Life hacks for the great outdoors

A few handy items to make it the best festival season yet
Festival season has sprung, and with it the need to pack smart tools to help you enjoy the outdoors in New Orleans in the spring and summer. Here are a few of CUE's new favorite things.

From the editor

CUE goes global this May with features that we hope will give you a little "cultcha," as Vic and Nat'ly would say.  To showcase spring fashions, we recreated Havana in the courtyard of a Faubourg Marigny restaurant with lush greenery and bright pops of color.

Ceiling medallions and moldings add details and dimension

Design is looking up
When it comes to home decor, wall color and furniture selection are the usual focal points of decorating. It's easy to overlook the statement-making architectural elements of a room, like decorative ceiling medallions and moldings.

Culture Chest takes kids around the world

The New Orleans-based book subscription service promotes world cultures to children
While she was growing up in Houma, Rose Espiritu — who is of Nigerian and Filipino descent — struggled to find literature that reflected her heritage.

Floral-patterned finds for home and more

Wear + where: Maritza Mercado-Narcisse

Dancer, teacher and founder of the Narcisse Movement Project
How long have you been dancing?I started formal training at (age) 11, so the better part of 30 years. I took classes under Renee Holly, a former Balanchine ballerina.

Gambit's CUE turns 10

A decade of anniversary items
Here's a playlist to accompany CUE's 10th anniversary issue.

From the editor: Our baby is all grown up.

  Ten years ago this month, the owners and editors of Gambit launched CUE magazine to feature "Contemporary, Uncompromising, Exposed" fashion, home and beauty products and advice for locals.   The tug of war between tradition and innovation is never felt so strongly as when milestones like anniversaries are reached.

A decade of CUE deserves diamonds
