It appears no day – not even Mother’s Day – is exempt from the senseless violent crime that continues to plague our city. Sunday afternoon shots were fired into the crowd at the annual Mother’s Day Second Line in the Seventh Ward leaving 19 people, including two 10 year olds, wounded and bleeding. It’s been […]
Finally!!! After 11 seasons, Top Chef is coming to New Orleans!!!
I for one, can’t wait to see where they film and the challenges they devise to run the chefs through the gauntlet. It promises to be a good season. I hope they plan accordingly and avoid the summer heat and the August-September hurricane watch.
