Inaugural Coffee Festival this Weekend

The first ever New Orleans Coffee Festival hits Freret Street this weekend.

I don't know how Freret Street, of all places, was chosen to host a coffee festival when there's only one coffee establishment on the revitalizing commercial strip (Village Coffee), unless, as I told my roommate, you count all the imaginary coffee shops I've started wishfully in every vacant storefront along the street.

I believe Ensign, one of the new shops on the street, will be open for the first time during the festival.
