The Peabody Hotel in Memphis may have its ducks, but Brennan’s in New Orleans can match the attraction.  The French Quarter restaurant has its own resident family of turtles. Since the spring of 2015, 10 of them have inhabited the fountain pool in the French Quarter restaurant’s lush courtyard. NolaVie’s Renée Peck spoke with Brennan’s General Manager Christian Pendleton about the resident turtles, and the annual parade that honors them – surely the slowest second line on Earth.
