Sink Your Teeth Into the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival

November 10th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Oak Street Po-boy Festival

The Oak Street Po-Boy Festival may be the celebration of a sandwich but make no mistake – the Po-Boy is not just any old sandwich. If New Orleans was a sandwich, that sandwich would be a Po-Boy.

For those not in the know (oh, how I feel sorry for you) a Po-Boy is akin to a submarine sandwich or lobster roll, typically filled with meat or seafood, with the defining characteristic being the New Orleans-style French bread it’s made on: a crisp crusted baguette with a fluffy center. Hungry yet?

Labor Day Weekend
Southern Decadence Festival 2014

August 11th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Southern Decadence Festival 2014The steady approach of Labor Day weekend marks the return of the Southern Decadence Festival – one of the most over-the-top celebrations New Orleans hosts – and that’s saying something!

The Southern Decadence Festival is a huge, annual event held in the French Quarter to celebrate the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender) culture. Routinely attracting 125,000 attendees or more, the event began in 1972 as a going away party and, well, you know how it is with parties: sometimes they’re so good you just don’t want them to stop.

New Orleans’ Dirty Linen Night

July 20th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

New Orleans' Dirty Linen Night 2014 PosterDirty Linen Night is an arts, food, and drink block party held on the second Saturday night of every August on Royal Street in the French Quarter – and if you come looking a bit disheveled, you’ll fit right in!

A direct answer – perhaps even a rebuff – to the Whitney White Linen Night held on Julia Street, held the first Saturday night of every August, Dirty Linen Night is upwards of 40 to 50 Royal Street shop and gallery owners holding their own, opening night/block party. Similar to White Linen Night (which we discussed last post), Dirty Linen Night is a free party held to promote businesses in the Warehouse Arts District of New Orleans – sometimes also called the “Soho of the South.”

Attend Whitney White Linen Night

July 15th, 2014 by Corey A. Edwards

Whitney White Linen Night 2014Whitney White Linen Night, held the first Saturday night every August since 1994, is an opportunity to revive an old, Southern tradition while enjoying excellent food, quenching drink, and fine art.

So what has white linen got to do with August and art?

Well, back before air conditioning, one of the few ways you could really even attempt to stay cool during the summer months, in a subtropical zone like the Gulf Coast, was to don white linen, which reflects the sun’s harsher rays and breathes … a bit. Surely you can picture the stereotypical Southern gentleman in his white suite – Colonel Sanders, for example.

Join In the New Orleans Bastille Day Festivities

New Orleans Bastille Day - The storming of the Bastille in 1789

The 1789 storming of the Bastille

New Orleans’ French connections are never too far from the surface, so it makes sense that there are numerous New Orleans Bastille Day celebrations and traditions – some more serious than others!

For those not familiar with this holiday, Bastille Day is not unlike our own 4th of July: a celebration of liberty.

The Bastille was a prison fortress in Paris that was stormed by over 8,000 French citizens on July 14th, 1789, kicking off the French Revolution. Their goal was the release of hundreds of political prisoners – plus the attainment of arms stored therein.
