Details & Routes for St. Patrick's Day Festivities



If Carnival came and went too fast for you, you're in luck. St. Patrick's Day provides a mini-season of parades and partying over thenext two weeks. In the Quarter, Jim Monaghan’s St. Patrick’s Day rolls for the 33rd time. Uptown, expect a raucous time at the Irish Channel Parade, and the Downtown Irish Club Parade, an old school classic will cap it off. Plus, there will be block parties galore. Details and routes follow.


Parade Planner: Irish Channel St. Patrick's March, Block Parties


St. Patrick's Day doesn't arrive until Monday, but the weekend before the 17th is always filled with green in New Orleans. Today's gaelic get-down is Uptown, with the Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade and a pair of block parties providing the prime festivities. Tonight, St. Joseph's Day is celebrated on the streets in the French Quarter


Today in New Orleans: 3.15.14


Happy St. Paddy’s Day weekend! Once the parades roll through the Irish Channel and the French Quarter, local artists are taking over venues from Tipitina’s to St. Claude. Happy Birthday to Andrew Jackson, born on this day in 1767. Now, more to do this Saturday.

If you haven’t used up all your energy catching cabbage, find another green outfit and hit the streets for St. Patrick’s Day. From Finn McCool’s to the Ninth Ward, New Orleanians are doing it big. Mardi Gras Indians are showing off their feathers and beads for Super Sunday in Central City. On this day in 1999, famous piano man Eddie Bo lost all of his possessions in a fire that destroyed his home. Now, time to plan out your St. Pat’s.

Complete Uptown Guide to St. Patty's Day: Parasol's, Tracey's, Salu, and the Irish House



New Orleans' roots are French and Spanish, but at this time of year, everyone seems more in tune with their Irish heritage. St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching, and The Irish House, Parasol's, and Tracey's are readying themselves for Celtic chaos.


Parasol's Owner Passes, Benefit Planned for Saturday


The Irish Channel mourns the loss of Parasol’s owner John Hogan, who passed away in his sleep on Christmas Eve. The Florida-born transplant married into the city, but Hogan and his wife Thea quickly became neighborhood fixtures after taking over the beloved bar and restaurant. Parasol’s (2533 Constance) is hosting a benefit for the Hogan family on Saturday.

Legendary New Orleans watering hole and po-boy joint Parasol's celebrates it 60th year in business this weekend by showing its appreciation to the city that has helped make the restaurant what it is today.  From 11 am to 10 pm, Friday through Sunday, owners Thea and John Hogan are donating 20 percent of food sales to the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic & Assistance Foundation.

St. Patrick's Day Festivities Across New Orleans



If you're not seeing green in New Orleans this weekend, you're probably not doing something right. Starting early on the morning of Thursday, March 15, and continuing through the bitter end of St. Patrick's Day itself, March 17, there's ample chances to get out in the street, drink some green beer and celebrate St. Patrick's Day as only New Orleanians have the livers to do.


Today's Events: 3.15.12


Today, Parasol's welcomes St. Patrick's Day a couple of days early to the Irish Channel, The Poetry Brothel gets up close at Allways Lounge, Room 220 hosts a dynamic local lit duo at Antenna Gallery and the LPO rolls into First Baptist Church. On this day, Andrew Jackson, the namesake of our city's most prominent Square, and the Old Hickory that lead the pirates and privates to victory in the War of 1812, would've been 245 years old and, just before that War of 1812 win, La. Gov. William C.C. Claiborne ordered Jean Lafitte's pirates of Barataria to disband (1813). Good thing he didn't. Now back to today:
