This Thursday, explore new works at the Ogden or celebrate the variety entertainment industry with the Snake Oil Fest. Jonathan Boogie Long, one of Big Easy's best, will be playing Tip's. And thinking of missing the W's screening of Pretty Woman? Big mistake, huge. According to official New Orleans vital records, a certain Marie Glapion Laveau died on this day in 1881, aged 98. However, the mystery of the true outcome of the powerful voodoodienne, Marie Laveau, lives on…

Dive In Movie Night (W New Orleans, 6:30PM)

Tonight, the classic rom-com Pretty Woman will be screened. Specialty theme cocktails, complimentary popcorn, and some snacks will also be offered.
