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.


Stabbing on Governor Nicholls


“Help. Help. Help.” Those were the desperate cries that rang out in the 1000 block of Governor Nicholls St. last night (12.17) when a 43 year old victim was stabbed. 


Lot of Crime


Crime never sleeps. It also doesn’t park. On Tuesday (12.16) night, a trio was mugged in the Premium Parking garage on the 400 block of North Rampart Street. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) has identified three suspects.


NOPD Releases New Photo of Suspect in Failed Quarter Mugging


One woman's Christmas walk in the Quarter was interrupted by a pair of grinches who allegedly hit her after a failed mugging on Decemebr 4. However, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is not letting the case slide. Today a new image of a suspect was released.


Failed Mugging in French Quarter Results in Suspect Search


For some people Christmas time is more about the naughty then the nice. A string of muggings have recently swept the city and police are on the hunt for suspects in one failed attempt. Today, authorities released images of two men accused of instigating a failed French Quarter robbery on December 4.


Badine, a Small Street of Big Importance, to See Temporary Closures


Most New Orleanians have never heard of Badine Street. The stretch of road is small, basically one city block long with a small hook at the end. However, the small strip of asphalt will be closed next week which could mean headaches for holiday shoppers.


Cathedral Concerts Kick Off


Holiday time is perfect for music. Sometimes, the temperature is bit too cold for caroling, and New Orleanians must find their yuletide inside. Starting tonight (12.1,) Christmas New Orleans Style will be warming the souls and the ears of locals with their annual month-long concert series at St. Louis Cathedral.


No Quarter: Muggers Snatch Sneakers, iPhones in FQ


The French Quarter was the scene of two armed robberies early this morning (11.30.) In one case, another victim wound up barefooted after a thief stole his jewelry and his kicks. A second victim had his phone and his money stolen.


Beetlejuice & the Bandit


Cue the Harry Belafonte. Police are saying the name ‘Beetlejuice’ three times. A man resembling the bio-exorcist is the only clue that NOPD has in a brutal, November 1 French Quarter beating. This Beetlejuice tried to help the victims, not scare them away. He may also have key information about the suspects. 


Quarter Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas


By Cody Hoover

Now that Halloween has ended the Christmas spirit has began its rapid infiltration of New Orleans. On Monday (11.17) I walked into Jackson Square where the staff of French Quarter Fest Inc. hung red bows from light poles and filled bushes with white lights. The organization is a 501C3 nonprofit that produces French Quarter Festival, Satchmo SummerFest, and Christmas New Orleans Style which will soon be underway.
