On Friday, October 22, from 6:30-10:30pm, the Porch Crawl, MCNO’s annual fundraiser, will return to Mid-City. After beginning the evening with treats and drinks at the Mid-City Yacht Club (440 S. Saint Patrick Street) and the adjacent St. Patrick’s Park, Mid-City residents and visitors will be led on guided tours of five fabulous area porches.
At each porch, participants will sip cocktails and other frosty beverages and enjoy select nibbles from Crescent City Steakhouse, Crescent Pie & Sausage, Katie’s Restaurant, Mandina’s, Ralph’s on the Park, and Ruby Slipper Café. Luscious libations will be provided by Banks Street Bar, Evangeline Lounge, Finn McCool’s, Mid-City Yacht Club, New Orleans Rum, NOLA Brewing Co. and Republic Liquor Distributors.
