Annie, get your gumbo: You have your choice of ways to celebrate ethnicity today--you can check out the zydeco, alligator pie and jambalaya at Festival New Orleans, 1 p.m. at Fiddler's Green, or get thee to the mountains, mon, for this year's Reggae Sunsplash, 2 p.m. at the Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge. Either way, there'll be plenty of nonstop music--all things Louisianan, including Buckwheat Zydeco, Zachary Richard, John Delafose, or Jamaican reggae with Steel Pulse, Maxi Priest, Marcia Griffiths and others. Tickets for the Fiddler's Green festival are $17.50 (plus a $3 facility fee), while Sunsplash admission goes for $22.50 in advance ($25 day of show); whichever way you decide to swing, call 290-TIXS.

Monday June 13 Dress rehearsal: Perhaps you forgot that America's favorite wacky wabbit Bugs Bunny often appeared wagging his eyelashes on screen as anything from a Southern belle to a rose-between-the-teeth flamenco dancer. Bugs in Drag, a new perspective on cartoondom's perpetual wiseass, will have you on the floor laughing at the Mayan Theatre, 1st and Broadway, where the brassy animated collection ends a short run today. For showtimes or other details, call 744-6796 and ask, "What's up, Doc?"

Tuesday June 14 A commercial success: Admit it. When a commercial is good, you don't mind seeing it over and over--as any couch potato must. And you won't mind seeing it again if it was selected for The World's Best Commercials 1993, a review of commanding, silly and slick advertisements from around the world. The flick, which includes Nike's pitting of Charles Barkley against Godzilla, a raunchy British offering for Foster's Lager and computer-animated wonders from Japan, opens a three-day run at the Mayan, 1st and Broadway, today. Call 744-6796 for showtimes.
