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.  This month the Market welcomes Chris Gerica, daughter of Pete and Clara Gerica, one of their beloved fisher families at market, to the GPS tent. She's back this week with they'll have crabmeat and spring mix salad, black drum with green beans and dirty rice, shrimp stew, lemonade to wash it all down, and snickerdoodles and white chocolate chip cookies. They'll also have stuffed crabs packaged to go, so you don't have to worry about dinner either!

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, Meschiya Lake & The Little Big Horns at 6:00 pm, and top off the evening with Aurora and the Royal Roses at 10:00 pm!
