Irish House Ready for Bloomsday



To most, today, June 16, might just be another Tuesday. But for James Joyce fans around the world, June 16 marks the ever-important literary celebration, Bloomsday. In commemoration of the Irish writer’s novel Ulysses, The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.) will be hosting a reading of the epic story. Writers and literary enthusiasts from across the city will come out to narrate excerpts of the famously dense, Ulysess. 


Today in NOLA: 6.16.15


This Tuesday, get your movie fix with Man From Reno, listen to James Joyce’s Ulysses at The Irish House, watch LSU take on Cal St. Fullerton or jam with the usuals, Treme Brass Band. On this day in 1932, Huey Long’s new state capitol was opened during the inauguration of Governor O.K. Allen. Now, more for your Tuesday.

Today in New Orleans: 6.16.12


Today, join the marathon reading of “Ulysses” for Bloomsday at The Irish House, drink all-day to benefit The Roots of Music in Charity Poker Crawl, sing your heart out at the start of the five-week Stage Door Idol competition, rock out at Punk Fest at Big Top Three Ring Circus, and gawk at the many burlesque troupes hitting the town tonight. On this day in history, trombonist Homer Eugene was born in New Orleans (1914), and two barges rammed the Lake Ponchartrain Causeway, killing six people (1964). Now back to today: 


Bloomsday at Mick's


For most of us, it's just Thursday. But for those among us that find themselves enthralled by books longer than the Bible, and partial to use of a companion book to navigate the one they're reading, it's Bloomsday. The annual holiday, conceived by literary fanboys and girls in awe of James Joyce's ultimate tome, Ulysses, is marked around the globe with reading, and, in the storied Irish tradition, plenty of drink. Locally, a celebration is set for tonight at Mick's Irish pub, located in Mid-City at the corner of Bienville and Bernadette. There will be reading, until, of course, everyone's fluthered. More details over at Toulouse Street.
