Today in New Orleans 4.20.13


The weekend is jam packed with crawfish, music, and beer, from Tulane to Mardi Gras World. Gear up for a Spring Brake Yrself race this evening, plus a free festival in Mid City’s beautiful Fortier Park. On this day in 1877, President Rutherford B. Hayes effectively ended Reconstruction in the state when he withdrew federal troops from Louisiana. Now, more to do this Saturday. 


Spring Brake Yrself: Alley Cat Bike Race


Biking is not only a great way to experience the city’s surroundings, but also learn those cool nooks and crannies, back ways and shortcuts not accessible to motorized commuters. Combining a bike race with scavenger hunt, the Yeah You Ride Alley Cat race is a test of city knowledge and directional dexterity in a race against time.
