Today in New Orleans 2.06.14


A quartet of jazz legends is coming together tonight at the Civic Theatre. At House of Blues, Kermit Ruffins and Dr. John are performing for a benefit to help one of the venue’s sound engineers with steep medical expenses. Macbeth is running in the Marigny, and local food writer Michael Murphy is signing copies of his culinary guidebook Eat Dat on Octavia Street. On this day in 1682, LaSalle began his trek down the Mississippi River. Now, more to do this Thursday.
