The market is right next door to the Spotted Cat (623 Frenchmen) and runs Thursdays through Sundays from 7:00 pm to 1:00 am (yes, 1:00 am - for all you late night shopping owls!!) Tonight's going to be a great evening for music and shopping!
Go hang out at City Park this evening and enjoy music from Bobby Cure and The Poppa Stoppas for the Thursdays at Twilight Garden Concert Series! Come on down for a rocking good evening as you travel back in time with Bobby Cure to the Doo-Wop days of the 1950's when the Moon was Blue, and the question of the day was, "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?" Don't miss it! Gates open up at 5:00 pm and the performance starts at 6:00 pm in the City Park Botanical Garden Pavilion of the Two Sisters...There is an admission charge, but hey, it's helping the Park out...$10 for adults and $3 for children (it was $3 last year :)
