Today in New Orleans: 7.15.12
Today, waiters and bartenders race in the French Quarter, the final event of San Fermin in Neuva Orleans is a brunch and Ernest Hemingway Contest at 12 Bar on Fulton, the Shadowbox Theatre performs its last showing of Red Light Winter, and Creepy Fest comes to a close at Circle Bar. On this day in history, late jazz reeds player Tats Alexander of the Tuxedo Brass Band was born in New Orleans (1898), and Mahalia Jackson was one of four Gosepel music legends to be honored by the U.S. Postal Service with commemorative stamps issued in a ceremony held at the Superdome (1998). Here's the full Sunday menu:
El Pobré de Mi (12 Bar on Fulton, 11:30am) A brunch and 4th Annual Ernest Hemingway Celebration & Talent Contest is the final event of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans (honoring the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain). Vega Tapas Café provides a savory tapas brunch with specialty drinks. At 12:30pm, the Ernest Hemingway Celebration & Talent Contest begins, which includes skit contests, dramatic readings and a Hemingway look-alike contest. No reservation fees or cover charges for either attendees or participants.
Red Light Winter (Shadowbox Theatre, 2:00pm) This is the last performance of the play. As our Jonas Griffin described it, “The play is a love story, but whenever two or more men are gathered around the same woman, love’s nobler intentions are derailed. Red Light Winter is the making and undoing of a doubly unrequited bizarre love triangle” between two college buddies and a prostitute in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
French Market Bartenders and Waiters Race (French Market, 4:00pm) The third annual speed walking race humorously honors the other kind of service men and women… of restaurants and bars. Cash prizes for top three. Before the race at 2:00pm, Tales of the Cocktail and the Southern Food and Beverage Museum hosts a cocktail-making demonstration. From 2:45pm-3:45pm, Gypsy Swing Club will perform French music.
Creepy Fest (Circle Bar, 8:00pm) The punk and metal festival comes to a close with this last concert. Fat Stupid Ugly People, Split Lips, Classhole, Indian Givers, The Suzies and Hot Coke Sex. $5.
