Closed Quarter: Mardi Gras Traffic Restrictions
Driving during Carnival is a bad idea. Driving in the Quarter during Carnival is virtually impossible. Beginning at 6:00p.m. today (2.13), the City will enact the annual lockdown of the Vieux Carre.
Patois' Reef Mixes a Modified Vieux Carre (Video)
Uptown eatery Patois (6708 Laurel St.) recently launched a new late-nite Sinatra-esque lounge. With the exacting standards of the Chairman of the Board staring down at them with piercing blue eyes, the establishment raised the bar on their already excellent bar program. General Manager Lorenzo Reef taught NoDef a trick or two about mixing a modified Vieux Carre.
DUCK You! Operators, Businesses, Residents Spar Over Tourism
Tuesday morning's City Transportation Council on permit regulations was no duck soup. At the Circus, tour operators proposing amphibious "Duck" rides based on the Toulouse St. Wharf verbally sparred with residential and business opponents. The usual issues including proposed routes, traffic impacts, and noise pollution evoked the usual impassioned debate. Additionally, the Duck Boat's unique nature allowed for a few extra shots from the blind; the vehicles were characterized as both amusement park rides on one side, and death traps on the other.
A Company Man
Newly Edited Memoir of 18th Century Clerk Offers Rare Peek Into Historic New Orleans
In 1730, Marc-Antoine Caillot arrived in New Orleans to record his observations about Louisiana, or 'New France,' as he knew it. In 'A Company Man,' modern Crescent City residents get a peek into their hometown in the 18th Century and see that much of the lure of 18th Century New Orleans persists into the 21st.
Vintage Parade: Krewe of Cork Marches in FQ Today
by Sarah Esenwein
Today Grand Marshall Jean Charles Boisset will expertly saber a champagne bottle (lobbing the top off with a large sword) at the Court of Two Sisters. This will christen the kick-off of Krewe of Cork’s (Lucky) thirteenth year. You will see them winding through the French Quarter, clad in their signature purple and gold wine-themed costumes, tossing trademark throws and swilling the nectar of the Gods. Being a walking parade is a very special quality to the founder, Patrick von Hoorsbeek as “Connecting with the people is most important.”
Car-nival: NOPD Releases Passes for Vieux Carre Residents Wednesday
Carnival is a mixed bag for New Orleanians, especially those who live in the thick of the crowds. Unless they’re driving an ice truck, residents and business owners along the route actually need to get police-issued passes to access their own homes by car. The time for French Quarter residents to pick up their passes is tomorrow, at the 8th District Police Station.
Good Mourning: No Sashay at Hermann Grima House's Funeral Tour
Normally, our funerals are all brass and bombast. But, once upon the 1800s, things were a bit more somber. As All Hallows Eve approaches, the Vieux Carre's historic Hermann Grima House take us back to those times by dressing up the historic chateau for a funeral. This Friday, just in time for Halloween, the House features a special tour that lets the death-eater-uppers among us commune with the last rites of yore. Sure, there will be shrouds and mourning china. But what would a funeral tour be without jewelry made from the hair of the deceased, and a full rundown of a seance? The fun starts at 6. Ticket info here.
Quarter Rejects New Tax
Consider those visions of swat teams jumping out of St. Louis Cathedral turrets squelched. For now, the French Quarter will not be a security district.
Vieux Carre residents vanquished a plan Saturday that would've enlisted a private company to provide increased security in the historic neighborhood.
