Good Morning Everybody,
Here's the Thursday fun stuff going on today!!
This evening is the Royal Street Stroll sponsored by Rouses the fun starts up at 5:30pm and goes until 8:30pm at the 300 Royal Street, The Wine and Food Experience Event brings together New Orleans' greatest gifts: rare antiques, fine art, live jazz and stunning historic architecture with the world's outstanding wines. Shop the enchanting galleries of Royal Street while experiencing wine offerings at each stop, as live jazz music fills the air. As always, the Krewe of Cork will parade down Royal Street to add to the fun!
At the event, in exchange for your ticket, you will receive a 2010 Wine Glass & Wristband that allows you receive wine & food offerings. Tickets are $75 per person in advance ($90 on-site), available at NOWFE....If you're poor like me and can't afford the wristband...be sure to head down anyway and support the shops and establishments on Royal this evening...it's a fun event!!!
Looking for some free wine to taste?? Stop by Cork and Bottle around 5:00 pm in Mid-City, and be sure to stop by the Crescent City Farmer's Market and patronize local Louisiana vendors with fresh veggies, seafood and more!
Need a little culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art better known as Ogden after Hours. The concert starts up at 6:00 pm. with Jazz prodigy Jeremy Marx and his Trio....so come on down for some music, culture and fun! (remember if you get down there early - go grab a cocktail at the Circle Bar on Lee's Circle...one of the best happy hours in town!)
Go hang out at City Park this evening for The Thursdays at Twilight Garden Concert Series with Don Vappie, banjo player extraordinaire! The gates open up at 5:00 pm and the performance starts at 6:00 pm in the City Park Botanical Garden Pavilion of the Two Sisters...There is an admission charge, but hey, it's helping the Park out..so....it's a good thing...$8 for adults and $3 for children.

Free crawfish is happenin' this evening at Maison Frenchmen on Frenchmen Street (of course) tonight at 7:00 pm! Bar patrons can load up on crawfish and stay on for the brass band beat of the Young Fellaz at 10 pm.
And last on my list of fun things to do this Thursday is a super fun evening at the Mother-in Law Lounge on 1500 N. Claiborne with Guitar Slim, Jr. and friends from 7:00 to 10:00 pm....For only $5.00 you're gonna some amazing BBQ, Antoinette K-Doe's famous red beans (and let me tell you they are YUMMY!!!)
