From Southern Decadence last weekend to this week's Saints season opener, the New Orleans tourist season is in full gear. To rest up over Labor Day, we enjoyed a staycation housesitting a friend's retro home in Mid City. Walking through revamped City Park with its hand-made Venetian gondola, dining on seafood at Liuzza's and simply staying in, here are photos from Labor Day weekend.
