Freret Street Festival

Well, it’s that time of year again. Saturday is the 10th Annual Freret Street Festival and Homeownership Resource Fair. Awesome. Last year was a really good time in spite of the fact that it was rather small. Good food (especially since Mrs. Dunbar has a booth). And as the adorable Kate from Neighborhood Housing Authority of New Orleans was telling me the other day, the bands this year are numerous and great. I’ve been picking out what stages I need to be at and when so I can make up a little jazzfest-esc schedule for myself.

You can see the Complete List of Events here including information about the home ownership workshop, the art market, the food court, and the kid’s stage and the kid’s activity tent. I figure since I don’t have kids or walls and I already own a house, the only things I have to do that day are listen to music and eat. You may be thinking, ‘but you left out drinking, Jack!’. But you would be wrong since drinking was implied by the fact that the festival happens on a calendar day.

Last year’s festival was my first time and the offerings were very small compared to this year. (wow, that sounds all dirty). I think this is going to be a hell of a good time so stop by and say hello. Scout and I will probably be out there all day dragging a cooler of beer around and jamming BBQ ribs into my pie-hole. I’m going to rig Scout up to pull the cooler like Max from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.

It starts at 11am and ends at 7pm so come early and drink up. I may put a Metroblog sign out in front of the Shanty if I remember, watch for it, but no promises. A free beer for anyone who can find me. (I think Craig’s the only one who’s seen me in the last 4 months so if you’re looking for the guy in my bio good luck.)

Hope to see you all there.

    Just look for the guy who looks a bit like Dartagnan from the Three Musketeers.

    TBK and I plan on coming over for a bit.

    I gotta get me one of those hats those guys wear.

    I was going for the “everyone that ever tied someone to a railroad track” look. A stove pipe hat and a short black cape might get me a little closer.
