Pressure Drop: French Quarter Edition
It has only been a couple of years since the City installed new streets in the Quarter just in time for the Super Bowl. However, venturing into the Vieuz Carré, one can see several streets shredded over the past week. The City says that it’s all part of water work and will culminate with a one day drop in pressure.
Creole Tomato Fest in Photos
Photos by Andres Delmonte
The French Market was once again filled with South Louisiana's native cuisine this weekend. Thousands descended on the historic arcade for the Creole Tomato Festival this weekend. Despite some showers, the crowds two-stepped to the live music, enjoyed the eats, and drank some Louisiana libations. Andres Delmonte caught it all on camera.
A Look Into the Growing Farmers' Scene at the French Market
Strolling through the French Market, one can be forgiven for not remembering the era when locals would fill the covered arcades, hundreds of people seeking out their groceries for the day and just as many vendors filling in the stalls. That history began more than two hundred years ago, after all. The open air market has not been populated by farmers and fishers since the 1970’s. Instead, entering at North Peters and Barracks Streets, one can find ten dollar sunglasses and hats, maybe a fleur-de-lis stamped here and there, or names calligraphic onto a grain of rice. But the times, they are changing. Walk a little further and now you might discover a farmer selling actual rice.
Getting Well Done at Yo Mama's
Gentle reader, if someone’s mother is indeed responsible for this French Quarter establishment, the social services should have stepped in long ago and relieved her of progeny. It is a strange place, my friends. But the only place I can get my “fix,” as they say. Nothing else will do. So be resigned, and creep with me like a scurrilous junky to score a dram of mescal and a peanut butter hamburger at Yo Mama’s Bar and Grill.
The Wrong Man: NOPD Clears Suspect of Quarter Shooting
The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) says that they got the wrong man in the case of Friday’s (5.29) French Quarter shooting. After identifying 17-year-old Jerry Harris as the suspected gunman and obtaining a warrant for his arrest, police now say that he was not even in the area at the time of the shooting. The warrant has been rescinded.
Station Frustration: Bomb Scare at the 8th District
While the discussion about the need for added police presence to deter crime in the French Quarter continues, the boys in blues themselves were the target of lawbreakers. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Eighth District Station was subject of a bomb scare early on Saturday (5.30) morning.
Afternoon Shooting Rocks French Quarter
Update, 5.30: Police now say that Jerry Harris was the wrong man. He has been cleared and the warrant rexcincded.
With the start of summer, crime is once again on the rise in New Orleans. An double shooting rocked the French Quarter Friday (5.29) afternoon. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are now searching for 17-year-old suspect Jerry Harris.
Huck Finn's Under Fire After Racist Receipt
The novel Huck Finn has long stood accused of racism. Now, one French Quarter restaurant bearing the same name is feeling the wrath of social media after a racist receipt went viral on Thursday (5.22). Musical scion Gaynielle Neville posted a photo of a receipt given to her daughter (with Cyril Neville), Lircya Neville Branch, at Huck Finn’s Cafe (135 Decatur Street) bearing the word n***er to Facebook and outraged locals quickly mobilized against the establishment.
Police Hunt Quarter Carjackers
By Lucy Leonard
Caution: Carjackers may be closer than they appear. According to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD), a car with no side mirrors was hijacked in the Quarter early on Monday (5.18) morning.
Paul Gustings Talks Cocktails to Beat the Heat
Summer demands some libations to quench one’s thirst. So, NoDef turned to Empire Bar at Broussards’ Paul Gustings. The beverage director at the storied French Quarter destination offered up some suggestions, but as he likes to say, “I do everything contrary to everyone else.” Gustings on garnishes? “I don’t understand the point.” Gustings on tasting his products? “Why? I know when I’ve made a good drink.” Gustings on his one new-age affinity, acid phosphate? “It’s good for you.”
