The Quarter's Very Public House: Molly's at the Market



Gentle reader, the New Orleanian is no great lover of leaving New Orleans. For some, the mere crossing of the Canal Street neutral ground is a Homeric expedition. And I had sojourned this past weekend in Baton Rouge. Out of that heart of darkness I returned, through lurking wetlands and in horror. I just needed one tiny drink in a place of comfort. Perhaps two draughts in a barroom where even the faces of those unmet were familiar. Friends, no more than three cup-borne constitutionals was all that I would require in Molly’s at the Market.

Fright Night

Halloween in the French Quarter (PHOTOS)



Hordes of costumed carousers took to the streets of New Orleans on Halloween, and, as ever, the center of the action was in the Vieux Carre. The annual Halloween parade at Molly's at the Market served as the focal point, but the crowds offered just as much to look at as the marchers. Brandon Robert's lens was onhand to take in the action:
