Springtime IntheNOLA with Mark Romig: Azaleas, snowballs, crawfish boils, and beer

Written by
Thanks to educator Danielle Morris, Story Block Media’s Deepak Saini, Jolie and Elizabeth’s Sarah Elizabeth Dewey, and social media gadfly Champ Superstar for sharing their favorite #SpringtimeIntheNOLA things!
Now, we got New Orleans head honcho, supreme leader, top dog, and VOICE of the Saints(!), Mr. Mark Romig, President and CEO of the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC), sharing all his favorites (and you know he knows)!
First things first, Mark enjoys the beautiful azaleas, delicious snowballs, scrumptious crawfish, and ice-cold beers that comes with spring. “Besides those things,” he continued, “spring is all about the festivals that fill the calendar through the end of May and into the summer. Spring is also special because of the hope it brings with the blooming flowers, fresh leaves on the live oaks, and the cool spring evenings.”
Here are some of Mark’s other favorites in the spring:
Favorite Festival
Mark: If I named my favorite festival, I couldn’t come to work anymore! They are ALL my favorites! As far as food, I find each festival seems to excel in some form and fashion. Whether its crawfish bread, roast beef po-boys, shrimp remoulade, a gumbo or jambalaya, or a variation of king cake, we are blessed with a cornucopia of dishes that represent the diversity of our city and region.
Favorite Musicians/Bands to See
Mark: So many! Better Than Ezra, Hot 8 Brass Band, Irma Thomas, Cowboy Mouth, Bonerama, Kermit Ruffins, Rockin’ Dopsie Jr., Dr. John, Sasha Masakowski, Deacon John, Ronnie Kole, and the Yat Pack, to name a few!

Favorite Snowball
Mark: Basic strawberry from Hansen’s Sno-Bliz.

Favorite Po-Boy
Mark: Roast beef and Swiss cheese dressed from Parkway Bakery.
Favorite Happy Hour
Mark: First, my home (um, how can we get an invitation, Mark?)! Second would be Café Adelaide & the Swizzle Stick Bar.

Favorite Place to Get Boiled Crawfish
Mark: Acme Oyster House.
Lil’ Lagniappe
Mark: Charbroiled oysters from Drago’s and Acme are the best!
