A Tuesday w/Veggies, a Wine Tasting & Lots of Music!

Good morning everybody and happy Tuesday!

Farmer's Market!

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 is back with another equally impressive menu:  and-rolled fusilli pasta with spring pea and mint pesto, grilled pizzas with black drum baby greens and green garlic aioli, burrata mozzarella with fava bean salad, blueberry and Creole cream cheese cakes, and peach, blueberry, basil and mint aqua fresca. Swing by the market this Tuesday and pick up lunch, or dinner!

Wine Tasting

The New Orleans Wine and Food Experience is right around the corner so kick off the week with a wine tasting...Head on over to Dijon (1379 Annunciation) from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and meet Oregon winemaker, Ray Walsh of Capitello Wines and sample his collection of top-notch wines and enjoy an assortment of fine cheeses - And, best of all, the tasting is FREE!

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.)...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 - 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!!
