Today in NOLA 8.9.17


Today, learn the art of tarot or show off your movie trivia knowledge. John Mayer plays the arena, while a troupe of performers and storytellers make up Esoterotica. On this day in 1963, Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested in New Orleans following an altercation when he was distributing pro-Cuba leaflets on Canal Street. Now, more to do this Wednesday. 

 

Tarot: Bridging Knowledge and Intuition (New Orleans School for Esoteric Arts, 6PM)

Learn the art of the tarot with the New Orleans School of Esoteric Arts, as they explore the cards of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck. Kicking off the six week series tonight is a three-hour course into the history of tarot and an introduction to the Major Arcana. The course is beginners friendly, but experienced practitioners will be able to further hone their reading abilities. 

 

John Mayer (Smoothie King Center, 7PM)

Former folksy lothario John Mayer will bring his smooth sounds to the arena tonight. The singer/guitarist, known as much for his musical abilities as being a tabloid fixture (dating the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Jessica Simpson), has come out of self-imposed exile with a nationwide tour in support of his most recent album The Search of Everything

 

Esoterotica (Allways Lounge, 7PM)

This month's installment of the long-running Esoterotica series is "Crazy in Love, Mad with Love." Featured storytellers will explore the darker side of love, lust, and attraction. As always, there is no cover. 

 

Action Movie Trivia (Bar Redux, 8PM)

Do you know your Deadpool Ryan Reynolds from your Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds? In what movie did highest-grossing actor of all time Samuel L. Jackson talk about eating a Royale with Cheese? Brush up on your IMDB trivia, as Bywater watering hole Bar Redux teamed up with Lionsgate Films for an epic action movie themed trivia night for The Hitman's Bodyguard, a new movie starring the two action stars. Prizes include promo items from the film plus exclusive access to preview screenings.
