone from Amsterdarm
in case you were guessing
it is someone from Denmark
(I lived in Norway--I am still confused...
so what's Scandinavia? Denmark/Norway/Sweden...)
So Bou is a Design wonder
they are catering @WHotelsNOLA Reveal Party
Fab-u-lous hardly touches a good enough description...
also Fab-u-lous - and - beau-ti-ful
Find her band Quadron here...
LivePainting duo touch-up at end
candle light stars/lanterns in the courtyard trees
over the elevator wall
those are 'not' real shutters
nor are those real people in the windows
each window opens & there is a story going on
we think one of these guys is two-timing up there
then the stars fall & you know it's fantasy for sure
(I mean if you've drank a bunch of those 'Quarter' gin 'n fruit cocktail drinks on offer & then just happen to look up after you leave the bar outside in the courtyard you may think it's all for real...)
#ShadowPuddle shadow wall
instagram/tweet @whotelsnola with hashtag & it shows up here
at the reveal party on the bricks/brick wall with your instagram/twitter photo
lookie look who's up there now...yes SharoninaVolvo (figured it out by night's end?!)
Love/am mesmerized by these little bottles, the bottles on the shelves & the bottle light wall...
an art installation of mirrors/lights/glass bottles - I could get lost in them...
she loves the bottle mirror lights as well...
So Bou is so beautiful
I don't know which is more--the restaurant or the food
(if the catering tastes like this how must the dinners be?!)
Why the name you ask?
So Bou = South of Bourbon (as in go south of Bourbon Street to find them on Rue Chartres)
the beer tables
you get a card
you get a glass
you start the taps
it keeps track
it's like the wine dispensers/cards at Pour in Lafayette only it's beer
I adored the lights in this section, over the beer tap tables...
Everywhere you look, as in the WHotelsNOLA French Quarter
there is something interesting to be captivated by...
W New Orleans - French Quarter
And what did we take home besides all this?
an action FlipBook...
Oh my--how to share that? nevermind...
Reveal the Rhythm:
This Party Rocks
those were our 2 signs - we continued the duo-ness of the evening...
duo of Quadron, duo of 2 livepainters, duo of Jazz room & Tarot room...
My Tarot room reading by the way--turned over the Princess Card and a Money Card...
Well, I thought...duh--I'm here at this party?! Nothing like putting on the Ritz or the W...
Living Large in NOLA comes to an end (not really, it went up from here next night at the Audubon Cottages--a full moon fantasy was truly harvested in the hotels alone...but that's it for this post?!)
