Good morning everybody and happy Tuesday!!
You can get your day started off right with a trip to the Farmer's Market!!! Visit the Crescent City's Farmer's Market at University Square (200 Broadway) from 9:00 to 1:00 pm and Greg and Mary Sonnier of The Uptowner is serving up lunch under the Green Plate Special Tent. Past weekes have served up such yummy dishes as vegetarian black bean soup, succotash, chicken fajita salad, jalapeno cornbread and Mary's carrot cake cupcakes - can't wait to see what's in store for this week!
Good Music Tonight!
Jazz @ the Sandbar ( The Cove, Founders Road, UNO Lakefront Campus) continues as Banu Gibson joins the UNO Hot Club (directed by Matt Bell) and the Traditional Jazz Ensemble (directed by Matt Perrine) in the penultimate concert. The performance begins at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $5 for the general public and free to the UNO community.
And there's a great evening on the Avenue....Cause it's another lovely southern night for porch sitting and music over at the The Columns (3811 St. Charles Ave.)...Have a fancy cocktail and listen to the guitar stylings of John Rankin!
Head on over to Mid-City and to Chickie Wah Wah (2828 Canal)! They've got the Sweet Olive String Band at 5:00 pm, and be sure to stay on for Tommy Malone on guitar and Bill Malchow on piano at 8:00 pm (Tickets $8) - come hungry for delicious pizza, pasta, salads and more!!
Right down the street the Spotted Cat (623 Frenchmen) has a double header with no cover - Andy Forest at 4:00 pm, Smokin' Time Jazz Club at 6:00 pm, and top off the evening with Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns at 10:00 pm!
End your night over at the Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Street...with the Grammy Award winning REBIRTH Brass Band they come on around 10:30ish - there's a cover, but you'll be glad you paid and stayed up late!!
