White Linen Night in the Heights is just around the corner (it's Saturday from 6 -9 p.m.) and while the dress code may be obvious for this New Orleans-style art, shopping, dining, drinking, fashion and entertainment rolling party, the logistics are not.
The event's website is full of helpful info, but CultureMap is here to break it down for 'ya.
There will be shuttles ... well, shuttling breezy-briefed wanderers to the events on West 19th Street, Heights Boulevard, 11th Street, Studewood, White Oak and Yale.
Here's where you park (but don't tell anyone we told you):
- Walgreens on 20th and Yale
- Saint Andrews at 19th Street and Heights Boulevard
- Vineyard Church at 11th Street and Michaux
- The Chase Bank lot at 20th Street and Lawrence
- Freebirds Sawyer location (they will be shuttling pre-partiers to the thick of things)
Here's what you should be sure to hit up:
- Venus Hair — their veteran art car, a hearse, is called the Venus Hairse. You gotta meet 'em.
- Cricket's Creamery — gelato, good espresso and doodads for the kids
- Kaboom Books — only the Houston Avenue location's on the map, but there's another next door to Antidote.
- Cedar Creek — if you haven't been yet, visit the second-to-latest addition to the Creek family. This would be a good wrap-up spot.
- Zelko Bistro — it's seriously good AND has funnel cake on the dessert menu. Charming.
- Jimmy's Ice house — catch up on the latest conspiracy theories
- Chippendale Eastlake Antiques — Disappear for a while, tell your significant other you were at Chippendales and make peace with the antique you picked up there.
- Fixers Automotive — Another good stop for the kiddies, they're sponsoring distractions aimed at the smaller set.
- Jubliee — feathers and glitter and funk.
- Harolds "in the Heights" — in its 60th year of business. If you still don't know how to tie a bow-tie, they'll teach you.
