To mark the second anniversary of the completion of the $170-million historic restoration and grand re-opening of The Roosevelt New Orleans, two of the city’s leading tourism and sports celebrities – Mark Romig, newly named CEO of the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation, and father Jerry Romig, voice of the New Orleans Saints – will come together to wind the towering, historic clock in the hotel’s grand lobby. The event will be held Thursday, July 21 at 4:30 p.m. at the property’s University Street entrance.
Guests and the public then will second-line with the Hot 8 Brass Band down to the world-famous Sazerac Bar for a complimentary, celebratory champagne toast with hotel general manager Tod Chambers.
In addition, the adjoining Sazerac Restaurant will offer a two-for-one special on all entrees. Complimentary valet parking is available for those who dine at the Sazerac Restaurant.
