Pressure Drop: French Quarter Edition


Don’t plan on washing away your hangover on Sunday (10.11) afternoon if you live in parts of the Lower Quarter. The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced that the dreaded Pressure Drop will affect portions of the neighborhood tomorrow.


Ghost Boasts Begin


Halloween is creeping closer which means several weeks of bad puns on Twitter and saturation level tales of hauntings in the Quarter. Yahoo! Travel Editor-In-Chief Paula Froelich is taking the lead on the latter. The writer’s tour of haunted New Orleans is the subject matter of a video on the site this week


Burgundy Beatdown (Video)


A Project NOLA camera captured a French Quarter mugging as it happened. Early morning on Saturday (10.03), a man was attacked and then robbed by two women on the 800 block of Burgundy Street.


Drinking Culture

Celebrating A Year of Drinking (and Writing) at Cane & Table



 

Gentle reader, I have no more to write but a little – our time is at an end. O long year’s labor! And short year’s memory… drowned as rainwater in the ocean. But I will resist nostalgia as I might. For a celebration of 52 weeks of penning the "Drinking Culture" column is at hand. And sending out a call to those who would come, I determined to achieve the acme of my credit limit and begin anew the cycle of paying off my debts throughout the approaching busy season. Come with me now, back to a beginning of sorts. We’re off to see some old friends, meet some new, and drink and dine and generally blow-it-up at the finest all-around joint in the French Quarter: Cane and Table. 


Overnight Crime Report


The crime continued on Sunday (9.27) night and Monday (9.28) morning. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) reported two rapes, and armed robbery, and an aggravated battery in their Major Offense Log (MOL).


Big Wheel Keeps On Turnin'


The Chalmette Ferry may be out of service, but the folks from the Steamboat Natchez are rolling on the river. Today, Gordon Stevens, President & CEO of New Orleans Steamboat Company and Gray Line Tours announced that the company plans to build a second boat to add to their NOLA operations.


Stolen Cel Selfies Set Off Sirens


First rule of crime: always destroy the evidence. Hours after a French Quarter mugging, photos taken on a stolen phone began appearing on social media. Now, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) have been gifted visuals of the “persons of interest” in the robbery.


One Dead, Two Injured In Quarter Shooting


Three men were shot, one fatally so, in the French Quarter early on Wednesday (9.09) morning. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) said that the shootout may be the tragic outcome of an earlier argument.


Snatcher On A Cycle Sought


Summer is almost over, but the veterans know that there’s still time for a purse-snatching or two before Saints Season truly begins. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are on the hunt for “an older man” wanted for a snatching in the Quarter.


Cheat Sheet


There are lots of itchy ring fingers in the Crescent City today. Hackers followed up their 10gb data dump from Ashley Madison and parent company Avid Life Media with a second 20gb reveal today. And, the not-so secret list of cheaters and aspiring cheaters includes at least 36,000 New Orleanians.
