HAPPY HOUR is a cocktail-fueled 60 minutes of random conversation with folks who have nothing in common, other than being New Orleanians in a bar. Featuring extraordinary New Orleans musicians playing live, host Grant Morris and sidekick deluxe Andrew Duhon.
One of the unique charms of New Orleans living is the drive-thru daiquiri store: a sort of Burger King of Booze where a family of four (all over 21 of course) can, for a modest sum, get tanked up on sweet, frozen cocktails dispensed from what look like washing machines.
Can you imagine living in a New Orleans where open liquor containers and drive-thru daiquiris were banned, like, god forbid, the rest of the country? No way, right? Instead of just imagining this hellish future, Jeremy Thompson has taken up arms to fight against it.
Elizabeth Bates ain't lying down and taking it no more neither. A full 5 feet tall, Elizabeth got so exasperated at not being able to find clothes that fit, or having to buy them then pay to get them altered, that she started selling them herself. The Petite Shop is the world's first e-commerce site selling clothes specifically designed for women 5'4" and under. Elizabeth moved back to New Orleans from San Diego to be a part of The Idea Village's business incubator program, and to leave the memory of the cheating SOB behind.
Miss Mec slept through her last appearance on Happy Hour. This time she decided to show up with a sock on her head and scant clothes on her body. Her cpaitvating sultry voice is as sexy as ever and she is so damn charming that even her stories of incestuous shoe theft make her seem adorably cute.
Andrew Duhon plays a work in progress, a beautiful song about a man's heart and a runaway train.
