GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to inspire people to give generously to nonprofits making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all.
The Creativity Collective’s second annual Corset Crawl, a pub crawl through the New Freret in corsets is Saturday, May 13, 2017. Corset Crawl offers drink and food discounts to wrist-banded attendees. The route is 1 mile, but well lubricated!
The Creativity Collective’s fourth annual Bridal Crawl, a pub crawl through the French Quarter in wedding dresses is Saturday, September 23, 2017. This original New Orleans event is jaw-dropping fun with droves of brides drinking, eating, and dancing—some reliving their special day, some brides for the first time.
