Let’s get this straight from the start: NaNola is a play on words, combining “nano” (which means small) and Nola (which is an abbreviation for New Orleans, Louisiana). Got it? With Shane Spillenger (formerly of Jillian’s) at the helm, the New Orleans-themed restaurant and bar NaNola first opened its doors about a month ago, but the restaurant/bar will celebrate its official grand opening on Saturday (November 30).
Doors opens at 4pm with a three-hour fundraiser for the Estherville Animal Shelter featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks, as well as other food and drink specials. The festivities will be capped off by live music from the Sunny Side of the Street Band beginning at 7pm. And for those who have a little too much fun, Martin, Harding & Mazzoti will be sponsoring a safe-ride home program for the event.
