The ED's at Civic Theater

Civic-TheatreThe 18th Annual ED’s Awards Show at the Civic Theater

August 25, 9-11 pm (reception from 8-9 pm)

The Annual ED’s Awards, the adult nightclub industry’s only national awards show, finds a brand new home in the most historic theater in all of New Orleans—the Civic Theatre. Built in 1906, the Civic Theatre is a beautiful historic structure, and care has been taken at every step to preserve these details. Original touches, such as the beaux arts plaster work that graces the stage and balconies, connect contemporary theatergoers with past generations who first enjoyed the theater.

Complimentary transportation will be provided from the Hilton Riverside to the Civic, and while the show will boast what many have come to expect from the show—a top comedian host and fantastic ED’s “Entertainer of the Year” performances—this year will boast some surprises as well!  The ED’s Awards pre nominations ballot will launch in May 2015, so stay tuned for more information!

Bourbon Street Pub Crawl

poker2Opening Night Bourbon Street Pub Crawl
August 24, 8 pm-1 am

When you have NOLA’s world-famous Bourbon Street beckoning just a few blocks away—and with so many adult clubs located within a mere feet of one another—why have an Opening Night Party anywhere else? The EXPO 2015 “Opening Night Bourbon Street Pub Crawl” will begin with a one-hour reception at the host hotel (Hilton Riverside), followed by visits at four top New Orleans adult clubs each hour, on the hour. How will EXPO attendees get from the Hilton to the first club on the Pub Crawl? We’ll all follow our very own jazz band procession down Bourbon Street, of course! 


Once you’ve had your complimentary drink at the one-hour hotel reception from 8 to 9 pm, follow the jazz band and the rest of EXPO 2015 attendees to the first club in the crawl—the Penthouse Club! This hour at Penthouse (9-10 pm) will boast a complimentary drink, as well as a performance from one of the industry’s top feature entertainers. Each hour will follow a similar format, as we travel from Penthouse to Rick’s Cabaret (10-11 pm), from Rick’s to the Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club (11 pm to midnight) and from the Hustler Club to Babe’s Cabaret (midnight to 1 am). 


And here's one more twist: It's also a "poker run"! At the one-hour reception and at each club, attendees will each receive a playing card (that’s five cards total). Whoever has the best “poker hand” once they’ve received their fifth and final card at Babe’s will receive a special prize!
