| Music Board|| Benny Turner is fantastic - pmacneworleans on 12/14/14 at 4:18 pm|
New Orleans blues guitarist, and the brother of the late, great Freddie King. He just released a new album, Journey. He plays around N.O. semi-regularly, and usually puts on a Freddie King tribute every Jazz Fest, with another great N.O. blues guitarist, Marc Stone. Here's a clip from one of the tri...

From a bs $20m qb, to a coach under a 6 yr contract who appear to no longer give a shite., F This team. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Even Jim Kleinpeter is now calling out Miles - pmacneworleans on 11/16/14 at 4:04 pm|
he's the LSU beat writer for the TP. Normally, very reserved in his criticism. Calls the rationale Miles gave for sitting LF, "the dumbest" from Miles, yet. Also, says Jennings is not an SEC caliber QB and refusal to play Harris is holding entire team back. Wow.

Its their hi def station. You can pick it up from their website, or smartphone app if you don't have the right type of receiver. Thus far, no djs, just music. Very good eclectic mix of NO music. ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Hit Pizza Domenica and Lola's this weekend - pmacneworleans on 9/28/14 at 12:57 pm|
Sorry - no pix. But, both places were damn good. Had the chicken liver pate and a roasted carrot pizza at Pizza Domenica. Both were outstanding. We ate at the bar (were on limited time sine we were going to see The Subdudes) and the three people working behind the bar were nothing short of tremendou...
| Food and Drink Board|| The Franklin in the Bywater - pmacneworleans on 9/7/14 at 7:11 am|
Went there Fri night for dinner. Fantastic meal. Place is nicely adorned on the inside, with a sort of retro feel to the decor. Long bar occupies the left side of the room, with the dining tables assorted throughout the rest of the area. Only real complaint is the noise level - its loud! Got there a...

Only "news" is his twitter account on which he posted that NO is his new home and he's glad to be a Saint. Any info on the guy?...
| Music Board|| Alex McMurray - bard of New Orleans - pmacneworleans on 8/9/14 at 5:02 pm|
Singer/songwriter/guitarist. Sort of the Tom Waits of New Orleans. Great lyricist. has a few albums out in his own name, plus has recorded with bands such as: The Tin Men (guitar, sousaphone, washboard), The Valpariso Men's Chorus (sea shanties - often bawdy) and Royal Finger Bowl. Guy is dam good. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Marigny Brasserie - top 5 worst dining experience - pmacneworleans on 8/2/14 at 9:41 pm|
Avoid this place at all costs. While I appreciate the fact that they are employing local musicians, and attempting to return to their glory days when the co-owner of Three Muses, Dan Isses, was the chef, it is abhorrent. Went for dinner tonight. Place was not busy at all. Waitress was clueless. Adjo...

| Food and Drink Board|| Counter Market in FQ Closes - pmacneworleans on 6/12/14 at 4:13 pm|
It was the sandwich shop that opened next to The Kingfish (and was run by same people). With the summer doldrums upon us, could be the 1st wave of closings occurring. Wonder how The Kingfish itself is doing?
| Music Board|| New Orleans Funkified Goodness - pmacneworleans on 6/5/14 at 6:42 am|
Great show, filmed in Chicago in 1974, featuring Professor Longhair, Dr. John, The Meters and Earl King. I remember seeing the same show in 1975 at (of all places) the St. bernard Civic Center. Enjoy:
| Food and Drink Board|| Herbsaint - stop the hatin' on Link - pmacneworleans on 6/1/14 at 4:22 pm|
Went to Herbsaint on Fri night. Only a 5 top, so didn't expect the experience that some have had with larger groups, and it was simply an extraordinary experience. Reservations were for 6:30, and we were seated right on time. Started with cocktails (didn't get experimental - had a Pimm's Cup which w...

Sounds like it will be a mix of Meaux bar's old menu, and items from the short live Ste. Marie menu. Should be nice:

Had the chance to listen to the two new releases by Keb Mo (Bluesamericana) and John Mooney (Sun and Moon). Both are fantastic. Keb Mo's is with a full band and has some electric guitar in it, too. Mooney's is entirely solo, and is just him playing a dobro and singing Son House songs. Both are strea...
