NEW ORLEANS, La. - June 14, 2012 - Prepare to be gobsmacked on Friday, July 27, 2012 at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans as we kick off the 2012 Summer Olympics! Reserve your spot for a pub style lunch in M bistro or traditional English Afternoon Tea in The Davenport Lounge where large screen televisions will broadcast the opening ceremonies at 3:00 p.m. CST. Beefeaters will be on hand to administer crowd control and ladies are invited to don their favorite fascinator or hat! Men should come bearing flags or attire that is representative of their favorite country. Last year, the hotel's Royal Wedding, Big Easy Style events sold out and more than one hundred and fifty well-appointed patrons packed The Davenport Lounge as early as 3:30 a.m. to watch the wedding on big screen televisions. We expect the same turnout in July for the Olympics!

We wish our U.S. countrymen well as they compete in this global event and if we route the British again (look up the Battle of New Orleans), we apologize in advance. Pip pip cheerio!
