|Redbeard Cycles, Orleans Avenue, New Orleans|
The newest place on Orleans Avenue is Redbeard Cycles, a shop that is keeping a low internet profile for the time being. There is nothing wrong with that. Watch out for motorcycles. Motor scooters, too. And bicyclists. And pedestrians. And little stray dogs.
I was telling Frau Schmitt that I am starting to feel embarrassed by the reviews we keep getting on Trip Advisor. I don't mind exceeding people's expectations when they don't expect much. The reviews we've been getting are making me blush. She told me not to worry about it. She is usually right about these things, but I prefer to take the same strategy that the Tic Toc Cafe does:

If you stay in our inn, we treat you the way we would like to be treated. When you check in, you aren't a customer. You are a friend we haven't yet met. That's why you're welcome. The money that changes hands counts for something, of course, but the fact that we are proud of our inn and we want you to enjoy our little part of New Orleans counts for more. Fond memories are made on Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans, LA 70119.
