Faster Than A Feline: Alleycat Races for a Cause


By Andrew Mullins III

On Saturday, pedal pushers on all kinds of bikes will gather in Duncan Square for the Alleycat Race to benefit Community Kitchen. Riders will navigate the city on their own terms, visiting checkpoints and performing bizarre tasks, to win prizes in several categories including Best Cruiser and DFL (Dead Fucking Last). All proceeds benefit the Community Kitchen, a volunteer-run organization that cooks and and serves homemade meals to individuals and neighborhoods. 


Today in New Orleans 4.20.13


The weekend is jam packed with crawfish, music, and beer, from Tulane to Mardi Gras World. Gear up for a Spring Brake Yrself race this evening, plus a free festival in Mid City’s beautiful Fortier Park. On this day in 1877, President Rutherford B. Hayes effectively ended Reconstruction in the state when he withdrew federal troops from Louisiana. Now, more to do this Saturday.
