Recommendation by Lemi

Thanks to Lafayette Square, you don’t have to wait for Sunday or Thursday. “Wednesday at the Square” is a series of free concerts in the summer at the square. The line-up highlights local Louisiana talent and award-winning acts over 12 weeks. Locals and tourists of all ages kick back on the green lawns for a midweek pick-me-up. Come fall, the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival rolls around. The same organization that produces JazzFest brings the magic to Lafayette Square. Blues comes from Mississippi, but the influence is undeniable in Jazz music. Another thing from the Deep South to enjoy at the festival: barbecue. Ribs, pulled pork, brisket, are just a little taste of what’s available. Check out their food stalls for a quick snack. All profits from food and drink sales go to a good cause: community service projects by the Youth Leadership Council.
