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. After wowing us last week, Domenica finishes up the month of May with an amazing menu: Monica’s vegetable shakshouka with farm eggs and garlic grilled ciabatta, hand-rolled cavatelli pasta with almonds, Mauthe’s cream and Bill Ryals’ pork shoulder, sweet corn custard with Pete & Clara’s pickled shrimp and spring onion salad, Chilton County peach torta with blueberries and salted caramel, and honeydew aqua fresca. Swing by the market this Tuesday and pick up lunch, or dinner!
Good Music Tonight!
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.) from 8:00 to 11:00 pm...Have a fancy cocktail and listen to the New Orleans Guitar Masters with Phil DeGruy, Jimmy Robinson, John Rankin, and Cranston Clements! Brick DuBois, visiting New Orleans for the first time, will play from 8 to 8:30, then the NOGM will take over - 6 string guitars, 7 string guitars, 12 string guitars, and Phil's own 13 or 19 or whatever string guitarp, and they're not afraid to use 'em. There's no cover, but don't forget to tip the band!
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 - come hungry for delicious pizza, pasta, salads and more!!
There's some fun on Frenchmen tonight too over at d.b.a. (618 Frenchmen) with the Treme Brass Band at 9:00 pm - there's a $5 cover, but that's practically free!
Right down the street the Spotted Cat (623 Frenchmen) has a triple header with no cover - Andy Forest at 4:00 pm, Aurora Nealand and the Royal Roses 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!!
