Stabbing on Decatur, Stickup on Burgundy
The New Orleans Police Department are reporting a stabbing and a stickup in the Quarter on Saturday (1.11). An afternoon argument turned violent on the troubled 900 block of Decatur Street. Closer to Canal Street, two couples got mugged in their car.
Trash Talk: Landrieu, Torres Spar
Sidney D. Torres IV is out of the waste industry, but the local mogul is still concerned about the Quarter being trashed. After the downtown crime wave struck home with SDT, he launched an aggressive campaign to demand action from the City. The Mayor, an adversary from past contract negotiations, did not appreciate the critique. Torres has quickly become embroiled in a very public tangle with Perdido Street.
$250k Blue Dog Lifted from Quarter Gallery
In New Orleans, George Rodrigue's blue dogs seem to outnumber living dogs at some moments. However, some dogs hold more value than others. Yesterday, one very special blue dog was taken from the George Rodrigue Gallery (730 Royal Street) in a brazen daylight theft.
Pop-ups these days are all the rage. Now, even English diplomats are jumping on the bandwagon. For four days (1.06-1.09) the Great Britain will operate a pop-up consulate in NOLA to honor the 200th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans.
Procession for Jeanne d'Arc Rolls Through Quarter Tonight

FQ's M.R.B. Shows the Joy of Sports Bars & the Pain of Sports
Gentle reader, thanks be to God that football season is finally over. Anyone who thought the Saints were improved without Sproles stands now properly chastised. But for me, my friends, there yet remained the final, cruel technicality of a Detroit Lions playoff game, and no better bar exists for watching football in this city than M.R.B. on St. Phillip in the French Quarter.
Wrapping Up 2014
Reflecting on NOLA at Year's End (Photos)
Some say New Orleans never changes. No matter what, there will always be a Mardi Gras and a Jazz Fest just like last year. As the final hours of 2014 melt into memory, we are often called to look back, as well as forward. While we take in our last minutes of another journey around the sun, NoDef's Ashley Rouen decided to look at what's happening in New Orleans now, determined to discover what is NOLA at a glance. The photos below were taken in the French Quarter (12.30) on a cold and overcast day just before the new year festivities.
Jumped on Stroll: NOPD Releases Video of Attempted Christmas Mugging
Early on Christmas (12.25) morning, a group of grinches attacked a man and tried to rob him in the Quarter. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) now has a lead on the five suspects making the naughty list.
Cane & Table Adds to Stable
Downtown hotspot Cane & Table (1113 Decatur Street) is adjusting to the cooler weather. The proto-tiki destination is rolling out a couple of new menus and longer hours. A new drink list, a happy hour, and a rotating lunch menu all debuted in the last few weeks.
