Big Charity

Go see it. (Once it gets distribution.)


In the ladies' room:

"You white? You not white.

"You was rollin' on the dance floor."

Apparently I don't dance that bad.

No comment

A different type of selling feature

Southern charm

Me: Wow, sir, you look like a million bucks. 

Sir: Just a half million.



Is always fun, and the service is always amazing.

They more than doubled their size when they expanded in April, and it's a good thing they did. (Where else would all those public health conference attendees go?)


Saved me yesterday.

First, I tried to eat lunch at Butcher, but about half of the 13,000 attendees of the public health conference seemed to have the same idea. 

The other half went to Cochon. 

So against my better judgment, I decided to try lunch at Sobou. "Against my better judgement" because a) it is in the Quarter and b) it seems to be popular more for its creative cocktails than anything else.

That said, there is something to be said for 25 cent martinis.

The bartender was so unpleasant, though, that I left. And hopped on the Magazine bus, since it happened to happen along.

But it is hard to eat in this town on a Monday, and the lunch hour was drawing to a close.

Atchafalaya was the only restaurant open, and they were about to close, but the lovely barkeep promised me she'd find a way to get me fed.

And she did.

She recommended the crab cake with eggs hollandaise (with Crystal - spectacular). 

The DIY Bloody Mary bar was fun, too.


Somehow, Mondays at Vaso

Now involve line dancing.

I kind of like it.

Tonight also involves the 103 year anniversary of the Omega Psi Phi. 


Two dances down,

one to go.

I second lined with the Women of Class uptown this afternoon,

And then I went to the Rock n' Bowl for some Cajun Fais Do-do

And got an award.


Now I am heading out to catch the Hot 8 at the Howling Wolf. Not bad for a Sunday.


I keep failing

To find brass in the clubs on Frenchmen, but I keep succeeding in finding brass on the street. 

Small mercies and all that.

Just walk around long enough

And you'll happen onto another second line.

This one's a wedding.

Just another birthday girl in the Crescent City

Jumbalaya - R Bar

All you need to know, but do get there at 6:30 sharp. It will all be gone by 7.

'Cause it's good. (And free.)
