We are thrilled to announce that a Moet & Chandon vending machine will be arriving in our lobby this week! To celebrate, we are hosting an Instagram-based scavenger hunt beginning Monday morning and lasting until our launch party at 5:00pm on Wednesday. Tomorrow we will share clues via Instagram stories of where to find these champagne ornaments around the French Quarter. If you find an ornament, bring it to our front desk or bar to redeem a special Moët coin that you can then use in the new machine as payment for a complimentary bottle! In addition, you will be entered into a drawing for a 3L bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut. Be sure to post to your story and tag us when you find one! Stay tuned on our stories this week for clues as to where they are hidden. Good luck! *21 and up only.
