March Madness is over, but now it's time to jump right into sunny April. There are plenty of happenings this week to do that.
Egypt is in vogue at Tulane where Dr. John Verano and Dr. Melinda Nelson-Hurst present the Tulane Mummies on campus at 103 Dinwiddie Hall on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The event is free, open to the public, and first-come, first-seated.
This Friday is a pub crawl unlike any other. NOLA Bunarchy will travel through the Bywater, Marigny, and Quarter starting at Mimi's at 7 p.m. and wind its way west to end at 1135 Decatur at midnight.

You can purchase passes for $10 at Funrockin' on Decatur Street or Magazine Street and the crawl benefits Nola's Ark Animal Rescue. There is no cover at any of the bars en route if you have the pass.

The show starts at 10 p.m.
