TGIF for real!! I am sooo ready for the weekend!! GEAUX TIGERS and GEAUX SAINTS!!
What's happenin' this Friday night??
If you're looking for a couple of wine tastings after work....head on down to Cork & Bottle (3700 Orleans) at around 5ish for some great wines....then make your way over to Swirl (3143 Ponce de Leon) at about 6 for another round of wine tasting, and check out their tapas bar too for some great food!!
After you get your wine on...you need a place to watch the big Cotton Bowl game...so, check out your favorite haunt and plan on doing some celebrating with some music afterwards. (or during the game!)
There's lots of good music going on tonight!!
Head over to the Carousel Lounge at the Hotel Monteleone with John Autin at 9:00...spin around the bar and listen to some great music too!
Head on over to Chickie Wah Wah on Canal for their happy hour with the Pfister Sisters at 5:30, then stay on for the Dave Stryker Quartet at 8:00, and The Ogya Band at 10:00...what a fun way to spend your Friday evening...and don't forget to come hungry cause they got yummy food going on in the kitchen!
d.b.a. (618 Frenchmen) has a great double header tonight..and just heads up, d.b.a is now smoke-free!!! The Hot Club of New Orleans gets revvin' up at 6:00, and be sure to stay on for John "Papa" Gros...he'll get your night funked up!!!
There's another double header over at Rock 'N Bowl (3016 S. Carrollton) with Clockwork Elvis plus Bonerama at 9:30...this is gonna be a great show...and don't forget if you eat an entree next door at Ye Olde College Inn you get a discounted ticket for the concert!!
