Today in New Orleans: 2.1.14


Tonight, the Reese Johanson Collective presents their rock opera, a cabaret theater experience with complimentary Italian dinner. House of Blues is celebrating 20 years, and the Pelicans are playing the Bulls at the New Orleans Arena. On this day in 1929, 38 year-old Ada LeBoeuf was the first woman hanged for murder in Louisiana. LeBoeuf was executed for conspiring to murder her husband. On a lighter note, read on for more to do this Saturday.
