Today in NOLA: 12.24.14


Christmas Eve, y'all! Unlike other cities, NOLA’s Noel is known for its late night Reveillon dinners. Those staying in the Crescent City for the holiday can take part on the Creole Christmas tradition before taking the family to midnight mass at St. Louis Cathedral. If you’re looking for something secular, Siberia is offering an all-star DJ set. On this day in 1989, New Orleans’ first black mayor, Ernest “Dutch” Morial, passed away. Now, more to do this Christmas Eve.
