NOLA Drive-In Postponed


Since Cold War paranoia and the antics of Peter Sellers are best viewed when the Big Board's not sopping wet, tonight's scheduled NOLA Drive-In screening of Dr. Strangelove at the old Elysian Fields Ave. Schwegmann's has been postponed. No details have been released on the rain date, yet.

White (1899) and Lil’ Kim were born (1975), and when George Gershwin died (1937). So read some lit., eat a crumpet, drink a Horchata, and see some French films, which are among these offerings:
