Women across the country are on strike today (3.8) as part of a demonstration coinciding with International Women’s Day.

Space Disaster Film Drops Trailer
Today, the trailer for the Warner Bros. film “Geostorm” was released. The disaster flick, shot in New Orleans in late 2014 through early 2015, has long battled to get to the theaters. Plagued by years of reshoots and rescheduled release dates, the Dean Devlin directed film has been subject to rumors that the final product leaves a lot to be desired.

NoDef's Absinthe Day Guide
Ten years ago, the nationwide ban on absinthe was lifted in the United States after almost a century. Given how quickly the anise-flavored herbal spirit has become a staple in cocktails, it's hard to believe that for over 96 years New Orleanians lived without green frappés, drips, and daiquiris. Today (3.5) is National Absinthe Day, so how better to celebrate the spirit's rise from madness-inducing elixir of the bohemian set to the superstar ingredient in cocktails nationwide than with a comprehensive guide to the city's best absinthe-minded offerings. From tours of distilleries and museums to cocktail crawls across the Vieux Carre, read on for NoDef's guide to absinthe in New Orleans.

Today in NOLA: 5.21.16
Festing continues in Mid-City all day, and the evening brings plenty of rawk to town. Plus, a couple gems of the local music scene are gigging. On this day in 1958, segregation of the New Orleans streetcars ended. Now, check out Saturday’s offerings.
Rebel Music (Fest)
In New Orleans, we seem to have a festival for just about everything-almost. Last year, five friends realized that despite New Orleans’ position as the north-most city in the Caribbean, there is no longer a fest for the music and culture. Enter the Roots Reggae Culture Festival which just dropped the lineup for two days of jammin’ in June.
Fit to be Fried
NOLA is not particularly fit, but it could be worse. That is the finding from the American Fitness Institute (AFI) who released their fitness rankings for America’s 50 largest cities today. New Orleans landed in the 50 spot.
