Laundry Day

Dirty Linen Night Rolls on Royal



Do you still have pile of unwashed clothes from White Linen Night sitting under your bed? Fear not! Saturday (8.08) is Dirty Linen Night an evening to celebrate art in the Quarter whilst indulging in a soiled sartorial sensibility.  


Today in NOLA: 8.9.14


There’ll be quite a commotion in the French Quarter today: first, the Hash House Harriers and their boldy attired volunteer runners charge through on the world’s largest Red Dress Run. In the evening, art lovers turn out on Royal Street for Dirty Linen Night, White Linen Night’s unkempt younger sibling. We’ll meet everyone for drinks at the laundromat tomorrow. Forty years ago today, Richard M. Nixon left the presidency, following his resignation announcement the night before. More to do tonight:

Dirty Linen Night Puts French Quarter Art on the Line



Don’t wash those whites worn out last weekend's art so fast. On Saturday (8-9), Royal Street plays host to Dirty Linen Night.  


Today in New Orleans: 8.10.13


There are many ways to get your strut on this fabulous Saturday. You can throw a hot red number and run around Armstrong Park for charity and then wear it later to shake your money-maker to some rock funk at Gasa Gasa. Or put on those dirty linens from last Saturday’s Art District stroll and venture downtown to the Royal Street galleries. On this day in 1964 Louis Armstrong 's classic album "Hello, Dolly" was certified Gold by the RIAA.

Now that the hottest part of the summer has settled over us it's time to air out the Quarter.


TODAY IN NEW ORLEANS 8.11.12


If you didn’t wake up bright and early to put on your red dress and run amok for local charities, you might have enough energy left for the rest of the day’s events. Mia Borders is at the Rusty Nail, there’s a Freaksheaux at the Allways Lounge, and it’s also the Second Saturday of the month. Dirty Linen Night is bringing some art appreciation to the French Quarter after last week’s lily-white Julia St. affair. Today in Louisiana history, Treme Brass Band leader and snare drummer Benny Jones Sr. was born in New Orleans, in 1943, and a hurricane killed more than 400 people on the Louisiana Coast in 1856.

Quarter Rats Crawl Art on Royal



Indulge in a French Quarter night stroll on Royal Street with wine, food, and art this Saturday at Dirty Linen Night. As the French Quarter’s response to Julia Street’s “White Linen Night”, Dirty Linen Night affords New Orleanians the opportunity to pull last week's suit out of the hamper, save some quarters set aside for the Laundromat, and saunter down the Royal Street Artist’s District’s array of galleries and shops, all while enjoying some liberating libations.
