Arrow Attention: The 1st Annual AAC Open House / Meet & Greet/ BBQ/ Mardi Gras Experience!

The staff here at AAC have been wanting to host an open house for a while now. The main obstacle to overcome was the date to have the event. After much deliberation we decided to host the event in conjunction with Mardi Gras since AAC is located just blocks from the Metairie Parade Route. This way guests arriving from out of town will not only get to enjoy our event but can also experience Mardi Gras! We have tons of ideas for this event, we want it to be a meet to be remembered

Location: AAC Headquarters- 4401 Division St. Metairie, LA 70002
Date: Saturday, February 26, 2011
Meet Starts: 11:00am
Parade Starts: 5:00pm
Hotel Info: Marriot Lakeway


This is a Family Friendly Event!
We intentionally planned this to correlate with "Family Gras" which is a free live music festival less than a mile from AAC.

You can read more about Family Gras on their page HERE.


We will have a Private Shuttle Service for our guests to take you to and from the Main Parade Route, Family Gras, AAC, and the Marriott. This way our guests do not need to "Party and Drive". If for any reason you need to leave your vehicle at AAC overnight we can secure it in our gated/ surveillanced lot. We want everyone to enjoy this event but we do not condone or will allow drinking and driving.

There is ample parking on our property but we are working on overflow parking if the event grows larger than we are expecting.

We are giving everyone advanced notice for this event so we hope to see you all here! This should be an easy car gathering to talk your significant other into attending because there are literally hundreds of things to do in the Greater New Orleans area that weekend. It would be great time to take a vacation in New Orleans.

Here is a map of the area layout-
A= Family Gras Festival
B= Mardi Gras Parade Route
C= AAC (Meet Location)
D= Marriott Hotel


There will be a New Orleans style BBQ and (if we can get them) Crawfish Boil
at AAC all day on Saturday and possibly Sunday if there is interest to meet on Sunday and see the daytime parades as well. We have good food, shuttle transportation, and everything taken care of for you guys, we just want you to show up!

Please let us know if you plan to attend, we will continue to update this thread with a complete itinerary for the weekend.

DEFINITELY COMING OUT FOR THIS GUYS!!
Won't be at hotel probably since have family to crash with on northshore save some $$ there.

For everyone unfamiliar with the area and worried about the crazy Mardi Gras setting I just wanted to let you know that the parade route in Metairie is the best to bring a family to. Living in New Orleans or 15+ years this was my preferred parade route because it is alot calmer environment with alot less drunken idiots and problems you encounter in the Quarter. Parents would bring us here since we could walk without problems. Still all the fun and if you want the Quarter is only 15 minutes or so away to have some fun at night!

Great that you guys are doing this and you can count me in! BBQ and possibly crawfish sounds AMAZING.

Coming down Monday (June 28th) most likely to get a few things, been talking with Jonathan and can't wait to meet yall. And by this event I might need a few more things

Would love to do Mardi Gras in February, but we will be entrenched in hockey at that point in time next year..

At the shop or at the Hotel, we are not sure how big this is going to be yet but we have a good sized yard here to hold cars.

it's getting from Miami out of Florida is the worst part of ALL my road trips... it just so.... flat and boring drive.. once you get out of Florida it's all good.... lol not hating on my state.. I love Miami... its just a paint to get out driving.


Anyway... have fun and I look forward to seeing the photos of the event.
