After my decadent and relaxing showcation in New Orleans I’ll return home to St. Louis for a brief pit-stop full of fun and business before I head to Indianapolis and Logansport, Indiana and on to Detroit for Noir Night. New Orleans has been fantastic and I never want to leave, but alas duty calls home!
