RRBJ acquired this sugar skull by Conchita Iglesias-McElwee at SRAC's Day of the Dead street party. Conchita is curating a show that opens tonight at Jackrabbit Lounge, which is located in the area of Centenary's Gold Dome, George's Grill and Lil Joe (home-of-really-big-hamburgers).
To see what others think of how we celebrate dead folks check out Travel Lady Magazine. To find out more about the Jackrabbit Lounge happenings see Trudeau's blog. He's got plenty of other cool things listed for this weekend. But for a really interesting event there's rumors of ArkLaTex Wrestling holding an event at Soundstage tonight. Rock and "rassling" it can't get anymore southern than that.
Whatever you do this weekend try to eat at our local establishments at least half the time you choose to dine out... Keep Shreveport Wild!
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
