The TNT, or Thursday Night Trolley, starts at Multicultural Center of the South on this go-round, says Bonne Summers. The stops to be made include . . .

The current Multicultural Center of the South art exhibit is “Tall and Skinny” by Katherine Pate. On the third floor of the building is “A Tribute to Soldiers of North Louisiana.” It features military memorabilia from the collection of noted photog and history buff J. Frank McAneny. Entertainment is aslo slated for those strolling through the vast center.

Sci-Port Discovery Center
Visitors experience the world’s first interactive digital planetarium at the new Space Center as well as having the chance to sample the popular liquid nitrogen ice cream!

Scottish Rite Temple is new on the TNT agenda.
Opened in 1917, this magnificent building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the hidden gems in the downtown district. Each of the large rooms in this Temple draws the eye upward to take in all of the detail in design. Being home to the Masonic organization, this facility has not been open to the general public until recently.

Municipal Auditorium, “Stage of Stars” Museum
Former home of the “Louisiana Hayride” radio program, this grand building is where popular stars like Elvis Presley and Hank Williams got their start. Visit the museum dedicated to the “Cradle of the Stars” and see memorabilia from dozens of performers who have walked the stage.

Artspace tonight
The MLK Intergenerational Quilters currently have an exquisite quilt exhibit on display upstairs that is truly worth your stop here.
Come on in to Artspace tonight for live entertainment - the Bluebirds - and cash bar.
