You are invited to join us for a fun filled weekend for the NBA All Star Weekend in New Orleans!!!
We will be staying at the same hotel we stayed at for Essence in 2012, the Wyndham Riverfront! With it's location a few blocks from Harrah's Casino, directly across the street from the HUGE Riverfront Mall complex, it's huge rooms and facilities and a short walking distance from the French Quarter and Bourbon street, we will have a GREAT time yet again in New Orleans!
We have a LIMITED number of rooms available, as you may already know most of New Orleans is either already sold out or overpriced for this special event weekend, so be sure to RSVP here on the Meetup page and also be sure to make your deposits timely to ensure a space on the rooming list while we still have rooms available.
Our rooms will be prepaid upon arrival, but the Hotel will require a credit card or debit card for your room incidentals (room service, etc).
There are absolutely no refunds! Be sure you are certain you will be attending before you make your payment.
Be sure to make your payment dates on time. We will need to keep our payments timely to keep this great reduced rate for this special NBA event weekend.
Be prepared for a LOT of crowds, drinks and fun! New Orleans is a VERY busy, crazy crowd on a REGULAR weekend. If you are not a person that prefers to avoid crowded events or loud events or a lot of drinks, this may not be the event for you. Almost every bar offers 3 for 1 drinks for Happy Hour, so there will be PLENTY of drinks flowing all weekend, and probably the loud crowds that tend to follow such crowds.
I have posted the payment details below, as well as the deadline dates. I will only send 1 reminder per deadline, so please be sure to keep your schedule current to reserve your spot! :)
And if you would like to attend, but do NOT have a roommate, be sure to post that in the comments section to see who else may be looking for a roommate. Or feel free to drop e a line, and I can see if I can match you with one.
Thanks, and I hope to see you all in New Orleans!!!
