Today in NOLA 8.20.17


Today, show down with the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club in City Park. Little Gem Saloon will put on their final staging of the Pulitzer Prize nominated work Love Letters to benefit a New Orleanian in need. Explore your kinks at the Hi-Ho's BDSM-meets-burlesque show, or set your intentions in the New Moon Women's Circle at Rosalie Apothecary. On this day, bassist Julius Farmer was born on August 20, 1949. On a darker note, 269 people died of yellow fever in New Orleans on August 20, 1853, deeming the date “Black Day.” Now, more to do this Saturday.
