Two second lines will parade through areas of Uptown New Orleans this weekend, one running the length of Central City on Saturday and another looping through the neighborhoods around Louisiana Avenue on Sunday.
The driver, 25-year-old Abhishek Bhansali, was legally drunk last year when his car hit a Metairie man, and he pleaded guilty Wednesday to negligent homicide, reports Gwen Filosa of The Times Picayune.
The latter portion of the parade is primarily on Louisiana Avenue. Stops along the route include the Ash Cultural Arts Center on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, Silkey’s on Magnolia Street, The Other Place on Foucher Street, LeRoux on Louisiana Avenue, ending at the Rock Bottom Lounge on Tchoupitoulas.
The second line is slated to begin at 1 p.m.
The Prince of Wales 82nd Annual Second Line will parade through several Uptown neighborhoods Sunday.
A man caught on surveillance camera running from an Uptown store where a smartphone was stolen is being sought by police, who released his image Thursday morning.
