There’s a little something for everyone this hump day, with David Sedaris at Tulane, free music in Lafayette Square, and even a live talk show on St. Claude. On this day in our state’s history, Buddy Roemer III beat three-term Governor Edwin Edwards in the 1987 Gubernatorial Election.

On this day in Louisiana history, Jean Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville succeeded Ensign de Sauvolle as commandant of Louisiana (1701), Gov. William CC Claiborne became America's highest paid governor at $7,500 per year (1812). Now for some of the present's presents:


All You Hold Beer

Avenue Pub, Local Bars Plan Menu of Tasting, Crawls to Celebrate American Craft Beer Week
