NoDef Talks to Gambino's About King Cakes, the Saints, and Trad vs. Filled



Carnival season is officially here, and bakers all over the city are working hard to feed the festive masses. NoDef talked to Gambino’s Bakeries owner Sam Scelfo about Twelfth Night sales, traditional vs. filled, and new flavors for 2014.

Exclusive: Saints' Akiem Hicks Talks Mardi Gras, SB XLVII


New Orleans has been swallowed into one massive SuperBowl countdown as stages go up, construction signs come down, and traffic goes sideways. Verizon wireless took a break from supplementing the network, to launch a countdown of their own, NOLA 10. The project honoring 10 super bowls in town, features ten events hosted by footballers such as the Breesus and a serious public service project. However, NoDef's highlight came Sunday at a Championship viewing party hosted baby Ronnie Lott when we spoke to Saints Defender, Akiem Hicks about sports, NOLA, and Mardi Gras.
