The Zydepunks played a long and fantastic set last Saturday, but they announced that it would not be their last show…just yet, anyway. You can see them in two weeks at Tipitina's. This week is The Southern Food and Beverage Museum's (SoFab) Hungry in the South Conference, and there are many cool movies that are a great way to experience the conference. You can see all of the events here.
The Zeitgeist Center is hosting the films for SoFab's Film Feast. The opening gala will be on Thursday night and include a reception at 7 p.m. and a screening of Shellshocked: Saving Oysters to Save Ourselves and Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of our Lives at 8 p.m. This event is $25. Friday, the film for the Feast is The Man Who Ate New Orleans about Ray Canatta who ate at every restaurant in the city. This screening is $10 at 10 p.m.
Hungry in the South moves over to the Rouses Market in the CBD on Saturday at 7 p.m. For $15, you get dinner and a movie: Big Night. Later, you can win $100 at Siberia beginning at 10 p.m. Jonathon Toubin is making his way from NY to N.O. to host the Soul Clap Party along with local artists Katey Red, DJ Bunny, Guitar Lightnin' Lee, and more. A panel of judges will determine the winner of the money during a dance off competition. This party is free. If you'd rather be a spectator to dancing, cross the street to see Bella Blue's Dirty Dime Peepshow at the Allways Lounge. Starting at the stroke of midnight, this show will feature more lovely ladies than you can handle including Bella herself, Lula Houp Garou, VeVe LeRoux and so many more. This show is in the back of the house and the cover is $15.
Sunday is the anticipated Saint's game where we'll see if the team truly did learn from the mistakes the week before. I recommend watching the game on the big screen at Pat's Pub on Edenborne Avenue in Fat City; everyone in the bar gets a free beer when our boys score. If you can peel yourself away from the tube, Zeitgeist screens Seeds of Freedom and The Politics of GMOs at 1 p.m. It's also the French Market's first ever Cookbook Fair, a part of Hungry in the South. This event is free and goes on from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., so you'll have plenty of time after the game to swap books and shop around.
