Today in NOLA 9.11.17


Today kicks off the citywide culinary celebration Restaurant Week, so dine on a dime at NOLA's top spots. Mayoral candidates will gather to discuss their policies as they relate to the city's music industry. Alt rockers Modest Mouse perform at The Civic, while Instant Opus returns to the Hi-Ho. On this day in 1722, the state’s first recorded hurricane wiped out New Orleans. If you're looking for something to do tonight besides find a good T.V. to watch the New Orleans Saints vs. the Minnesota Vikings in the season opener, then read on for more details below. 


Today in NOLA 9.7.17


Today, educate yourself about the city's housing issues ahead of the fall election with a forum featuring mayoral and City Council candidates. A local maker's market sets up shop in the Carver Theater. The Orpheum screens a 1970s classic, while Metro Station stops along their 10th anniversary tour for a show at The Willow.  On this day in 1899, pioneering traditional jazz drummer "Little" Joe Lindsay was born in New Orleans. He is perhaps best remembered for his work with Louis Armstrong, which began as early as 1916-1917 and carried on throughout both of their careers. Now, more to do this Thursday.

Get to Know Michael Bagneris, the Man With a Solid Campaign to Be the Next Mayor of New Orleans



It would be a mistake to underestimate Michael Bagneris. Sure, he faces 17 other candidates in his bid to become Mayor of New Orleans — including his two leading opponents, up-and-coming political stars Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell and former Judge Desiree Charbonnet — but Bagneris makes a strong case to take over the highest office in the Crescent City. Read on for NoDef’s interview with the mayoral candidate, where he sounds off on the city’s safety, job markets, and his dreams of New Orleans in the future.

The Race Is on - Ready, Set, ... Wait A Sec!



The contenders vying to become mayor of New Orleans are now set. Michael Bagneris, LaToya Cantrell, Desiree Charbonnet, and Troy Henry are just four of the 18 people interested in leading the city into the next decade of this 21st century, a city struggling to reconcile its movement forward with its complicated past – and who better to do that than candidates with ties to the old political orders of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, right?
