This weekend is the busiest fest weekend of the year, but you may not have heard of some of the festivals taking place across the city. The cultural nooks being celebrated range from literature to crawfish to Black music to French culture to…mud? Yes, it’s all happening - click here for our mini guide to this weekend’s best festival action!
We also went the hole way checking out a new piercing studio on Magazine Street and we made a much-needed update to our new section with a look at new openings and spring menus that you can find on the city’s ever-changing culinary landscape.
All of this, plus your regular seven-day guide to the city’s daytime and cultural events, with select theater and arts listings, too. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend and we’ll see you next time. Much love,
