Spirits' Soiree


This time of year, the ghost tours in the Quarter are not just for tourists. Today, the Friends of the Cabildo announced details for their popular Ghostly Tours and their 5th Annual Hostly Gallivant fundraiser.


Byrdie's Hosts 'Ghost' Re-enactment V-Day Contest


Byrdie's Gallery (2422 St. Claude Avenue) has a solution for those still searching for not-so-serious Valentines Day plans. Couples, pairs of friends, and individuals are invited to the ceramics studio/coffehouse/gallery to do their best re-enactment of the iconic pottery scene from Ghost, the 1990’s classic.

Today in New Orleans Fringe Fest ends its 76 show collective, while Oak Street Po-Boy Festival makes our city even tastier for day.   The buckjumpers buckjump their way up and down and around Washington Avenue.   Ghost-The Musical doesn’t have Patrick Swayze, but it does have live original music and, well, ghosts.   On this day in 2008, the Saints scored a franchise record 51 points.  On the same day in 1980, head coach Dick Nolan was fired after losing to the Rams.

Who Dat! The Saints are taking on the Falcons in Georgia tonight, with a tailgate party at home at Lucy's. Fringe continues throughout the Marigny, Bywater and Central City, and Mia Borders is performing at the Ogden. On this day in 1648, explorer Rene Robert Cavalier, more commonly known as LaSalle, was born. Now more to do this Thursday.

Tonight, the Pelicans get a chance to redeem themselves against the Utah Jazz after last week’s loss in Salt Lake City. It’s the first day of the eighth annual Fringe Fest! Find out what to see tonight, for only $8 a play. In mainstream theater news, Ghost is at the Saenger. On this day in 1922, Governor John Milliken Parker met with President Warren G. Harding to discuss KKK violence in the state. Now, more to do this Wednesday.
