Ten years ago, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, AARP had to cancel our Life@50+ national conference in New Orleans.

Hands down, the best $25 I've ever spent: AARP's  Life@50+ National Event. That's the price of admission for the entire three day event ($35 for non-members), and you easily get 10 times that amount in return value in the form of world class entertainment, cutting edge information, and schwag ... lots and lots of schwag.

We were already thrilled to be showing this year's most prominent movie for grownups -  The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - at our film festival this year, but 20th Century Fox did us a true solid by hosting a High British Tea reception before today's screening.
Greetings from New Orleans. I've just spent the evening strolling around the French Quarter, which for those of you who have never been is something of a cross between Downtown Disney and the Innermost Circle of Hell.But most importantly, this afternoon I was at the Louisiana Theatre at the New Orleans Convention Center watching the final preparations for our Movies for Grownups Film Festival. It's all part of AARP's Life@50+ Member Event, which is drawing tens of thousands of folks from all over the country.
