Last Supper Dinner Club
- When: Thursday, September 03, 2015 @ 6:00 pm
- World of Beer, 300 Julia St., New Orleans, LA view map
For some people, also known as "Nirvana", right?
For anyone who isn't a beer drinker, WOB also offers other beverages, sodas and Coke products: http://worldofbeer.com/TavernMenus/WarehouseDistrict
We thought we'd try this new place before it gets too popular and we'll be reaching out to our downtown crowd at the same time. Don't worry about the parking; there are lots along Convention Center Blvd., so you won't have to drive around in circles looking that elusive slot that always goes to the guy in front of you.

As a courtesy to the other attendees and the restaurant, please be sure that your RSVP is accurate as of the afternoon of this event.
A Conversation With Zack Kopplin
- When: Saturday, September 19, 2015 @ 4:00 pm
- Audubon Zoo, 6500 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA view map
Zack Kopplin, who many of you know as the high school student from Baton Rouge who took on the Governor and the anti-science crowd a few years ago to fight against the decidedly unscientific law, the Louisiana Science Education Act, is back!
He'll talk to us about how the LSEA is being used to teach creationism in Bossier, Sabine, Ouachita, Central, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne and Livingston parishes and how there are constant efforts from members of the religious right around the state to expand it even further.
Plus, he'll address how NOSHA members and others around the state can help monitor and take action against these efforts.
Kopplin, who earned NOSHA’S Humanist Award in 2011, is currently a senior history major at Rice University in Houston and has been interviewed on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, where Bill Maher noted, on the show, that Kopplin was the youngest guest ever to appear. MSN.com called Kopplin “the Doogie Howser of political activists.”
Kopplin has been featured by numerous international media outlets that include the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, Huffington Post, Moyers and Company, MSNBC, NPR, Public Radio International and Vogue Magazine Kopplin is also a columnist for The Guardian, a British daily newspaper.
To get to the meeting place at the zoo: Enter from Magazine Street at Zoo Avenue (between the two stone lions) and continue to the statue of Audubon. The entry way to our area (the Dominion Learning Center) is to the right of the main entrance through the metal gates.
The gate will be locked, so you will need to press a button on the left side that will alert zoo security that you are attending the NOSHA meeting.
If the weather is good or there is a festival, parking will be at a premium so give yourself plenty of time to find a spot.
For more information about NOSHA please check our website at www.nosha.info or contact email@example.com
All NOSHA meetings are free and open to the general public.
