Well it's that time for the New Orleans Modern Drunkards to share what we believe with be the Top 5 events where you can not only find a great drink but also be entertained by some of the best New Orleans has to offer this week.
So during the week of 12/15/09 - 12/22/09 here it is:
#5) Walter "Wolfman" Washington & the Roadmasters playing at D.B.A. at 10pm on Wednesday, December 16th.
#4) Jason Marsalis' Vibes Quartet playing at Snug Harbor with two shows at 8pm & 10pm on Wednesday, December 16th.
#3) Kermit Ruffins and the Barbeque Swingers playing at Vaughan's at 8:30pm on Thursday, December 17th
#2) The Bustout Burlesque Live Jazz & Striptease at the House of Blues with two shows at 7:30pm & 10pm on Friday, December 18th
#1) Sunpie Barnes and the Louisiana Sunspots playing at Dos Jefes Uptown Cigar Bar at 10pm on Saturday, December 19th.
If you have never seen Sunpie Barnes & the Louisiana Sunspots, then you need to get down there on Saturday night and check out his show. I would recommed getting out there as close to 10pm if you want to sit down and the bar will be packed not only with cigar smokers enjoying great cocktails, but also fans of Sunpie singing his own style of blues, zydeco, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Louisiana music. As Sunpie squeezes out his famous tunes like the "Lah Lah Song" & my personal favorite "Bunny Bread", grab a nice cigar and sit back and relax with a chimmay or a sazerac.
