Kingfish 2022

Generous, durable and unflinching in character – the men of New Orleans who fit this archetype are known as Kingfish. They are the very essence of power and compassion and give more to others than to themselves. Whether sipping a sazarac or a beer; conducting a meeting or jumping into a secondline; spending time with […]

Mix It Up

  Even in cocktail-crazy New Orleans, dry (or damp) January is a thing.  For Minnesota transplant Nicole Draeger, taking a break from the party scene, especially leading up to Mardi Gras, is beyond necessary.   “New Year, new liver!?” said the project manager, whose go-to pub for socializing is the R Bar in the Marigny. […]

News + Notes: January 2022

Elton John If you’ve never seen rock legend Elton John live, now’s your last chance to do so in the Crescent City. The 74-year-old John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour will be his last. He will be performing in New Orleans for one night only on Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Smoothie King […]

Museum Worthy

The Arts and Crafts movement of the late 1800s to early 20th century arose when artists began producing hand-crafted items, sometimes with nature in mind, in response to the rise of mass-produced goods. The movement began in England but quickly spread to the United States, including to New Orleans and those teaching artists at H. […]

Matt Haines

When writer Matt Haines decided to put together a book focused on king cakes, he was surprised that no king cake-focused books existed that weren’t marketed towards children. Haines’ king cake saga started a few years ago when he decided to eat any type of “king cake” restaurants and businesses around the city provided. The […]

Kay Morrison

  January is traditionally a time for organizing and white sales. Put the two together and you get the opportune time for creating a linen closet or organizing an existing one. Professional organizer Kay Morrison of the Occasional Wife gave us the rundown on how to keep linens easy to access and eye-catching. First, Morrison […]

Tops of the Town 2022

As always, New Orleans has so many great things to shout out loud about. Even in a year with so many downs, we appreciate more than ever those places and things that rise to the top. Here is our list of the Tops of the Town as selected by our editorial staff. Readers were encouraged […]

Raise A Glass

Mickey Mullins’ “Hydrix” showcases complex herbaceous flavors in a low-proof cocktail perfect for guests of The Bower who may be cutting back on alcohol post holidays. The Bower works in partnership with Sugar Roots farm and much of its menu features produce from there. Creating this drink was a simple task for bar manager Mickey, […]

From the Editor

January often has most of the country taking a look at resolutions, lifestyles and healthy choices. But in New Orleans, we’re still ramping up our own holiday season. Fueled by king cakes, finger sandwiches, daiquiris and fried chicken, we put off making any big dietary changes until Lent. This year, Twelfth Night will launch a […]

Year In, Year Out

  It will surprise no one to know that I was a weird kid with weird interests, some of which I have carried into adulthood. My grammar obsession started early – my mom found an old typewriter at a yard sale and brought it home to me when I was about 8 years old. Delighted, […]

Tropic Chic

  It’s fitting that expectations are challenged at the mention of the name. Mister Mao is decidedly not a Chinese restaurant. Named in honor of their cat, owners Sophina Uong and William “Wildcat” Greenwell instead describe it as “a tropical roadhouse serving up global cuisine.” This catch-all phase is as good as any at encapsulating […]

Ultimate Indulgence

  Windsor Court Hotel recently added a new culinary and beverage team to deliver an innovative and refreshed experience within the hotel’s food and beverage outlets, notably The Grill Room and Polo Club Lounge. The top-notch team of industry professionals includes John Mitchell as director of food and beverage operations, Igor Krichmar as culinary director, […]

The new spaces offer guests year-round options for indoor/outdoor lounging and entertainment. Open to hotel guests, visitors and locals alike, the expansive terrace wraps around the building with seating […]

Crazy for Cauliflower

My sister and I recently had dinner at The Bower, a new-ish chic, contemporary restaurant on Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District. We shared a collection of memorable dishes from the well-crafted menu, and we were doing OK until the crispy cauliflower appeared. One bite from each of us and the knives came out, […]


When New Orleanians talk about their favorite doyennes of New Orleans cuisine, the late Leah Chase, “Queen of Creole Cuisine,” invariably comes up. A century earlier, however, the city’s “queen of culinary art” was Madame Bégué at H. Bégué’s Exchange, as seen here, at the corner of Decatur and Madison streets in the French Quarter.  […]

Celestial Beings

This ethereal wrap skirt is a star tracker’s dream come true. Not only is it festive and swingy, but if you happen to get bored during an evening out, you can play a game tracing your way from starbursts to suns and other mountainous terrains. Who knew a skirt could be so entertaining? Available at […]

Running for Office

This is a complicated story.  You know how everybody around here keeps a hatchet in the attic in case the Big One comes and we are – God forbid – trapped up there? Well, my brother-in-law Lurch decides to take it down temporarily, since hurricane season is over and he got some chopping to do. […]

The Municipal Auditorium

Dear Julia, We have been hearing all this commotion lately about Mayor LaToya Cantrell wanting to convert the Municipal Auditorium building into a City Hall. The resistance has been fierce, so it does not look like that will happen. Do you think the auditorium will ever go back to its previous use as a home […]

Greg K. Stock, CEO

While CEO Greg Stock recognizes his duty to inspire Thibodaux Regional’s vast family of employees, he often finds his own inspiration to lead comes from them.

Gulf Coast Fun

  Start the New Year off with a bang—hit the road for exciting experiences along the Gulf Coast as you take a break from work or bring remote work with you.
