Too much festing on your plate this spring? There is always art. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) are both gearing up for a couple annual events.
Earlier this week, a man on this West Bank allegedly pulled out a semi-automatic rifle and opened fire. Today, the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) ID’d a suspect in the incident.
Having seen the spirits of New Orleans loosen even the tightest of tongues, your author was inspired to begin interviewing interesting people after a few libations. 'Six Beers and the Truth' is a series wherein the interviewee has enjoyed six beers before giving the interview. While some are emotional, some are funny and some are shocking...they are all candid and honest. Please enjoy 'Six Beers And The Truth with Eric Zurcher.

Gentle reader, at the six month point of my chronicle, I found myself wondering again at the qualia of a good local bar – its essential nature. A half bottle of Pernod later, I declared myself unequal to the task. Mine is but to see and to say, and no more. So it was that this sunny Sunday past, I walked into a sleepy corner of Bayou St. John. My friends, in lieu of pontification at this milestone, I offer my thousand-odd words as picture of a place: this, an abstract of a neighborhood, Pal’s Lounge in Mid City.
