and yet, there’s still MORE (listed below) …

Hello My FabuNOLA Family!!!

Hey all of you Fabulous Folks!!! Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve decided kick Sexy Salsa Sundays into gear again tomorrow … with a special twist. I had some divine inspirational thought late yesterday to figure out how to bring together 2 of my favorite passions in Life … Dancing and Futbol (Soccer to those of you not in the know)!!! So, I’ve decided this weekend to start just a bit earlier AND have a World Cup Finale Viewing Party that will flow right into the return of Sexy Salsa Sundays (no dance class this weekend). And Chef Kevin is back again to do a FabuFood menu & special pricing (see menu & other event details below) throughout both events.

The Blue Nile doors will open at NOON; World Cup TV Coverage starts at 12:30 pm (CST). Music and dancing will start once the World Cup 2010 commentary, closing ceremony, etc. ends (not sure when … might be around 4 or 5 pm depending on overage time and/or possibility of goal shootout). I’ll keep the doors open for dancing into the night as long as there’s a good crowd. So come on in … bring the family … bring the friends … bring people who want to gather together for some fun!!! This is the perfect start for my Birthday Festivities that will start up next weekend.

I know that so many of you have been feeling the weight of challenges lately (and so many of us have). I hope you decide to come out tomorrow to celebrate positively with us. All are welcome (whether you appreciate Salsa dancing and/or Futbol … or just want to be in a social setting where you can gather just for the shear fun of it). And remember … it’s a clean air event (no smoking) and the food menu accommodates those of us who are “conscious foodies” too.

I’m also listing some other great special events going on this month (after the Salsa listing). Plus, mark your calendar for celebrating next weekend. As mentioned above, my Birthday is coming up on July 19th (a Monday) so I’m putting the thinking cap on to figure out how to celebrate the Birthday Weekend Extravaganza (some of you might remember this from last year ;D). You can definitely count on celebrating next Sunday, July 18th for Sexy Salsa Sundays (back to 7 pm start). And if you can’t make it out next weekend, please come tomorrow to celebrate Life with Me!! You know how much I LOVE to celebrate Birthdays in this way.

And, by the way, I just want to say Thank You to all of you who read my emails and check out my Blog (and catch up constantly with me on Facebook and Twitter too). Even if I don’t always get the opportunity to respond to your highly supportive emails, I just wanted you to know that I read them and they inspire me as much as you share with me that I’ve inspired you by writing them. That’s the constant unconditional flow of Love that was meant in the first place. And, even if you aren’t able to make it out and about, the fact that you just enjoy reading them and that you’ve opened yourself up to the possibility of doing something SuperFabu in your own world … is enough. Always remember that.

Now, if you are new to FabuNOLA, please check out my Blog with past postings. The FabuNOLA Blog has a brand new look (which I’m still tweaking a bit). Also, go there to check out the “FabuNOLA It List” and “Eco-FabuNOLA”  that you can see posted regularly (please direct new people here … and ask them to sign-up for this eNewsletter too). My Blog lists Music, Dance, Wellness & Eco Happenings. More will be posted/updated as I can get to it.

If you are new to the FabuNOLA Family, welcome to the FabuFamily!! You are amongst a FabuKrewe of Great Beings … all striving for greater happiness from within. We are all beautifully inter-connected in this way. You are always loved and supported here. I greatly appreciate you for the support you’ve always shown me in return!! I’m wishing you only and all of the best.

Okay, that’s it for now. Until the next time … I’ll see You on the Page or in Person! And tell them FabuNOLA sent YOU. As always … here’s hoping to see You … Out & About!!

Be & Live Well,

~aka Miss FabuNOLA~

(July 2010)

It’s my friend, Suzaune’s (Yee McKamey-Rees) Birthday this weekend so I hope you can come out to celebrate for a few special shows she’s filling in for (not with her usual “Suzaune & Company” Band).

She will be performing this weekend (Saturday & Monday actually) with:

The Sazarac Sunrise Jazz Band, at the Balcony Music Club (BMC), on the corner of Decatur and Esplanade, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm tonight (Saturday)

AND on

Monday evening at The Maison, 508 Frenchman St. down in the Marigny, from 7:00 to 9:45 pm;

And since Suzaune’s performance already started, I think it’s safe to say this (since it’s a secret for her) that Bonnie Broel of House of Broel (on St. Charles Ave) is throwing a little party for Suzaune, our friend Ken, Myself (yes, they’ve included me and any other July Birthdays who want to come celebrate) afterward (around 10 pm). And thanks to Bonnie & Don for all you do!!

Happy Birthday Suzaune!! Many wonderful blessings to YOU and I hope you’re very surprised (gosh, I hope she doesn’t get this on her phone)!!!

My dear Salsa friend, Rocio (who is apparently my twin according to everyone … although there is a 16 year age difference … yay for me!!), gave me tickets (thanks Sweetheart) to the NOLA Bull Run Pre-Party event last night (and congrats to those of you for getting up and actually doing it at 8 am this morning).

At the great event last night, my friend John Lawrence (hello to John & Nubia) was performing Flamenco Guitar with Ven Pa’ Ca (and they were beyond AWESOME!!). The beautiful Leticia Jimenez was Flamenco Dancing (one of my other favorites) to their amazing music. This is a must catch performance tonight only.

They are having a Flamenco Show tonight (Saturday, July 10th) at Chickie Wah Wah (2828 Canal St.) at 9 pm. Hope you can make it.

And, Javier and Darlene are having their Salsa Night tonight at Club Silhouette (3505 N. Hullen, Metairie) at 9pm. $6 Cover.

Newly Fabu: CONTRIBUTE to FabuNOLA
(share in spreading even more love!!)

FabuNOLA eNewsletter, Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are all created, operated and maintained purely by my efforts to spread as much positive Spirit throughout our FabuCity (and Globally). Through the years now so many of you have received my FabuNOLA emails, funding has not been involved (only recently has there been minimal advertising while transitioning towards greater advancement in this direction).

As the outreach numbers continue to expand (which is so beautiful), I want to be able to grow with you and offer a better experience. The only way this will happen is by opening up to more funding sources (Investors & Sponsors are always welcome … as well as gifts of ANY size).

Would you like to be a BIG part of the growth & expansion of a positive movement in New Orleans (and beyond)? If so, please consider contributing in order to insure these efforts continue to happen.

I’ll leave you with these Words of Encouragement:

“One of the fascinating things about human beings is this:  Believe for long enough that you are not as smart as others and this will actually lead to intellectual ineptitude.  But, confronted with the same doubts, if you choose to believe that your mind is merely dormant for now, lacking in exercise, once you begin to train it, there are no bounds to what you can achieve.”
