Heading to Jazz Fest via the Canal streetcar line? Make sure to buy a transfer from your streetcar conductor and hop off at Blue Dot Donuts. Three New Orleans police officers started one of NOLA’s most admired donut shops, and the folks at Blue Dot take pride in creating new riffs on traditional donut flavors that are anything but stereotypical. Four words: Maple Bacon Long Johns. Other favorites include: Peanut Butter and Jelly and Red Velvet as well as seasonal flavors like King Cake and Pumpkin Spice and Sweet Potato. Staying in the Irish Channel? Their second location on Tchoupitoulas makes it all too convenient to get your donut fix no matter where y’at.

A year ago, I got to do a photoshoot in this abandoned factory in New Orleans! Wearing a costume I designed and made from scratch, for the Steampunk Adventure Webseries “Archangel”! It was such an adventure and I’m happy the shoot was with my close friend @omg_dj_judy! Brian came along for some photos as well! I wanna make time for more original costumes this year! #YayaHan #costuming #costumedesign #costumemaking #Steampunk #Archangel #MuseumReplicas #Webseries #NOLA #originalcostume #photoshoot #travellife (at yayahan.com)
