Looking for a distraction from family togetherness or Black Friday madness? For beer fans, check out the Thanksgiving-adjacent craft beer events happening Thursday and Friday in New Orleans.

On Thursday, the Courtyard Brewery (1020 Erato St.)  will be open at around 4:30 p.m. to provide IPA lovers with a “Hoppy Thanksgiving.” Stone Ruination Imperial IPA, Green Flash West Coast Imperial IPA, Stone Go To IPA, Lagunitas New Dogtown double dry hopped Pale Ale, Lagunitas IPA, New Belgium Accumulation White IPA, and Ommegang Hop House dry hopped Belgian Pale Ale will all be on tap on Thanksgiving, alongside some non-hoppy beers to round out the selection.

Southern Decadence 2014: Events, parties and full schedule

Posted By on Fri, Aug 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM

CHERYL GERBER
  • CHERYL GERBER


Southern Decadence began as a small party and parade among friends in 1972. Next weekend, the annual event will celebrate its 43rd anniversary, complete with multiple street parties, parades, drag shows and fundraisers — all to the tune of this year's official song: "Work Bitch" (by everyone's favorite Louisiana girl, Britney Spears, who has a strangely British accent in this song). 

This year's theme is "Under the Big Top: Welcome to the Gayest Show on Earth," and participants will show it off with the year's official colors: canary yellow, turquoise blue and pearl white. 

Reba Douglas, who performs regularly at the Bourbon Street watering hole Lucky Pierre's, is this year's Grand Marshal. Co-Grand Marshals are Chad Boutte and Aubrey Synclaire. 

Each year, Southern Decadence chooses a non-profit to which it donates proceeds from its various events, and this year it's Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) New Orleans

To kick things off there's a VIP Gala benefitting PFLAG at the House of Blues August 28. There'll be an open vodka bar, hors d'oeuvres, performances and a DJ, not to mention all the glittered shenanigans Southern Decadence is known for (in appropriate, official colors, of course), and about a million different annual events throughout the weekend to keep you dancing, drinking and letting it all hang out.

A full schedule for the weekend is below the jump. And a list of outrageous stories from Decadence past is here, to get you excited.
