Good Morning Everybody,
Geaux Saints - It's the real deal tonight - let's get those Cheese Heads!!
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 - 2008 - Coppola - Director's Cut Pinot Noir, 2007 - Coppola - Director's Cut - Cinema Blend, 2007 - Coppola - Director's Cut - Dry Creek Zinfandel, 2009 - St Supery - Sauvignon Blanc and the 2008 - Joel Gott - Chardonnay. You can also stop at Clever (right next door) for their "tasting special" - $1 off your first cocktail after attending the free wine tasting and it just happens to be Tapas Thursday too! 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 New Orleans based cellist Helen Gillet. Helen Gillet uses electromagnetic effects, looping and vocal percussion to explore sound as well as the wide range of natural sounds possibly drawn, knocked, rubbed, sensed, bounced, scraped, plucked, and sung out through the acoustic cello - don't miss it!!
Go hang out at City Park this evening for The Thursdays at Twilight Garden Concert Series with the always entertaining Phillip Manuel! 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.
