Saturday, August 20th from 12 PM to 8 PM at the Rock Bottom, 3801 Tchoupitoulas. The OGs are a club raising money to help kids in our neighborhood. They are a group of men who have been through some hard times themselves and are eager to keep young men and women in the Irish Channel out of trouble.
