Events! The Weekend of July 27th – 29th

Another weekend is upon us, which means another weekend of events for all New Orleanians! What to do, where to go and what to see will be covered in this triple threat selection for the final few days of July 2018!

Sorry to Bother You – Prytania Theatre – Starts July 27th 

After a most successful FilmTopia Fest, The Prytania falls back into their week-long theatrical routine, with one of the most eclectic and buzz-worthy movies of the year, Sorry to Bother You. This is a film designed to be as incendiary as classics like Network, but with an observational/suspicious eye and cynical/curious soul towards authority and power. Highly recommended for laughs and thought!

Dine & Dance with the Victory Swing Orchestra – WWII Museum July 28th 

Billed as a one of a kind throwback to the fanciful and celebratory champagne and swing days of post-war America, where elation overcame exhaustion, The WWII Museum has established this evening as one for music, for food and for dance. Get “in the mood” with the great big bands of the era!

Women Empowerment Sip & Shop – 2901 General Degaulle Dr. – July 29th 

Free drinks, giveaways, food. Sponsored by Bougie not Bougie and featuring the Lace of Love Lingerie Company, this get-together is meant to bring together everyone, no matter gender, in support of each other’s quirks and tastes. Come on out to Algiers and feel the spirit of community!

As always, check out our Things to Do section for a wide variety of ideas on how to spend your weekend in this great city!Empowerment

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
