GEAUX TIGERS - BEAT BAMA!!!
Okay, if you're lucky enough to have off work today - there's good stuff going on all day long!!!
The Piazza d'Italia (300 Poydras St.) will host a "Boudin vs. Barbecue Tailgate" from 11 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Afterward we can all reflect on the wisdom of hashing out a decades-old football rivalry by arming the fans with knives and hot surfaces. Admission varies from $2 to $8 depending on how hungry and thirsty you are!!
Join thousands of Tiger fans near the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for a pre-game day warm-up Tiger Block Party on the 700 Block of S. Rampart between Julia/Girod Street. The Big Game Bash, featuring local DJs (DJ Jive, DJ Ronnie Roux, Beverly Skillz) and the Chee Weez, starts up at 10 a.m. General admission tix are $25, and VIP tix are $45 and includes 5 food and drink tickets...or just hang out on the periphery and bring your own beer (it IS New Orleans)!!!
Lucy's (701 Tchoupitoulas) is having their huge block party!! They project the game onto the side of the building next door and take over the entire street. They're also opening up their loft space upstairs with its own projector screen and offering Alabama Slammers and LS-Shooters. Head down early the fun starts up at 11:00 am!!!
Maison (508 Frenchmen) will be hosting a massive party for the BCS Championship game starting up at 5:00 pm. They'll be showing the game on 10 large flatscreens around the building as well as a giant projector screen. There will be no cover but they do have prime sections available for reservation. If you would like to reserve a section please holla at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the game we will have live music until the wee hours!
