Heretics Brunch - August
- When: Sunday, August 31, 2014 @ 11:00 am
- Ignatius Eatery, 3121 Magazine St, New Orleans, view map
Before the old religion of Sunday football starts, we have to get in one more Heretics' Brunch. Then it's really back to the grind of school and shorter days. But if you have been meaning to get out of the house and enjoy some good conversation, this might fit the bill.
*** It is very important for us to have accurate numbers for food events, so please be aware of your RSVP. As a courtesy to your organizers and the other guests, if you find out that you will not be attending, even early Sunday morning, please update your RSVP, so we will be as close to the actual number as possible. Thanks for your cooperation!
"Live at the PinChurch" - Humorist and Musician, Eric Schwartz!
- When: Friday, September 26, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
- The PinChurch, You will receive the location upon ticket purchase, Metairie, LA view map
All the way from Los Angeles, CA, the amazingly-talented, Internet sensation, humorist, satirist and all-around killer-musician, Eric Schwartz will be live at the PinChurch in Metairie!
If you’ve been on the Internet, you’ve probably seen some of Eric’s socially-conscious and occasionally irreverent music videos. He’s an outspoken critic of various social policies including fundamentalist religion and wingnutty politics. His video, "Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis" has been downloaded over a million times.
Tickets $20.00 in advance - no onsite sales are available (we will post a link to purchase soon!)

Volunteering with Second Harvest Food Bank
- When: Saturday, November 01, 2014 @ 11:30 am
- Second Harvest Food Bank, 700 Edwards Avenue, New Orleans, LA view map
Here's a chance to do some community volunteering with a very needed, local organization. We'll do food sorting and packing in their warehouse and Saturdays are very coveted shifts, so we want to have a great turn out as the local humanists, right?
Many thanks to Glenn Pearl for taking the lead to organize this activity!
√ The warehouse is not climate controlled so please dress accordingly. Jeans, shorts and t-shirts are acceptable. It should be cooler in November, so come prepared.
√ Outside work is un-shaded, we have sunscreen available, but it is recommended to bring sunglasses, hats and any other necessary sun protection.
√ YOU MUST WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES! Anyone wearing flip-flops or sandals will not be permitted to work the shift.
√ Cold water bottles are available for all volunteers.
Minimum age to volunteer at Second Harvest is 9 years old.
We'll have more info the closer we get to November.
NOSHA Hits the High Seas ~ Cruise With Us!
- When: Saturday, November 29, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
- Cruise Terminal, 100 Convention Center Boulevard, New Orleans, LA view map
Ahoy, or something like that!
Members of NOSHA will be on this 5-day Carnival cruise at the end of November. We regret that the timing may not be convenient for every schedule. However, the starting price of an interior cabin is appealing ($299 and up) which makes this one of the most affordable cruises between the major holidays.
Check here for the itinerary and room selections! (You will need to go through their online reservation process which will be identified at the website. This is only an info page, so you know the details that you will be selecting.)
If you've never taken a cruise, then trying out 5-days is an easy start. For the price, you can't take a land vacation that includes all the food, hotel and amenities for less than this per day. And someone else is doing all the driving (well, sailing) for a change.
But don 't worry, this will be relaxed! There won't be any requirements or secret handshakes. We will set a short meetup event on each day at sea for anyone wishing to visit with fellow NOSHANs , but otherwise, you are encouraged to do what you and your family enjoys. It's your getaway! But chances are you will meet some nice people who enjoy doing some of the same things.
If you have any questions, please feel free to post.
You can read the backstory and inspiration for this one here.
PATRON NEWS. All the patrons who pledged $10 or more per month, and who told me which comic they’d like printed, had their prints sent out in the post yesterday. A large number of you haven’t yet said which print you’d like signed and sent, which is a bit worrying. Are you not getting the messages from Patreon? Maybe you should check your spam folder?
This month’s raffle prize, for patrons of $4 and over per month, is a signed personalised copy of Vol 4 – Big Al. The draw will be on 1st of August. Good luck!
