With festival season behind us, we will start a fresh round of City Walks this Sunday evening, Mother's Day, May 13,
at 7pm. We had hoped to start this week's walk in Central City, but it proved impossible to find a viable route to Ernie K-Doe's in the Treme. The New Orleans Bayou Steppers Social Aid and Pleasure Club have been planning a wonderful reception for us, featuring the NewBirth Brass Band, so we must make it to Ernie K-Doe's by 8pm!
Therefore we will return to Sound Cafe, our home base in the Marigny/Bywater, as the City Walk starting point once again. Here is the entire route:
SilenceIsViolence City Walk #4, hosted by the New Orleans Bayou
Steppers Social Aid and Pleasure Club! START: Sound Cafe, 2700
Chartres St., 7pm SHARP! Walk up Chartres to Kerlerec; veer right on
Kerlerec and continue to Burgundy St. Turn LEFT onto Burgundy and
RIGHT onto Barracks St. Continue up Barracks to Marais St. Turn
RIGHT on Marais and LEFT on Kerlerec to Claiborne Ave. Turn RIGHT on
Claiborne Ave. to Ernie K-Doe's Mother-in-Law Lounge, 1500 N.
Claiborne Ave. STOP at Ernie K-Doe's.
As always, transportation will be provided from Ernie K-Doe's back to
Sound Cafe between 8 am 9pm. Also, we will be offering Silence is
Violence t-shirts at cost ($9) to anyone who joins the walk at Sound
Cafe, although you are free to dress as you like or bring your own
sign or banner.
