LA-SPCA: Let Your Dog Celebrate Barkus Not NYE


Rule number one of fireworks is “Don’t blow your fingers off like a certain NFL player.” The second standard is that your pets do not like pyrotechnic displays. Dogs and cats have far better hearing than humans and those airborne booms do not go over well with them. The Louisiana Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (L-SPCA) has issued a reminder that dogs are frightened by fireworks and often run away on the Fourth as well as some pointers to keep Rex happy.


Man Arrested After Celebrating NYE with AK-47


Some Southerners like to celebrate New Year’s Eve by shooting guns. However, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) would rather that you keep those celebrations at the range or a hunting camp. On Wednesday (12.31), police arrested Willie Nguyen for Illegal Use of a Weapon.


Today in NOLA: 12.31.14


It's New Years Eve! Ring it in with family, fireworks by the river or a late night show. With a dense variety of NYE parties on the horizon, New Orleans is sure to be popping off (and we're not just talking champagne.) Expect crowds amidst your midnight reveling. At the Joy Theater, the New Mastersounds play the late set, with Dumpstaphunk to ring in the new year. Galactic is at Tipitina's for the 12th year running. In the Den, DJ Jubilee sets things off. House of Blues and One Eyed Jacks present their renditions of disco. On this day in 1970, New Years Eve brought the Allman Brothers to the city to perform with Dr. John the Night Tripper at A Warehouse. Now, more details on tonight's ball dropping show.
