Joie d'Eve: Puddle Glitter

In my former life in Missouri, I attended kids’ birthday parties. They were usually held at skating rinks or indoor playgrounds, with apple juice for kids and grownups alike; over-sugared bakery cake; greasy, tasteless pizza; and awkward, tense conversations among parents who don’t know one another. The kids’ parties I’ve attended in New Orleans are […]

Modine's New Orleans: Full for the Holidays

Eating season is almost here. Everybody in New Orleans has been living off comfort food for the entire hurricane season. Nothing but red beans and fried chicken, Hubig’s Pies, French fries on poor boy bread with extra mynez, stuff like that. It ain’t what you call nutritious. But pretty soon we can eat real food. […]

Streetcar: Taken for a Ride in a Stretch Limo

Isn’t there a point when stretch limousines become buses disguised as limousines? Recently I noticed one of those vehicles going down Canal Street. Riding in a limousine once meant something special, but that was when a limo was a stately sedan. Nowadays, for every person that can be packed into a vehicle the less special […]

Speaking Out: Changing the Bayou Classic – A Proposal

We have a proposal for the annual Bayou Classic football game, which we think will be better for the event, the teams and the city.  Our suggestion is this: Have the game at the beginning of each football season rather than at the end. Each Thanksgiving weekend the game matching Southern University against Grambling University […]

Today, while the […]
