A couple of highlights on the calendar for March.
March 7: Gambit Food Revue. Cristina and I will be attending this event which highlights the food that Ian McNulty has reviewed in the last year for the paper. Over 30 restaurants will be serving samples from their kitchens.
March 9: A Streetcar Named Desire will be screened outdoors in NOMA’s Sculpture Garden. Cristina and I both attended a screening at the Saenger Theater before Katrina. We didn’t know each other then.
March 10: Oyster Jubilee. While we can’t make it, you can head down to the Quarter and see the construction of the “Longest Oyster Po-boy”. Not sure if you get to help deconstruct it.
March 16 and 30: Starlight Racing. I’ve never actually been to the fairgrounds outside of Jazz Fest. Any betting tips?
March 24: Hogs for the Cause. Let me get this straight: I can help children with brain cancer by eating pork? I’m in.
And of course, there is the real March Madness which will end in New Orleans this year.
