by Mary-Devon Dupuy

We already knew the people at Rouses were all about healthy and local eating, and now they’re proving their support for homegrown businesses by reaching out to  Louisiana’s beloved Hubig’s Pies. Rouses extended an invitation to any and all Hubig’s Pies employees who found themselves out of a job after last week's fire. Third generation grocer and company exec Allison Rouse hopes that the grocery store’s invitation will assist Hubig’s in their recovery process and get them back in their delivery trucks.

A Look at the CBD Rouses Newest Produce Source: The Roof



CBD - In November, residents got a new addition to their grocery selection when the new, swanky Rouses opened. Customers enter into a café with gelato and pastries, there’s a wide array of fine cheeses, and there’s even a sommelier to help you pair them with the best wines. On May 31, the grocery experience is growing even further, as these grocers will be the first of their kind to sell herbs grown aeroponically on their own rooftop.

by Brad Rhines

Don’t let her size fool you.  Though she weighs in at just under 100 pounds, Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas can put away more food than men twice her size, and she can do it faster.  Ranked as the #4 eater in the world by Major League Eating, an organization that oversees professional eating contests, Thomas once again ate her away to victory at the Rouses Crawfish Eating World Championship on Saturday at the French Quarter Festival.
