Revelator 6.37

Coffee Mecca Opens in Warehouse District



A few years ago, some New Orleanians were talking about coffee, the South, and cuisine. From that conversation, the Revelator Coffee Company was born. Shortly thereafter Revelator was operating successful shops in Birmingham, Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee. On Tuesday (6.30), Revelator is coming home to NOLA, and opening a location at 637 Tchoupitoulas. 


Early Morning Crash On Tchoup' Claims Life


An early morning accident on Tchoupitoulas Street ended tragically on Monday (12.08) morning. Police say that a single vehicle accident around 2841 Tchoup resulted in one fatality, the arrest of the driver, and a road closure.


Construction to Chop a Lane on Tchoup


Driving in the CBD and the Warehouse District is only fun if you’re atop a tractor and pulling a parade float. However, traffic conditions in the area will be even worse for the next month. The Sewerage & Water Board of New Orleans (SWBNO) announced new closures on Tchoupitoulas slated to begin Monday (10.6).


Man Killed in Tchoupitoulas Double Shooting


A man was killed, and another man was injured on Tchoupitoulas St. Tuesday evening, according to NOPD. About 7 p.m., the man was found dead in the River Gardens area, near the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Felicity Sts. He was lying on the sidewalk near an unoccupied vehicle that was stopped in the lane of traffic, according to Officer Garry Flot, a New Orleans police spokesman.


Stooges Brass Band to Hit Rock Bottom Once a Week


The Stooges Brass Band found a new, but familiar, home for their Thursday night show—the Rock Bottom Lounge (3801 Tchoupitoulas St.). Beginning this Thursday, March 28, the band will return to the Tchoup spot for their weekly residency, giving second liners and music loving locals alike something to step out about.


Mardi Gras Rewind: Marching Bands Battle Before Bacchus

For residents of the riverside neighborhoods in Uptown, the noise of the port is a part of life. Not much can overpower the squealing wheels of the freight trains or the broad tones of a ship’s horns. Except the sounds of a parade, of course. On the Carnival nights when the superkrewes of Bacchus and Orpheus roll, the stretch of Tchoupitoulas between Napoleon Avenue and Bordeaux turns into a full-on battleground for the marching bands getting ready to march down St. Charles Ave.  


Black Friday Walmart Protest Seeks to Expose Real Wally World


by M.D. Dupuy

It didn’t seem much like Black Friday at Wal Mart on Tchoupitoulas this afternoon. Customers had their choice of parking spaces, lines were one and two deep, and no one was scrambling for the last discounted TV or kitchen appliance. “Black Friday,” actually began Thanksgiving night at 8pm, and not everyone was happy about the extended bargains. Beginning at 11am, approximately 40 people stood in solidarity with Walmart employees, demanding fairer practices and scheduling.


Midsummer Movie Nights Put NOLA Nights, Southwestern Latinos on Big Screen


Latinos in the Southwest and a night out in New Orleans are the topic of a pair of film events that are filling up weekend calendars. Last Friday's floods washed out plans for an outdoor screening of Tchoupitoulas at the Old U.S. Mint. But organizers are giving it another go this week. On Saturday night, a series of short films look at the Southwest through roosters, clowns and tough guys.


Today in New Orleans: 7.20.12


Today, we dance in the streets again for Uncle Lionel Batiste to rest with a proper jazz funeral. Also, the opening night of Jim Fitzmorris’ “Urban Education Smackdown” at the Shadowbox Theatre, and the outdoor premier of the Ross Brothers’ film Tchoupitoulas at the Old U.S. Mint. On this day in history, vocalist Brazella Briscoe of the Zion Harmonizers was born in New Orleans (1948), and rapper Juvenile was arrested at his Mandeville home for 3 counts of simple battery and 5 counts of aggravated assault after bringing five dancers home for his housewarming party (2000).


NoDef Speakeasy: July 17-22


by Cate Czarnecki

What with Bastille Day celebrations and that yearly San Fermin fete, the city literally ran wild this past weekend. Time to get your head right with a few healthy, holistic activities that require a little more mental floss than sprinting through the French Quarter in an oversized men’s white button-down and red sash. The docket is chock-full of films, author readings and lectures this week, including the New Orleans premier of Bill and Turner Ross’ documentary film Tchoupitoulas outside at the Old U.S. Mint on Friday. Plus, there's food, feminism and a couple Kims. Break out the popcorn and prescription glasses and we’ll see you in the streets.
