"There is seriously a lot of work ahead of us!"



Bobby Jindal is no longer the governor of Louisiana. On Monday (1.11), John Bel Edwards was sworn in by Chief Justice Bernette Johnson as the Pelican’s State’s latest governor in a ceremony on the steps of the state Capitol. An uplifiting speech calling for unity and change then followed.


Andrew Jackson & American Orange Punch


This week, NOLA is celebrating the bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans and feting Andrew Jackson for his leadership in the fateful fight. Jackson’s rise from the mud of Chalmette to the muddy carpets of the White House is well documented. But what about Jackson’s favorite drink? After a quick consultation with Nick Detrich of Cane & Table (1113 Decatur Street), NoDef learned about Jackson’s affinity for American Orange Punch and the pivotal role that the beverage played at Old Hickory’s inauguration.

Mayor Mitch!


So, it's official! Nagin is Na-Gone! This morning, Mitch Landrieu was sworn in as the city's 70th mayor. Spirits and expectations were high at today's ceremony... so, were fears. T-P live blogged it.
