Team Beignet at Cafe Du Monde

Posted on Thursday, May 4th, 2006.


How are four facilitators all going to fit in that little airstream?! We’ll figure it out after we clean up the powdered sugar we blew all over each other at world-famous Cafe du Monde. Veteran facilitators Nelson Simon, Veronica Ordaz, Brett Myers, and Laura Spero return to the road for the month of May. With the extra manpower, StoryCorps will be able to stay open longer hours in Jackson Square.

See that spec of silver off in the distance over Brett’s head? That’s the airstream, sitting at the corner of St. Ann and Chartres St.


Cafe Du Monde is known for it’s coffee and beignets. The beignet is not a donut, and it’s not funnel cake, but its kind of like a fried pillow covered in powdered sugar.
