Callin’ Baton Rouge

On a Saturday night in 1980, Jim Brown, a rising political star who was Louisiana’s newly elected Secretary of State, was driving back home to Baton Rouge from the town of Kentwood where he had addressed a civic club.

A Drink and a View

When you sit down at Rosie’s on the Rooftop at the Higgins Hotel, the menu may make you start to hum.

Off the Beaten Track

It’s silly, I guess, to say that summer makes me miss my mom because really everything makes me miss my mom.  But summer was our special time together, first for me and then later with my kids.  “Let’s go on an adventure!” she’d say on a random July morning, and I – never an adventurous […]
