Wet Hot Lag B’Omer

by admin on April 23, 2019

Grab your gym shorts, sweatbands, and tube socks because JNOLA is time-warping back to the 1980’s for our gnarly Wet Hot Lag B’Omer party at Wrong Iron on the Greenway. Lag B’Omer is the Jewish holiday that celebrates the end of some tough times with a bonfire, so motor over on Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m. and totally relive the rad camp tradition of roasting marshmallows over a fire pit with all your friends. Your first drink is on us and anyone who dresses up is invited to put their name into a drawing for a tubular surprise!
