Fat City, New Orleans
Here is a clip of an independent film set in 1979 suburban New Orleans
I don’t know if this is a good thing or not – and I don’t know if it will ever come to fruition since so many federal transportation and roads infrastructure to states is tied to the drinking age being 21 years old.
And the movie looks like it might not be all that – although it claims to be a comedy which is always welcome. I don’t know if I particularly want to see it myself since I spent some time in these bars, in addition to bars all over New Orleans proper, during the early 80′s (((puts bag over head))). The Last Stop, Kenny’s Key West, Kaleb’s, South Side, The Showboat, Ski Lodge all revisited! The release of this is timely what with Jefferson parish rezoning this district recently to close all the bars by Midnight during the week and 1am on weekends.
Maybe it will play at Canal Place if it makes it that far.
Opinions on this welcome…
