Spring is on its way to New Orleans. The damp cold is slipping away and the sticky heat is slowly trickling in. It’s a quick and energetic spring before the summertime lulls us into the heat-induced coma of the slow season.
But for now, there’s still tons of fun events going on around the city. Popular game show Dancing with the Stars brings their live tour to the Saenger Theater tonight. Tomorrow, the Pelicans play a home game, and NOLA Brewing celebrates eleven years of beer.
If you’re in need of some festival season wear, check out the Festival Market at the Drifter on Saturday. And on Sunday, the wellness group MindTravel stops by City Park to host a meditative SilentWalk journey.
Check out these & all our other picks from this weekend in New Orleans:

Pretend it’s happy hour and you and I are sitting at the bar. I look amazing and, I agree with you, much thinner in person. You look good, too. Maybe
Pretend it’s happy hour and you and I are sitting at the bar. I look amazing and, I agree with you, much thinner in person. You look good, too. Maybe it’s the candlelight maybe it’s the booze. Either way, let’s just go with it. Keep this all between you and me, and do me a favor? Don’t judge me if I name drop just a little.
Television personality Ross Mathews likes telling stories. And with his Hollywood experience – from interning behind the scenes at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to judging RuPaul’s Drag Race – he has a lot to talk about.
In Name Drop, Ross dishes about moments where he goes from soaring to crashing, like that time he was invited by Barbara Walters to host The View – only to arrive on set and discover she had no idea who he was; his Christmas with the Kardashians, which should be its own national holiday; and his talk with Omarosa on Celebrity Big Brother, which, as it turns out, was just the tip of the iceberg.
Filled with tales ranging from the horrifying to the hilarious – and with just the right “Rossipies” and cocktails to go along with them – Name Drop is every pop culture lover’s dream come true.
And now, Name Drop is more even more than a book – it’s an international tour where Ross brings these stories to life on stage, plays games with the audience and so much more.

MindTravel SilentWalk comes to New Orlean's City Park for one night only on Sunday, March 8th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Explore your city in a whole new way and allow yourself
MindTravel SilentWalk comes to New Orlean’s City Park for one night only on Sunday, March 8th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
Explore your city in a whole new way and allow yourself to be carried away by a deep feeling of freedom and connection with MindTravel SilentWalk. This music-driven experience is a new way to practice walking meditation while fostering a greater connection to the world around us, to each other and to yourself.
This magical SilentWalk journey is led by MindTravel creator and composer, Murray Hidary as part of the 70-City MindTravel SilentHike Tour Across North America in 2020.
This is a FREE experience and MindTravel accepts donations from attendees onsite and online after the experience. You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to The MindTravel Foundation or to purchase MindTravel Music to help support our continued commitment to bringing free and low-cost music experiences to communities across the globe. Find out more about The MindTravel Foundation below.
ABOUT THE MINDTRAVEL SILENTWALK EXPERIENCE
Over the course of the MindTravel SilentWalk experience, you’ll join other MindTravel ers exploring the world’s most beautiful gardens, parks and trails, or beaches while guided by MindTravel music delivered through MindTravel headphones that are provided onsite. The evocative, improvisational piano music ignites freedom and expansiveness that amplifies the healing and inspirational power of being surrounded by beauty.
After a short introduction and intention-setting, the group will venture forth on a guided journey through the lush foliage of New Orleans City Park for a contemplative and powerful creative journey–all while enveloped in the transcendent sounds of the beautiful, original MindTravel compositions.
MindTravel will provide the wireless headphones.
“…as I met with the MindTravel group and put on headphones to embark on a two-hour tour of the Getty galleries, grounds and gardens while listening to original music and a guided visit — not so much of the paintings but of my inner life — being rocked pretty much sums up what happened.” -Martha McCully, The Los Angeles Times
More About MindTravel
Music is a catalyst for transformation, clarity, connection and purpose. And music is at the core of MindTravel , an immersive music experience created by Murray Hidary. Hidary, a composer, pianist, visual artist, tech pioneer, entrepreneur and physics lover, created MindTravel in 2014 after finding that music helped him heal after the tragic death of his sister. Now, he is on a mission to share music’s healing power with others and make it the centerpiece of a multi-sensory meditative journey.
” MindTravel is an experience like no other. Imagine a concert pianist improvising beautiful, peaceful music with imagery in the background that matches the beauty of the music — combined, it is almost meditative or trancelike.” – Jason Wachob, Founder of mindbodygreen
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions about the event.

Founded by composer and musician Murray Hidary, the foundation creates healing and transformative music experiences for underserved and at-risk populations including seniors, youth, homeless, police, and veterans.
