We've got your weekend: We have some questions for you

Thursday, June 23/New Orleans Public Library (219 Loyola Avenue): Do you want to learn more about the history of New Orleans and Creoles? The library is holding a talk that will focus on the origins, development, and concepts that surround Creole history. The talk runs from 6:00 P.M. until 7:30 P.M. It is free and open to the public.

Friday, June 24/The Joy Theater (1200 Canal Street): Do you ever want to simply shout out, "Hell Yes!"? Well, in New Orleans, it's all about making weird dreams come true. Not only do you get to shout "Hell Yes!" but you get to attend a pre-festival full of comedians called the "Hell Yes Next!" Local comics will be taking the stage, making you laugh, and competing with one another. The show starts at 8:00 P.M. and tickets are $20 (general) and $30 (VIP). Hell yes, this sounds fun, so you can purchase your tickets here.

Saturday, June 25/Zeitgeist (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.): Do you want to see girls rock out on their instruments? Hell yes! Okay, the above event is starting a trend, and hell yes we're going to go with it! Girls Rock New Orleans Showcase is taking over Zeitgeist, and in case you don't know about Girls Rock, here's a quick rundown. Girls go to a camp. They get paired up with other girls. Strangers. They form a band. Six days later they put on a concert that you can attend for a suggested donation of $10. No one is turned away if they cannot pay, and the rocking goes from 3:00 P.M. until 4:00 P.M.

Sunday, June 26/5000 St. Claude Avenue: Do you want to learn how to make plant-based "milk" products? I think we know your answer by now. Well, then you will want to head over to the Plant-based Milks with Sister Princess event. It's all about natural products, healing, and health. The event starts at 2:00 P.M. and costs $10 (Eat Local Challenge participants) and $20 (general public).
