Good Morning Everybody,

More Thursday Events

Don't miss out on the weekly wine tasting at Cork and Bottle (3700 Orleans ) about 5:00 pm in Mid-City and tasting is free.....  And be sure to stop by the Crescent City Farmer's Market and patronize local Louisiana vendors with fresh veggies, seafood and more! 


It's a beautiful night to hang out at City Park and enjoy Tricia Boutte and Paul Longstreth for the Twilight Garden Concert Series! Tricia Boutte and Paul Longstreth have been working on-stage together for almost twenty years. First paired with Bob French and the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, this New Orleans duo has since toured worldwide with regular appearances in both New Orleans and all over Norway. Their songs, both originals and standards, spans almost the entirety of New Orleans music, from Ragtime and Traditional Jazz, to Rock and Roll, R&B, and Gospel. This will be Ms. Boutte's first appearance in what will be her only New Orleans tour this year!" The 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.

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. Tonight the Ogden has A Classical Night with Andre Bohren.  A change of pace for this drummer of the rock band Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. Bohren -- a classically trained pianist -- will share his talent on the piano with a number of pieces.  Be sure to head on over to the bar for this month's signature drink - The Spring Fling - *Remember with your Ogden membership all of these excellent concerts are FREE!!!
