Pam Bordelon for April 9, 2014

One of my favorite spring events takes place this coming Saturday night — Baton Rouge Ballet’s “Dancin’ in the Streets” block party fundraiser at Perkins Rowe. It all starts at 7 p.m. with food from some of the city’s best restaurants and caterers, and dancing to the sounds of Phat Hat. Get your tickets online at or call (225) 766-8379. Save me a dance!
