Shoppers who enjoy the unique charms of Uptown’s local businesses may have a busy day Saturday, with the Oak Street “Garage Sale” and the monthly Freret Market in the daytime, followed by the Magazine Street Champagne Stroll in the evening — and all three events are scheduled to proceed as planned, rain or shine.
After several months of redesigns based on conversations with Oak Street neighbors, developers will seek the city’s permission this month to build a four-story condo near Leonidas Street with a gym on the first floor.
Magazine Street’s Premier Springtime event!
The annual Magazine Street Champagne Stroll takes place tomorrow, May 10 from 5 to 9pm. Stroll the six-mile stretch of shops, restaurants, galleries, and businesses along Magazine Street. Our shops will stay open late to welcome visitors with champagne, events, special offers and music!
After the Freret Market on Saturday afternoon, stop by the Du Mois Gallery for an opening for the new summer exhibit, Voyages, featuring artists Ken Kenan and Harriet Burbeck.

Now that all the glitz and glamour of Monday’s inauguration is over, it’s time to get down to business. First on the list should be how the Mayor and Council are going to come up with all the millions to fund the two consent decrees and the firefighters’ judgment while keeping money flowing to other agencies in need, like the public libraries and the Sewerage and Water Board.
