Thursday with Wine, Concerts and Music Everywhere!

Good Morning Everybody,

Here's some Thursday fun stuff!!

Thursday Events

Don't miss out on the weekly wine tasting at Cork and Bottle (3700 Orleans ) about 5:00 pm in Mid-City and the tasting is free with some great choices to taste and purchase - 2009 Kendall Jackson- Chardonnay, 2009 Four Vines- "Naked" Chardonnay, 2008- Estancia- Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2009 Mark West Pinot Noir!  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 more art, culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art (925 Camp St.) - better known as Ogden after Hours.  The concert starts up at 6:00 pm with Camile Baudoin (The Radiators) on guitars along with David Doucet (Beausoleil) on guitars and ukulele, and Harry Hardin (Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes) on violin. They play what we call Living Room Music, the songs Camile sang and played with his family when he was growing up, along with some originals and instrumentals - don't miss it!!
