Irish House Ready for Bloomsday



To most, today, June 16, might just be another Tuesday. But for James Joyce fans around the world, June 16 marks the ever-important literary celebration, Bloomsday. In commemoration of the Irish writer’s novel Ulysses, The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.) will be hosting a reading of the epic story. Writers and literary enthusiasts from across the city will come out to narrate excerpts of the famously dense, Ulysess.

Carnival Photo Recap



On Monday (2.08) the party started and contunuedd through into Mardi Gras. There really is no way to do justice to New Orleans' Carnival celebration. Fat Tuesday simply must be experienced for yourself. However, NoDef's  Paulo Steven Diniz sacrificed safety and liver alike to embed amongst the crowds and bring y'all some snapshots of the big fete.


Today in NOLA: 2.10.16


It’s all over until February 28th next year! Ash Wednesday tends to be subdued in New Orleans, but if you do feel like getting out, the Pelicans are back in town, the Leaf is hosting world music night, and National Book Award Finalist Emily St. John is reading in the Garden District. On this day in 1763, the Treaty of Paris handed the Louisiana colony over to Spain. Now, more to do this Monday.  


Parade Planner: Mardi Gras Day


After weeks of parades, it all comes to a peak today, Mardi Gras Day. The iconic Zulu and Rex will roll down St. Charles Ave. However, in addition to these giants and neighborhood micro-krewes, several other walking parades will keep the city busy on Fat Tuesday.


Today in NOLA: 2.08.16


Lundi Gras parades are rolling today, but the entire City is awash in Carnival events. At 3p.m. the Riverwalk will host another Lundi Gras party where the King of Rex and his royal court will officially arrive in vintage railroad cars via Spanish Plaza. Plus, there's music, lots of music. On this date in 1724, former Louisiana governor Bienville was recalled to France in disgrace. Now, more ideas on things to do this Lundi Gras. 


Beyonce Drops NOLA Video


Beyoncé dropped a surprise video on Saturday (2.06) afternoon. Just in time for Mardi Gras, “Formation” is all about New Orleans. The video opens with a NOPD cruiser sinking into flood waters. From there, the audience catches glimpses of second lines, shotgun houses, the Claiborne Overpass, drum majors, and its of the Queen Bey.


Towing the Fine


Carnival is all about doin’ whatcha wanna’ unless whatcha wanna involves peeing on the street or parking on many streets. The former will land you lockup and the latter will land your car in the impound. If your car does wind up towed or even booted, here are some helpful hints.


R.I.P. Billy Gruber


New Orleans lost one her greats on Thursday (2.04) evening. Billy Gruber, the chef behind Liuzza’s By The Track and iconic local personality, died at the age of 69-years-old.
