Today in NOLA: 3.03.15


Today’s events include a little exercise for the grey matter. Jesmyn Ward is reading uptown. Downtown, a satire about race is screening. On Frenchmen, a true bluesman is sharing his unique sound. On this day in 1995, LSU mascot Mike IV was put down after 20 years and 9 months, 14 of which were spent representing Louisiana State University. Now, more to do on this sunny Tuesday. 


Today in New Orleans 8.20.13


Football comes alive on stage in Mid-City, the piano prince of New Orleans is playing two shows at Snug Harbor, and Alvin Youngblood Hart is singing the blues on Canal Street. On this date in 1853:  269 people died in New Orleans of Yellow Fever.  The day is remembered as “Black Day”. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

Tonight, get fresh at Hollygrove’s annual Party in the Garden, catch a horror flick on St. Claude, or head to Oak Street for the new regular gig from Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. Happy Birthday to local singer/songwriter Susan Cowsill, born May 20, 1959. Now, more to do this Monday.  


So Fresh and So Green: Hollygrove's Garden Party


Whether you buy their veggies straight from the source or eat them plated at restaurants like Tivoli & Lee, most NOLA folks have enjoyed produce from Hollygrove Market (8301 Olive Street). Tomorrow night, the farm’s fans can show some love at the nonprofit’s Fourth Annual Party in the Garden. 


Burning Bayou to Light Up T-Bois Blues Fest


This year’s T-Bois Blues Festival in Larose is expanding again, and not just through additions to the lineup.  Members of the NOLA Burners art collective will be establishing a new area on the campgrounds called the Burning Bayou at this year's fest, slated for April 5-6. Borrowing the mentality and creativity of the famous Burning Man festival, this micro village will kindle a little extra creativity amongst campers and culminate in a giant gator effigy being engulfed in flame.


Today in New Orleans: 8.10.12


Today, the French Film Fest gets underway, burlesque goes to the Super Mario Bros. and Frenchmen gets the blues - twice. On this day in Louisiana history, the highest temperature in state history was recorded in Plain Dealing at 114 degrees (1936), and the state legislature held its shortest session ever of  one hour (1959). Stay out of the heat and make the day long with these:
