Don’t tell me about it….I’m so excited to go and it is better if I go not knowing anything about it. I was thinking of creative places to take the kids tomorrow (5 boys & 1 girl – 3 boys are visiting) -something not too expensive and not too far away. I remembered during my first visit to the Inside Northsideoffice, getting the grand tour of all the art work that has graced the past and present covers. The current issue has a picture of the UCM Museum in Abita Springs, done by local artist Gretchen Armbruster. I was told that it looks exactly like the picture and I should definitely take the kids there. They are sooooo excited after I showed them the picture of the stuffed “dogigator” on the website. I printed off 7 – $1 off the price of admission coupons – which is only $3 and we will head there first thing in the morning – it opens at 10! If you are looking for off-beat things to do check out Roadside Tourist. I will have to avoid looking at the Abita brewery or I will get the sudden urge to go in and pound a few in the afternoon!
update: if you would like to contact Gretchen, her e-mail is garmbruster1060 at yahoo dot com (remove spambuster stuff first)
