February Events

TOP PICKS

NBA All-Star Celebrity Game
The NBA All-Star Game is great. But one of the fun and underrated events of the NBA All-Star weekend (recently moved to New Orleans in protest of North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law) is the all-star celebrity game. Here, you’ll get to watch some of your favorite actors and singers show you what they have (or don’t have) on the basketball court. It is Feb. 17 at 6 p.m. at the Smoothie King Center. Tickets run $27-235. Information, AllStarWeekendNewOrleans2017.com


Lundi Gras
If you wake up on Lundi Gras (Feb. 27 this year) and want something to do before the evening’s parades, check out Zulu’s Lundi Gras Festival. It is at Woldenberg Park and is free and open to the public. Revelers can enjoy live music from such local luminaries as DJ Jubliee and the Rebirth Brass Band 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. There will also be food, arts and crafts. Then head upriver to the nearby Riverwalk to watch the arrival of Rex, King of Carnival, followed by fireworks. Information, LundiGrasFestival.com


Cookies & Cocktails Gala
Who doesn’t love Girl Scout Cookies? Fans of the classic snacks can enjoy Girl Scout Cookie-inspired dishes and drinks at the Cookies & Cocktails Gala on Feb. 4 at the XLIV Club. Twenty local chefs and bartenders will participate. Guests can also enjoy live music, a photo booth and a silent auction. Proceeds benefit Girl Scouts Louisiana East. Tickets are $75; for gala and patron access, it’s $100. Information, 355-5885.
