The absence of need to keep up property is a monetary benefit as well as a push reliever. Home-ownership accompanies a considerable measure of cerebral pains and issues and choosing to lease will help you dodge these sort of difficulties.

Cirque du Soleil is Coming to Baton Rouge

Everyone knows that Baton Rouge, Louisiana is one of the best places to be to celebrate Mardi Gras, but there are a lot of other exciting celebrations, festivals, and events here for your enjoyment all throughout the year. After all, big cities attract big names! Cherry Creek Apartments hopes to direct you to an incredible performance this coming month, specifically Cirque du Soleil’s presentation OVO.

Cirque du Soleil returns to Baton Rouge in April 2016 with OVO, its newest touring show in arenas. The production will be presented at the Baton Rouge River Center April 14-17 for just six performances, as part of a global tour in arenas around North America. Thrilling more than 4.5 million people worldwide since the show premiered in Montreal in 2009 as a Big Top show, OVO will embark on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town.

OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight, and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye — and the feeling is mutual.

The cast of OVO is comprised of fifty performing artists from twelve countries, specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning Flying Act in which a group of scarabs soar high above the stage, from both edges to the middle platform.

Do you prefer basketball to gymnastics? The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to Baton Rouge on Sunday, April 3.

Burger Inspiration: Beefing Up Your Skills on the Grill with These Baton Rouge Creations

What’s more fitting for the warmer months of summer than firing up the grill to whip up a mouth-watering burger? While you might be no stranger to a flavorful beef or veggie burger, you might be looking for ways to add some contemporary ideas to your official grill strategy. Fortunately, NOLA and Baton Rouge feature plenty of gourmet burgers to harness some overdue inspiration. Whether you put these ideas to the taste test yourself, or doctor their recipes to your personal liking, this post will give you the edible muse you need to ascend to burger perfection.Contemporary Beef

Barcadia

Previously known for their food truck burgers, this road-tested restaurant (http://barcadiabars.com/) has installed its newest update in Brian 2.0—and it looks better than ever. Featuring blue cheese with fried shoestring onions and pork belly preserves, all on top of a heavenly ground beef patty, their attention to taste will raise your sights to your forthcoming burger goals. But if you stop here, you’re not going to be the champion of summer grills you deserve to be.

Fat Cow

Sourdough bread, heavenly sliced pear, goat cheese, mustard arugula, and an onion marmalade all come together for Fat Cow’s Napa Burger (http://fatcowburgers.com/) . And this isn’t even their most adventurous burger—that honor alone might go to their signature foie gras option. If you want to get a taste of how inventive ideas pair with your favorite shakes, beers, or wines, this is the place to go.

Healthier Options

Bistro Byronz

For those that are looking for a vegetarian option, you’re probably all too familiar with the underwhelming selection at most restaurants. In lieu of fake grill marks and pre-made ingredients, Bistro Byronz (http://bistrobyronz.com/) takes the higher route. Their veggie burger is made in-house, and is topped with a memorable Asian mayo—as well as the always classic tomato and spinach.

Burgersmith

While we know that beef is classic, turkey burgers pack in just as much flavor—and with half the guilt. Built with cracked wheat buns, straight-forward grilled onion, and fresh cajun honey mustard, this grilled turkey patty (http://burgersmith.com/) is ripe for customization. The more minimalist of the bunch, there’s all the more room for striking consistency at the grill.

With plenty of choices above, we’re more than confident you’ll be able to find the burger inspiration you’ve been looking for all along. If you end up ordering something else, or sticking with our recommendations, let us know what you think—and what you’ve brought back to the grill—in the comments below!
