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)

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.

Stolen Cel Selfies Set Off Sirens
