Happy Thursday w/some Hellbenders, String Beans and Old 97's!

Good Morning Everybody - lots of good stuff going on!!

Thursday Events

Don't miss out on the weekly wine tasting at Cork and Bottle (3700 Orleans) about 5:00 pm in Mid-City - Taste some amazing wines.  So, come sip, shop and pick up your favorite wine or liquor! 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 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 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 Louisiana Hellbenders, Louisiana Hellbenders was formed after Hurricane Katrina ripped things up in New Orleans. In the midst of rebuilding our homes and the city it seemed like a perfect time to come together, meet some new people and play some ol' time rockin' roots music to put a few smiles on people's faces. And head on over to the bar for this month's signature cocktail the "French 75 - O my!" Champagne, gin, simple syrup & lemon juice.   Remember if you're a member of the Ogden you always get in free! 

*(Oh, and I  can finally say again...if you get there a little early head by the Circle Bar right around the corner on Lee's Circle...Their big grand opening is tomorrow, but perhaps they'll be open today - worth a shot anyway.)

Some More Thursday Night Music

There's lots of fun going on over at Chickie Wah Wah (2828 Canal) tonight!  Come on over early for Happy Hour with Electric Yat String Quartet at 5:30 pm, and stay on 'til 8:00 for the Creole String Beans - they'll be playing every Thursday evening this month!!  Make sure you come hungry for some yummy Garage Pizza!!

It's a lovely evening for some winter cocktails and Latin music over at the the Columns Hotel (3811 St. Charles) this evening.  Enjoy the sounds of Fredy Omar at 8:00 pm.
