A lack of funds doesn’t need to kill your weekend.

We get it. You just came out of Essence Fest and you’re a week away from a paycheck. It can be a tough time. But just because you’re coming up short doesn’t mean you have to hide inside all weekend. Check out a few of the freshest, free-est things happening this weekend.
Creepy Fest At Checkpoint Charlie’s
Most of the shows making up the annual horror-punk throwdown charge a cover. And trust that $15 for a TSOL reunion show is worth it. But if that’s a little steep there’s a free set on Saturday that doesn’t skimp on the entertainment. Spooky skate punks Nosferat II will share the stage with the excellent Houston punk act Ese in a bill that runs from 6 til near midnight.
Where: Checkpoint Charlies
When: Saturday, July 14, 6:00 p.m.
Vegan 2 The Soul Food Festival
Free your mind and your wallet will follow. This free vegan soul food fest will feature yoga and music for the cost of $0. The food ain’t free. Toss NOLA’s vegan vendors a few dollars if you can you can. But even if you can’t, you can still get right at this all-day fest.
Where: Washington Square Park
When: Sunday, July 15, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
The W Dive-In Movie
The French Quarter hotel opens up their pool once a month to allow any old rabble to swim around and catch a movie. The pool opens at 6:30 with the movie not starting until sunset. Be sure to get there early to grab a spot.
Where: The W French Quarter
When: Sunday, July 15, 6:30 p.m.
Ann Glaviano has worked hard to create one of the best dance nights in New Orleans (and in Mid-City, no less). Take a look at our profile of her “pro-consent, anti-asshole dancefloor” and then allow yourself to get loose to some of the best soul slabs ever released.
Where: Twelve Mile Limit
When: Saturday, July 14. 10 p.m.
