Finger Lickin' Wings Closes, 10th Ward Buck Talks

The New Orleans Film Society is holding the 23rd annual New Orleans Film Festival from October 11 to October 18, featuring some of the best films from around Louisiana and the world. Throughout the week, the festival packs in more than 200 films, 70 directors, panels and parties into 8 days of cinematic adventure.


While You Were Out


The city is pulsating and the NOPD's focus lasers are out, but let's face it: Coming back to work after the holidays leaves a little lag in the swag. Plus, you feel out of the loop. So, allow us to catch you up some non-football happenings. Despite a 2011 murder rate 14 percent higher than 2010, Chief Ronal Serpas talked about his confidence in the police force. But the City didn't make it 24 hours into 2012 without a homicide. Before that, a 40-car pileup killed 2 and closed I-10 in the East for a long time. Click through for news that's not about death.
