Today in NOLA 8.7.17

Today, learn about how to ferment your way to better health. The New Movement will host a no-holds-barred comedy competition. Instant Opus returns to the Hi-Ho, while Helen Gillet will delight in the Bacchanal backyard. On this day in 1927, the infamous Ursuline Nuns (aka The Casket Girls) arrived in New Orleans. Now, more to do this Monday. 


DIY Fermented Foods (Rosalie Apothecary, 7PM)

The first class in Rosalie Apothocary’s DIY food series is focused on fermented beverages like kombucha, water kefir, and jun. These tonics offer gut-healthy bacteria that enhances digestion, mood, and all matters of health. The class will cover how to make and flavor these beverages, and all participants will leave with their choice of a jar of brewed tea and scoby or water and grains. Sliding scale $20-35, plus $5 for materials.


Helen Gillet (Bacchanal, 7:30PM)

Enjoy the sounds of New Orleans with a glass of wine in Bacchanal's famed backyard. Cellist Helen Gillet is known for her intriguing, intra-genre exploration and her innovative use of electronic looping. The resulting sound is simultaneously soothing and exhilarating. Although Gillet’s lyrics and upbringing span multiple nations, her sound is all NOLA.
