Blood Drive, Second Lines Planned in Wake of Mother's Day Shooting
On Thursday, Mayor Mitch called on New Orleans to say "Enough is enough" to violence in the wake of Sunday's horrific Mother's Day second line shooting. But we know that for locals, it's also about what we do in response to tough times that counts. As ever, citizens aren't letting the violence stop them from rolling up their sleeves and dancing in the streets at three events over the next few weeks.

All morning, make groceries at the Riverbend at this week's Uptown Farmers Market. Later on, see a free film screening from DJ Soul Sister, or brush up on your city's history at Octavia Books. On this day in 1803, The Louisiana Purchase Treaty was signed. Now, more to do this Tuesday.

Once you finish shopping at the Farmer’s Market, rest up for a night full of author events, live music, and more going on all over the city. Happy Birthday to Wild Magnolias Big Chief Bo Dollis Jr., birth name “Gerald Dollis,” born on this day in 1981. Now, more to do this Tuesday.
Today in New Orleans 1.1.13
Once you’ve finished eating your cabbage and black eyed peas, celebrate the New Year with a free concert in Jackson Square, comedy, and live music from St. Claude to Oak Street. On this day in 1935, Tulane’s Green Wave defeated Temple in the first Sugar Bowl. Now, more to do this Tuesday.
Today's Events: 12.28.11
Tonight, the City continues to roll towards New Year's Eve and Carnival season with ??? and a lot of brass. Historically speaking, there was a lot of brass on display in 1862, when Union troops had the gall to burn the old state capitol to the ground. It would be nearly 70 years to the day before Huey P. Long began construction on our current HQ, a building befitting the state. However, let's go back to the future for some events tonight.
