Landmark Status for St. Charles Streetcar?
The New Orleans City Council gave their official endorsement Thursday of the St. Charles Streetcar Line's application to become an official National Historic Landmark. Not just a place where Paul McCartney will serenade unsuspecting football fans, the streetcar line is featured on postcards and often filmed and cited as an obvious cultural representation to the City of New Orleans.
Councilwoman-Led Roundtable to Consider Mardi Gras Parade Route Partitioning
Following up her plea to police on behalf of blockaded Uptown paradegoers, City Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell will be holding a roundtable discussion on Saturday, March 30. The issue at hand is the intrusion of ladders and tents, as well as the general partitioning of neutral grounds, which impedes the rights of all citizens to watch the floats go by from an advantageous angle.
Drug Store Derelicts: NOPD Seeks Rite Aid Robber, CVS Liquor Lifter (VIDEO)
by Mary Kilpatrick
Even criminals need to make drug store runs. Over the weekend, one such pharmacy fugitive learned that if you bring a gun, you get to skip the long lines. The New Orleans Police Department is searching for the man involved in the Saturday morning armed robbery at a Garden District Rite Aid. A second suspect who likes to-go drinks for free at a Hollygrove CVS also made the cop's list.

African-American Krewe Rolls First on St. Charles
While Zulu and their golden coconuts tend to steal the spotlight as the last and oldest African-American parade to round out the Carnival season, no one can forget about the first float out of the gate. For more than 15 years, the all African-American Krewe of Oshun has rolled down the Uptown streets, kicking off the carnival season with their mix of vibrant floats and African inspired themes.
St. Charles Ave. Daiquiri Shop Loses Alcohol Permit
There's one less place to get daiquiris on St. Charles Ave. tonight. Daiquiri Place Cafe, located at the corner of St. Charles and Thalia St., lost its alcohol permits by a vote of the City's Alcohol Beverage Control Board. City government targeted the spot as a nuisance bar because of violations of a 2007 agreement, which required the bar to provide security, pick up litter and close at a prescribed time.

New Orleans Transit Mostly Up and Running After Isaac
As New Orleans gets back to work today, most public transportation is back up and running on land and air, but gaps remain by River. The Louis Armstrong and Lakefront Airports opened over the weekend. As of today, all RTA bus routes are back in service, with the exception of one detour on the Algiers Loop, which will head off Patterson to Elmira, and make its way to Veret on Opelousas, instead of its normal route. Streetcars are also back in service down Canal Street, but buses remain on the St. Charles Avenue route. The Riverfront line is also out of service. Then there is the matter of ferries.
The Fresh Market Opens on St. Charles Ave.
As foretold to us by the Fresh-masters, the transformation of that one-time funeral home into a grocery store at the corner of St. Charles and Louisiana is complete.
