Bayou Corne isn't the only spot in Louisiana that was engulfed by a mysterious disturbance from below this week. Early Thursday evening, Adams Street runneth over near the corner of Maple as water poured forth from leaking pipes through cracks in the pavement. The Sewerage and Water Board truck arrived at about noon on Friday. They were cheered. As for the cause of the leaky pipe, "it was just its time," a SWB Supervisor said.
Maple Street Trades College Bar for Japanese Bistreaux
By the time college is back in session, Maple Street will likely have a new Asian food option come the fall. Kakkoi Japanese Bistreaux received approval to serve booze from the City Council, setting up a late August opening date. The restaurant - whose name means "awesome" or "cool" in Japanese - is located in the former location of Doors Bar, which was one of a few college bars in the area that caught the eye of city enforcers for underage drinking.
Independent Tulane Stadium Forum Planned
Plans for the new Tulane Stadium continue to be the topic of community forums this week. After the city hosted a trifecta of meetings about the planned on-campus football stadium, a Carrollton neighborhood assocation will hold its own sound-off, featuring a Tulane official and an opponent of the stadium as the presenters. Sounds like they read that article about bringing back Crossfire. After all, James Carville is just down the street.
Burglary Binge Halted by Higher Powers
While stealing from three churches, a bar and various houses, Floyd Williams may have thought no one was watching. But he failed to account for new devices on NOPD cruisers that reads license plates. That's how the cops tracked him down, but NOPD Lt. Frank Young conceded the penalty for burglarizing houses of worship was partially out of their jurisdiction. “This guy’s going to have to answer to somebody bigger than a judge,” he said.
City Council Crushing on Costco
Turns out Costco doesn't only want to open up shop here so they can lavish us with free samples. After the Big Box giant opens on S. Carrollton, they'll get about $5.8 million in infrastructure covered by the City. The satisfaction of getting to vote to give away this money was enough to cajole City Council President Jackie Clarkson to call the retail giant a "role model" on Thursday. Equally, Councilwoman Susan Guidry's love for Costco lead her to declare that the store had the best hot dogs in the city. But this time Councilwoman Diana Bajoie was quick to reel things back in, reminding Guidry about the existence of a little Freret spot called Dat Dog.

Broadway Block Sees Second Frat House Fire in a Year
One section of Broadway has been seeing more scorchers than ragers over the past year. A Friday fire damaged an abandoned frat house that is next door to the site where a separate blaze broke up a different brotherhood's party last fall. Friday's fire was at the former Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity house, which was once known among Tulane students as the Sammy house.
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.

Knife Wielding Bicyclist Robs Man Walking Dog
Walking the dog turned into a violent encounter for one man Monday morning in the Uptown University area. About 10:15 a.m., a bicyclist riding a "weathered" beach cruiser attacked the man on Calhoun Street from behind, cut him in the arm with a small knife and demanded the man throw his wallet on the ground. The assailant then picked up the wallet and fled. More details at Uptown Messenger.
