New Orleans Plans a “Boycott Bowl” for Saints Fans

Move over Super Bowl, Saints fans aren’t particularly interested this year.

Instead, many are hoping for a parade for the Saints or planning other activities for Feb 3 instead. For those of you who haven’t decided what to do, we suggest heading over to Fulton Street for the Boycott Bowl.

The event costs $10 for regular entry and $50 for VIP entry, with the VIP lounge being at Apres Lounge. All proceeds will benefit the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission. So far, they’ve gathered quite the line-up, including:

  • CHOPPA (with a “Choppa Style” dance contest)
  • Shamarr Allen & the Underdawgs
  • Partners N Crime and the Big EZ Band
  • Rockin Doopsie
  • Fred! from Cowboy Mouth
  • The Vettes
  • Ricky B
  • Flow Tribe
  • Khris Royal & Dark Matter
  • Dash Rip Rock
  • Grammy nominee 5th Ward Weebie

Other details for the festival are still evolving, but that hasn’t stopped 13,000 people from saying they’re going, and another 54,000 from saying they’re interested. You can view the event’s Facebook page and find where to get tickets here.
