A perfect night to support local artists! Sponsored by The French Quarterly Magazine, this “dirty” gallery and shop hop is the French Quarter’s tongue-in-cheek answer to the more pristine White Linen Night, held the prior week in the Warehouse District. Art lovers and casual strollers are invited to visit the participating galleries and shops up and down the world-famous Royal Street and make purchases of fabulous artworks on display. To add to the fun, many of the participating gallery and shop owners give away dirty martinis and dirty rice.
