It’s no secret that the rate of smashed car windows around the city has increased ten-fold. Just yesterday, 35 car windows were smashed on campus at the University of New Orleans. All around Lakeview have been countless reports of broken windows; even driving down Canal Boulevard you can see the remnants of broken glass left behind.
And while no one seems to have a solution to the problem, the Velvet Cactus is standing up and helping nurse the pain away, even if but a tad. Per their recent Facebook post, if you bring in your police report or window replacement invoice dated within 7 days, you can get a free margarita on the house (frozen or rocks)! This offer ends on Mardi Gras Day.
The Velvet Cactus is located at 6300 Argonne Blvd in Lakeview. View their website here.
