  NOLA

Cover-Up: Clothes No Longer Optional at The Country Club


By Ashley Rouen

NOLA’s favorite (and only) clothing optional pool will require its patrons to wear proper swim attire. Carefree, nudie days and nights swimming at the Bywater’s Country Club are over after complaints from neighbors and a rape allegation. Though local customers have expressed their continued support of the venue via Facebook the new rules were effective Tuesday (10.21). 


Royal Crush

French Quarter Building Collapse in Photos



A three story building partially collapsed at 808 Royal Street near the corner of St. Ann Street on the afternoon of Oct. 21. Water spewed from broken pipes as onlookers stood aghast at the historic facade's demise. The Fire Department and NOPD blocked off the street to control the scene. Remarkably, no one was hurt.


30 Day Reprieve in Buffa's Battle


An ongoing noise dispute between Buffa’s Lounge and neighbor Sidney Torres IV, former owner of SDT Waste and Debris Services, resulted in another 30-day compromise (Oct. 21). Lending a dramatic flair, Judge Paulette Irons announced plans to personally visit the properties and oversee further sound readings, one of which will be unannounced.


Today in NOLA: 10.22.14


Soulful chanteause Macy Gray will perform at Tipitina’s this evening with local electric soul group the Honorable South. The Historic New Orleans hosts Joshua D. Rothman, who will discuss the slave trade during the 19th century, and Big Charity will screen for the final evening at the Joy Theater as part of the New Orleans Film Festival. On this day in Louisiana history, Edwin Edwards wins 62% of the vote and was the first person elected to three terms as governor of Louisiana.


T-P to Shutter Orleans Parish Printing Plant, Cut 100 Jobs


The Times-Picayune has not garnered much popularity with their recent restructuring. The publication’s switch to digital elicited public outrage. The trend does not seem to be improving for ‘da Paper. On Tuesday, the T-P announced that they will be closing their Howard Avenue printing facility operated by ACS Louisiana, and cutting 100 production jobs.


Today in NOLA: 10.21.14


Hard hitting film abounds this Tuesday, with Spike Lee’s oeuvre Do the Right Thing screening at Dillard University and Big Charity playing today and tomorrow night at the Joy Theater. Wayne Curtis discusses the journey of Edward Payson Weston across the country by foot in 1909, and indie rock band Warpaint hit the Republic along with special guest Liam Finn. On this date in 2002, former Governor Edwin Edwards finally reported to prison in Fort Worth, TX after 10 years of trials and delays.


Weekly Weather: 10.20-10.25


By Patrick J. Pearson

A excellent fall week is in store for our area. Cool air and dry high pressure will be reinforced as a cold front moves through the area Tuesday and Wednesday. With little moisture to work with no rain is expected as the front passes through. 


Today in NOLA: 10.20.14


After a busy festival weekend and demoralizing Saints game, take in a film screening or author lecture at one of the city’s many cultural outlets.  Many of tonight’s topics center on life in contemporary Louisiana, whether it be state’s rapidly eroding coast or the Deepwater Horizon spill of 2010.


Today in NOLA: 10.19.14


Who Dat Nation will turn their ire towards Detroit this week as the Saints come back from a bye rested and ready to take on the Lions. Kickoff is at 12p.m., so plenty of time to head out after a big W and enjoy the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival at Lafayette Square Park. 90s R&B super group Dru Hill will play the Saenger Theater tonight, while DJ Matty spins Louisiana swamp pop over at One Eyed Jacks. Also, free swing dance lessons at the Allways Lounge at 8p.m., with live music from 9-11p.m!
