Bywater StormFest Eases New Season's Nerves
Saturday, June 1, marks the first official day of the time of year New Orleanians dread most: hurricane season. While the city should always take a stirring cyclone seriously, why not combat the chaos and ring in the new season with what the city does best: a festival. This Saturday from noon to 5 pm, the Goodchildren Social Aid and Pleasure Club hosts StormFest at Holy Angels (3500 St. Claude Ave., Bywater).
Hang Tin: Chaz Fest Recap (PHOTOS)
According to a friend of mine, the homes in the Bywater are “so close together you can hear your neighbor reading a magazine.” This past Wednesday, the two stages of Chaz Fest brought more interesting noises to incidentally overhear if you were in the neighboring blocks.
All That Chaz
On 8th Year in the 9th Ward, Chaz Fest Still Comfortable Right Where It Is
It rhymes with Jazz Fest, and it's held on the Wednesday between Jazz Fest weekends. But Alex McMurray, the organizer and mastermind behind the Bywater's Chaz Fest--now in its eighth year--is getting a little weary of the press-ready comparison.

Settlement Brings New Hope for Reopening of Blighted Marigny Robert Fresh Market
Robert Fresh Market cleared a major hurdle recently in their effort to bring back a shuttered, Katrina-battered grocery store location in the Marigny.

The move clears the way for Robert to begin the planning process to bring the store back online, but it remains uncertain when the store would reopen.
Delays at Section of Riverfront Park
Update 9:05 p.m.
One section of the of the riverside park that is set to extend from the French Quarter through the Bywater hit another delay recently.

That's because a crossing at the section has undergone a redesign, according to the City.
Person of Interest Sought in Shooting of NOPD Officer
New Orleans police released a composite sketch of person of interest in the Saturday morning shooting of Officer John Passaro.

St. Patricks' Day Practice, Ninth Ward Second Line in New Orleans Sunday

Op-Ed: Bywater Residents Left Out of Markey Park Plans
by Randi Kaufman
I’m a regular user of Mickey Markey Park, and have been bringing my dogs to the park daily since 2002. I remember when it was a bunch of overgrown weeds, and the broken down playground equipment was littered with used syringes and condoms.
