Two More Things To Add To My April Calendar

Crawfest on Saturday was a blast, and a pretty good day vending, as well. The weather couldn't have been more perfect, the crawfish were really tasty (damn those potatoes were spicy!), and the music was amazing (love those Zydepunks!). Thanks to all who came out and stopped in the booth to say hello and/or buy stuff from me.

Since my last post, I've finalized a few more events on my April calendar. First up, this coming Saturday, I signed up last-minute-like for the new 2nd-Saturday Broad Street Bazaar. I haven't done this market since December, due to scheduling conflicts, and now that they've decided to move to the second Saturday of the month so as not to conflict with the Arts Council Palmer Park art market, I think it's worth trying it again. So, it's this Saturday, April 11th, from 11am - 4pm, at the corner of Bienville and Broad St, in the old Robert's/Schwegmann's parking lot. They've got a full house of art, craft, flea and other vendors, plus several new food vendors, including folks selling pepper jelly and fresh produce. Musical entertainment includes the House of Healing Gospel Choir and Fredy Omar Con Su Banda, and the market will also be spotlighting seasonal merch, from fresh spring flowers to Easter baskets and bonnets. So put that on your list of stops to make while you're out and about around town on Saturday. And cross your fingers for nice weather!

Later in the month, I'll be doing one of the YLC Wednesday At The Square events, on April 22, from 5-7:30pm. Located in Lafayette Square, off St. Charles across from Gallier Hall in the CBD, this free concert series is always a lot of fun. I'll be sharing the booth with Rachelle of (we are covering the booth for sister Craft Mafiosa Heather of Unique Products, while she prepares for Festival International that week), and the musical entertainment will be Kermit Ruffins & the Barbecue Swingers + Jake Smith. There's lots of great food and drink, too, tickets for which you can purchase ahead of time if you'd like - just visit the link above for all the scoop. Oh, and $4 parking is available at 650 Poydras Street after 4pm, which is good to know, because it can sometimes be really hard to park down there. I haven't done this market for several years - since before Katrina - so I'm very much looking forward to it.

OK, I think that's it for April, unless something else comes up... but that's pretty busy compared to the last few months. May will be much the same, with another Bridge Lounge Craft Mafia sale for Mother's Day, the Bayou Boogaloo, and possibly some more Wednesday At The Square dates, plus a few weekend art markets all on the horizon. But I'll post that calendar when more of it is finalized and May is closer.
