Read columnist and photographer Steven Forster’s coverage of New Orleans’ social events at The New Orleans Advocate.

Events featured in this edition:

Retroactive: One Eyed Jacks went back in time to an era of bullet bras and the best of 1950s Rock ’n’ Roll, as Fleur de Tease paired up with The Cons & Prose for an all new show, “Sock Hop.”

Get the Party Started: The Ooh Poo Pah Doo Bar celebrated its grand opening at 1931 Orleans Ave. in Treme. The new live music club is owned by the granddaughter of New Orleans singer Jessie Hill and is named in honor of his signature hit. Members of the talented Andrews family, also grandchildren of Hill, were there to start the music.

Holidays and Nights: Miracle on Fulton Street invited families to experience the magic of the holidays, complete with hourly snowfall, live reindeer, hot cocoa, a holiday market and music by Deltaville.
