If White Linen Night showcases The Warehouse District’s “SoHo of the South” status, then Dirty Linen Night is a great example of New Orleanians’ quirky, fun side. Think of it as White Linen Night’s less sophisticated cousin.
Like White Linen Night, Dirty Linen Night features local art, music and plenty of food and beverages. But Dirty Linen Night differs in a couple of major ways:
1 – Dirty Linen Night takes place along Royal Street, Jackson Square and Dutch Alley.
2 – Dirty Linen Night happens exactly one week after White Linen Night.
3 – In true tongue-in-cheek style, Dirty Linen Night shoppers are asked to wear the dirty clothes that they originally wore to White Linen Night. That’s not a requirement, of course, but it is highly encouraged!
Many of the shop owners and galleries serve dirty martinis and dirty rice to those coming in and out of the shops, and some even put dirty laundry baskets outside their doors to add to the whimsical feel of the night. Many artists will even deliver over-sized pieces of art for those who purchase pieces on the spot.
