French Quarter Weed Bust

Is there a weed dealing ring in the Marigny and French Quarter? The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) believes so and after a pair of arrests downtown, they are reporting that the “mastermind” may be in custody.

Homeless Man Arrested After Quarter Stabbing

The French Quarter was again the setting for violent crime during daylight this morning. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) reported that one homeless man is in custody and a second is in the hospital after a stabbing on Wednesday (8.12) morning.

Pressure Drop: French Quarter Edition

The French Quarter is receiving a continued dose of the construction woes that have plagued the CBD and Uptown in recent years. The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced that some broken infrastructure means that portions of the French Quarter will be experiencing low water pressure over the next few days.

Laundry Day

Dirty Linen Night Rolls on Royal

Do you still have pile of unwashed clothes from White Linen Night sitting under your bed? Fear not! Saturday (8.08) is Dirty Linen Night an evening to celebrate art in the Quarter whilst indulging in a soiled sartorial sensibility.  

Bloody Sunday in the Quarters

The Quarters were a dangerous place on Sunday (7.02) with three violent crimes spread across the Viex Carré and the Marigny. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) reported a shooting on Bourbon, a cutting on Iberville, and a mugging on Decatur.

Man Missing After Swim in the Mississippi

The Mississippi River’s bends through New Orleans are a far cry from Tom Sawyer’s swimming hole. A 42-year-old man is missing after taking a plunge into the River near Jax Brewing according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD).

Two Teens Busted After Treme Car Theft

A man parked in the Treme before heading into the Quarter. A few hours later, the motorist had a broken window and the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) were arresting a pair of teens for a laundry list of charges.

Drinking Culture

La Vie Erin Rose

Gentle reader, a full glass of liquor can sometimes do the office of a shew stone. Sit quietly upon the bar edge and run a thoughtful hand along the crystal curvature. Peer within. And with enough drink, the soothsayer’s gift will be yours. So it was I found myself gazing into deep distances of gin. Images of the past week of Tales of the Cocktail emerged. Mysteries of the present summer lull. Auguries of days yet to come. All these I saw in a tumbler made cloudy and uncertain with ice at the Erin Rose. 

Gift Shop Guru Buys Club Oz

Drunk 1 and Drunk 2 will soon have another place to dance. Club Oz (800 Bourbon Street), the iconic French Quarter gay bar, is about to have a new owner, but said proprietor is not new to Quarter rats. Kishore "Mike" Motwani won a live auction in held by Judge Elizabeth Magner in the U.S. Eastern District Court of Louisiana. Motwani is a polarizing figure known for his empire of t-shirt shops downtown.

Dog Fight in Quarter

A bizarre fight about a dog took place in the French Quarter’s Three Legged Dog (400 Burgundy Street) on Saturday (7.18) night. The incident concluded when the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) arrived to arrest Richard Abbott for Aggravated Battery and Possession of a Firearm on the premises of an Alcoholic Beverage Outlet.
