Good Morning Everybody,
Here's the Thursday fun stuff going on today!!
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!
It's a big show at the Ogden this evening!! The Ogden Southern Museum of Art better known as Ogden after Hours starts up at 6:00 pm with the REBIRTH Brass Band and Cheeky Blakk!! So come on down for some music, culture, fun and the "O" bar will be serving some yummy Mojitos!! (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 Lars Edegrain and the New Orleans Ragtime Orchestra! 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.
You can help out your four legged friends tonight by simply going out to eat! The Louisiana SPCA's Pause for Dinner is pairing up with highly recognized restaurants from around Greater New Orleans to raise money for animal welfare in our region while attracting patrons and new clients to their business. Participating in this event is SIMPLE- just eat dinner at one of the listed restaurants. Every restaurant is donating 20% of their dinner proceeds to the Louisiana SPCA!
In addition, The George Rodrigue Foundation for the Arts (GRFA) is offering a new Blue Dog print at each participating restaurant for silent auction. The silkscreen print, titled The Three Amigos, is not available to the general public, and is only available to non-profit organizations for fundraising purposes. Proceeds will be divided between the LA/SPCA and GRFA.
