Faubourg Wines Brings More Good Vintage to Marigny
by Emma Boyce
Even in a recession, there’s one product that's always sought after: alcohol. Faubourg Wines (2805 St. Claude) first opened its doors on Thanksgiving Day. Six days later owner Catherine Markel is still getting gratitude.
Holdup at Hi-Ho Lounge

Russian Rockers Capture Evil Genius
Though not apparent on the surface, there should be no mistake: the red menace is trickling into New Orleans. We all know the Russian mafia is on the loose in the Crescent City, but this threat has made itself more overt in recent days. In a naked attempt to eliminate those who would detect their presence, the Russians chose to strike first against our mad scientists, and their secret lairs. Just yesterday, NoDef received a bulletin from the Consortium of Genius' own drumbot that the local outfit's leader, Evil Dr. Milo T. Pinkerton III, had been captured by a band of Russians known as Commie Hilfiger.
Stonehenge Spotted on St. Claude
BYWATER - The vacant lot at the corner of St. Claude Ave. and Bartholomew Street has housed to a rumored Starbucks, an in-the-works grocery store and a one-time-only Night Market.

NoDef Nods: In, Out, and What's Next
Hot and Not in 2011, and Who to Watch in 2012
In 2011, a lot of the old maxims about New Orleans' resistance to change got thrown out the window. From Freret Street to Mayor Mitch's office to the Krewe of Chewbacchus, the City showed us that changing with the times, if not desired, is at the very least inevitable and therefore necessary. Waters around us have grown and all that. To be sure, many of the old vanguards of the city will live on past this period. But there are a few who came later that didn't live up to the hype. That doesn't mean they won't be back around again. As EWE taught us, you can always come back and marry someone who makes you look good. So, without further rambling, here's a list of who's in and who's out in 2011, and what to look out for in 2012.
