Today's Events: 5.31.11


May 31, when the New Orleans Mint closed (1861), when John Harvey Kellogg patented "flaked cereal" (1894), the first NAACP conference (1909), the release of the first jazz record, Dark Town Strutters Ball (1917), when the Supreme Court ordered school integration "with all deliberate speed" (1955), when the Saints sold for $70,204,000 (1985), when Walt Whitman (1819) and Clint Eastwood (1930) were born, and when WWII icon Rosie Will Monroe, aka Rosie the Riveter, died (1997). Quite the laudable list, to say the least…lest us not let down:

 

4:00PM: Dr. William Mackintosh- talkin' tragedy (Octavia Books)

5:30PM: NOLA LOCAVORES- before 30 days of eating only local, one must prepare in the local way: party (Zeitgeist)

6:00PM: Cooling Your Home Efficiently- GIY Workshop (Green Building Resource Center)

7:00PM: Yvonne Perret- (Reading about) Yat Literary Cuisine (East Bank Regional Library) 

7:30PM: The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls- Indigo Girls meets Flight of the Conchords meet Doug Funny's Mr. Bone (Zeitgeist)

8:30PM: Stupid Time Machine- Opens with an Awkward Headbutt (Howlin' Wolf)

 

*And the weekly Tuesday typicals: Rebirth at Maple Leaf, Cotton Mouth Kings at d.b.a., Crescent City Market at Broadway, The Tom Paines at Circle Bar, Meschiya at Spotted Cat, Euclid Trivia at Hi-Ho, and the printshop's open shop at Nowe Miasto.

 

PS- It's also World No Tobacco day, so pas de fumer!
