Michael Knisley, who hosts the site Bubblyotheque.com and hosts Champagne events around town organized the event Champagne Day NOLA. He wanted to make the day a more coordinated, city-wide event so he reached out to various businesses to put together specials. His only requirement: Champagne from France must be poured.
