J’s Creole Wings, operating a wing restaurant and beer garden, is a hidden gem of the Treme area. Tucked away on N. Claiborne in three brightly colored shipping containers J’s Wings is a family owned company that creates all of their own sauces and seasonings from scratch.
Their other venture located in the French Market, J’s Seafood Dock, taught them you do not need 150 seats to run a sustainable restaurant. Owners Omar and Gina Duncan pioneered the concept of building out a restaurant inside shipping containers here in the New Orleans area by first manufacturing the space in a warehouse then transporting and staging on the lot. This method has brought down their fixed overhead risk common with most brick and mortar locations. Combined with their take out business, they have flourished during these trying times and are positioned for continued success.
Catering to individuals, parties, and family gatherings, they are hitting above their weight in flavor and live up to their slogan, “We good baby”.

Co-Founders of New Orleans MOM discuss life as full-time moms & bloggers.
These days it seems, if it doesn't have an online presence, it doesn't exist. Everything and everyone has a website or a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and an Instagram following. People and companies blog about everyghing, from their personal lives to whatever is happening with their business, and that is not the only way the work works now...it's also the way the world connects.
But that wasn't always the case. Back in 2011 when Ashley Angelico had her first child, the new mother came up short when she went online looking for parenting sites geared toward the New Orleans area. It wasn't until she started her own blog that she found a kindred spirit who would eventually become her friend and business partner. "While some of my friends had childres, many didn't, and I found myself looking for resources on parenting dedicated to New Orleans. My inclination as a full-time workng mom was to look online, and I was surprised that a website specifically geared towards parents didn't exist", she recalls. "I started a blog to chronicle my journey as a mom, and that's how I met Elizabeth Schmelling. She had a similar blog, which not may people were doing in Louisiana in 2012, and when I heard about it, I had to read. I approached her about the idea of launching a blog for local moms as a side hustle, and here we are!"
"We realized that there werent really any local digital parenting resources in the greater New Orleans area and thought it would be an excellent opportunity to connect moms to local brands as well as other local moms who were navigating the challenges and triuphs of motherhood," adds Schmelling.

Q: What is one professional and one personal takeaway from this pandemic?
A: Professionally, I've learned you can do so much with so little. Personally, I've been reminded that everyone has a different experience of the same event. We all want to keep our head above water and we each have our method of doing so. Be the cheerleader..
