TGIT with Vino, Chris Thomas King and More!

Good Morning Everybody - lots of good stuff going on!!

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.  So, come sip, shop and pick up your favorite wine or liquor! You can also stop at Clever (right next door) for some happy hour specials after attending the free wine tasting.  And be sure to stop by the Crescent City Farmer's Market (right outside the door) 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  Southern Art (925 Camp St.) -better known as Ogden after Hours.  The concert starts up at 6:00 pm with Chris Thomas King.  King started his own independent production company and record label, 21st Century Blues. Soon after he found success as a film composer and actor. Winning three Grammy Awards by 2003 and several Country music CMA awards.  He has developed a singular sound and style that transcends his blues roots from his years of performing before loyal fans at packed clubs, major festivals, theaters and juke joints.  As an actor King has a role in the HBO series "Treme" and starred in the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou"!  Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature cocktail the - O'Margarita!  Remember if you're a member of the Ogden you always get in free!
