Good morning 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. 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 boiled shrimp salad with Italian dressing, fresh caught seabream (unless her Dad catches something else) or stuffed crab with sautéed squash and zucchini or potato salad, boiled shrimp by the pound, stuffed crabs packaged to go, blondies, brownies and blueberry lemonade.. Swing by the market this Tuesday and pick up lunch, or dinner!
Head on over to the Ashe Cultural Center (1712 Oretha Castle Haley) and join the New Orleans Loving Festival for a FREE screening of acclaimed documentary THE LOVING STORY, co-presented by the New Orleans Film Society, HBO, Press Street, and the Charitable Film Network. Arrive early for a 6:30 p.m. reception. The screening will start at 7:00 p.m., and there will be a short discussion following the screening with a panel of speakers including Hamilton Simons-Jones, Annette Hollowell, and others.
Good Music Tonight!
And there's a great evening on the Avenue, because 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 sounds of John Rankin and Todd Duke!
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!
