I was at a party last night up on the roof top of the Ritz Carlton on Canal Street last night. My friends and I decided to hit the lounge bar on the 3rd floor. So, we took the elevator down to the 3rd floor and when walking to the bar there was this open entry way with this large antique desk sitting there. My friend walked around and sat down at the desk for a moment. The desk was beautiful, but I was curious if it was an actual antique or some sort of knock off. So I checked one of the drawers in the front to see if it would open and look for some marking of the craftsman. Well, the drawer did open and inside was a piece of stationary which had been folded up. I unfolded the paper and began to read the following … I found this hilarious and random as well as a little relatable. I think everyone in New Orleans whether your living there or not (which I do) has had a similar moment in time of needing the flee!
Found while cleaning out my desk at work. I got to the bottom of a pile of papers that had been left by the previous occupant of my desk and found a CD labeled “Release the Beaver.” I popped it into the computer and found this single photo file. Something about this photo made me hold onto it. The pink hues, the giant beaver, the giant beaver pride.
FOUND by Sean Solo in The Marigny, New Orleans, Louisiana
I’ve been hoping to find something like this since I first read FOUND in a Madison bar many years ago. I think the letter speaks for itself, and I hope it repays some of the chuckles I’ve had from this site over the years.
