Downtown Irish Club Parade Marks St. Patrick's Day


Happy St. Patrick's Day, New Orleans! The streets were filled with green over the weekend, but one Club ensures that there's still a reason to celebrate on St. Patrick's feast day, itself. The Downtown Irish Club is set to step off from Bywater's Bud Rip's at 6 p.m., and head for Bourbon St.


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.


St. Patrick's Day Irish Channel Parade Set for Saturday


Once a year, New Orleans’ Irish Channel lives up to its name as the spot to party for St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Parade falls on the Saturday before March 17. Hundreds of men will don suits and distribute flowers to crowds, oftentimes for the price of a peck on the cheek. If the float riders are generous with throws, those on the route could collect a whole meal's worth of catches. 


'Casual' Barstool Purse Pilfer Caught on Camera (VIDEO)


A trio of thieves were feeling lucky on St. Patrick's Day after they made off with a woman's purse at a CBD bar. But the Sunday incident was caught on camera, meaning there might be no pot of gold at the end of these rascals' rainbow. About 1:40 a.m. at a watering hole in the 1000 block of Poydras, the three men engaged the woman in what police describe as a "casual conversation."


Today in New Orleans 3.16.13


Find another green shirt to throw on, or you’ll definitely get pinched. Enjoy block parties, parades, and more to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day weekend. On this day in 1999, local greats Roosevelt Sykes and Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown were inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in Washington, D.C. Now, more to do this beautiful Saturday.

St. Patricks' Day Practice, Ninth Ward Second Line in New Orleans Sunday

Today: St. Patrick's Day, Buku Touch Down in NOLA


Happy St. Patrick's Day! As New Orleans isn't a town that takes partying lightly, there's a full slate of activities across the city to mark this country's day of Irish pride. But along with drinking green beer and flailing for vegetables, we also take a moment to remember the Irish heritage of this town. The immigrants who came to the Irish Channel helped to Americanize the city, and did a lot of the hard work that made our port so vibrant. Click through for details about today's happenings:

St. Patrick's Day Festivities Across New Orleans
