This Weekend in New Orleans: Well… What Do We Do Now?

Well – the party’s over. Except, the party is never really over in New Orleans. Got a case of the post-Mardi Gras blues? Don’t worry – there’s still plenty going on to keep you occupied and in the Big Easy spirit. But, hey, if you also just want to catch up on sleep all weekend, we would totally understand.

The New Orleans French Film Festival kicks off tonight at the Prytania Theater. Maybe sitting a dark theater is the perfect post-Mardi Gras action. Liquid Stranger is performing a sold-out show at City Bar in BR on Friday, and the Lower Lair is premiering their series of house parties at the Republic on Saturday.

Need to eat your hangover away? The Shimeno ramen popup at Miel Brewery on Sunday. should do the trick. 

Check out these & all our other picks from this weekend in New Orleans:
