A venerable yet humorous Mardi Gras spectacle, the greasing of the poles at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, delights again in its 43rd year!
This past Saturday night, there was a community event on my block. Or at least that’s what the people there told me was going on. I wouldn’t have known about it if I hadn’t been home and wondering what all the noise was. My first thought was that Treme was filming in the lot across […]

Tucked away in New Orleans East is Mary Queen of Vietnam Church, just a stones throw from the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility. Every year this close knit community of Vietnamese people celebrate their New Year by holding Tet Festival on the Church grounds.
