Today in NOLA 7.29.17


Today, feast on a shrimp boil (for a good cause!) at The Ace Hotel. Learn the art of brush lettering with Lionheart Prints, or cool off with some very funny people in the Orpheum's Ice Pit. Mecha Con's late night screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show will have you don your cult classic finery. On this day in 1862, Confederate spy Belle Boyd was arrested by Union forces. She was awarded the Southern Cross of Honor for passing information to General Stonewall Jackson. Now, more to do this Saturday.

 


Big Shrimpin'


It's mid-summer, which means you might have had your fill of crawfish boils by now. Turn your attention to another fruit of the sea with this weekend's upscale shrimp boil at The Ace Hotel. On Saturday (7.29), chefs from three top restaurants around town will go head to head to benefit the Audubon G.U.L.F. Institute.
