Trew 2 the Game #26: Quick Holiday Hits
It’s holiday time and the Bourbon Street Shots office was given a few days off – but I felt guilty.

P.P.S. I’m happy for Shaqramento, but still wish he was part owner of the Pelicans. There, I said it.

Let’s give something back to the team this weekend? After a long road trip it sure would be nice to welcome the #BirdGang back into the Arena with a loud horde of Pelicans fans. It’s a holiday week so scoop up your weird cousins, your trash-talking uncle and that cute boy/girl who lives next door and bring them to the
