Happy Thursday with a Salu' Wine Dinner, Food Truck Fest and Lots of Music!

Good morning everybody - Happy Thursday!

Thursday Events

Don't miss out on the weekly wine tasting at Cork and Bottle (3700 Orleans ) about 5:00 pm in Mid-City - Taste some amazing wines.  Sip, shop and purchase your favorite wine! You can also head on over to Clever (right next door) for a great cocktail after attending the free wine tasting.  And be sure to stop by the Crescent City Farmer's Market (in the parking lot) and patronize local Louisiana vendors with fresh veggies, seafood and more!

Need a little art, culture and music? You gotta go to the show at the Ogden Southern Museum of Art (925 Camp St.) - better known as Ogden after Hours. The concert kicks off at 6:00 pm as the Ogden presents Seva Venet's Storyville Stringband. Keeping the sounds of New Orleans string band jazz alive, the Storyville Stringband led by guitarist Seva Venet is a New Orleans Traditional Jazz band that performs on strings rather than horns. The music pulls from the same repertoire, rhythms and spirit as the funky down-home sound of a brass band, but without the brass.! Tonight the O BAR's specialty cocktail is the  Saints Sidecar! *Remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!!!


Tonight get some delicious dinner and wine at Salu' (3226 Magazine) - Executive Chef Dustin Brien has prepared a four course menu (plus intermezzo) paired with wines selected by General Manager Greg Thomas that take you along a journey through the Mediterranean. For only $50 (plus tax and gratuity), this meal is sure to be an experience guests won’t forget!

Two dining times are available (6:30 p.m. and 8:45 p.m.) with limited seating (30 seats per timeslot), and customers can call the restaurant at 504-371-5809 to make an advance reservation.
