The Love Your City mural is my second favorite mural . I ’ m biased toward the Call to Action mural on the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau ' s downtown offices .
But the Love Your City mural reminds me to cherish and love the things that make Shreveport-Bossier special . I ’ ve been at the Tourist Bureau for 27 years . Every research report we have conducted identified one of our community ’ s greatest assets as our people .
Even the building the mural is located on , the Hub Ministry , is about loving those with the greatest needs .
In this issue we are celebrating the many things that we love about our community – people , food , and places that make us special and demonstrate our joie de vivre , our cheerful enjoyment of life .
We are excited to feature Damien “ Chapeaux ” Chapman , owner of Orlandeaux ’ s Café . He is the epitome of someone who loves this community . This year his family celebrates 100 years of serving delicious food to our locals and visitors .
We will also introduce you to other things that we love about our community - gaming , outdoor patio dining , Instagrammable spots , and local insights .
I invite you to come and fall in love with Shreveport-Bossier .
Stacy Brown , CDME President , Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau
