Good Morning Everybody,
Geaux Saints!! It's the last pre-season game - it's gonna be the real deal next week!!!
Here's some Thursday fun stuff to get you going this evening!!
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 - 2007- AOC- Bordeaux Blanc, 2009- AOC- Macon-Villages, 2008- AOC- Bourgogne 2006- AOC - Bordeaux Superieur, and a 2008 - AOC - Cotes du Rhone. 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 Seth Walker. Seth grew up in rural North Carolina surrounded by a musical, artistic family which has lent itself to Seth’s natural ability to entertain audiences with his music and the ease with which he performs. - don't miss it!!
Go hang out at City Park this evening for The Thursdays at Twilight Garden Concert Series with the always entertaining Phil Melancon! 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.
