SOFAB's New Exhibit a CakeWalk
By Ashley Larsen
“Let Them Eat Cake.” The Southern Food and Beverage Museum (1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard) is hosting a debut of photographs from The Birthday Cake Project. The project is the brain child of S. Louise Neal, a local artist, who baked and gave away one free birthday cake a day for the entire month of June.
Vignette: A Night at Bacchanal
Gentle reader, if you’re trying to do anything at all, everything is a race against time. I was trying to see Helen Gillet play at Bacchanal on Monday night before the booze robbed me of my faculties to appreciate the wine and music to come. I’d been on a barstool all afternoon in Mid-City before our friend DJ Dino from WWOZ scooped me up in his car. The race was on! It was going to be close.
Our Columnist Visits Brothers III After a Harrowing STD Test
Gentle reader, mistakes were made. All the dim memories of the past few months resolved in a golem of introspective terror when I awoke, worrying me from my bed and onto a path that led through the Reproductive Health Clinic on North Rampart and into one of the greatest dive bars in the Northern Hemisphere. Stay awhile, dear friends. I will be faithful.
NoDef's Bold Columnist Makes a Pilgrimage to See Clint Maedgen at Siberia
Gentle reader, Clint Maedgen has almost certainly gone insane. It hasn’t done him a bit of harm. But back to that in a moment.
My next journey began on a bright Sunday. It was fine weather for day drinking. Good, August heat for slow walking. I grabbed a beer at the Verti Mart and strolled into the Marigny.
Emeril Celebrates National Gumbo Day (Recipe)
Today is National Gumbo Day. That's right, by act of Congress, America is celebrating Louisiana's signature dish. If the first rule of gumbo is "make a roux", the second rule might be "no one agrees on the best recipe". However, in honor of the occasion, Emeril Lagasse shared the recipe for a serious seafood contender with us.
NoDef's Intrepid Columnist Ventures to Lucky Pierre's on Bourbon
Gentle reader, I have come to Bourbon Street! At the ironic insistence of Your Cousin Dimitri of WWOZ fame, I have come. And now that I am here, I take it as a public service to enter into the maw and go down into the belly so that you, gentle reader, might remain unsullied and yet still know.
Pie in the Sky
Blaze Pizza Coming to South Market
New Orleanians have long debated the hierarchy of pizzerias in the city. Now, a new contender is throwing their crust into the fray. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza is not made in a Bywater backyard. The new store is an offshoot of a national chain known for custom pies cooked in a 180 seconds.
Nigerian Pop-Up Comes to NOLA
