Happy Hour

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.   

Don't Drive, Stay In School June 27, 2014

You think you've heard some s**t. Then suddenly it's happy hour and a couple of beers later you're going, "Stop. What? That really happened?"

So, wait till you hear this one. An Asian Jewish person enters a beauty pageant. Not so surprising, maybe. And wins. Okay, somebody's got to win. Where would you think this happened? California? How about Caddo Parish, Louisiana. That's around Shreveport. Sure, this hype is over-used thanks to Facebook, but it's what happens next that is truly astounding. You've got to hear this...

Not only is Ruth Navarre Miss Caddo Parish 2013, Jewish, Asian and a violist, violinist, harpist, and singer, she also weighs 110 or 111 pounds (you see if you can figure which one is right) and knows a lot about professional competition eating.

And Ruth can stomp her feet and wail. Also, she's single. That's another story.

Anyway, so you're driving around Caddo Parish, you've been up for 3 days tweaking, and you've got a load of meth in the car. Next thing you know, flashing lights in your rear view mirror, you get pulled over. The cops says, "Can I take a look in your car?" What do you do?

Call Miles Swanson.

 He might be down at Tattooagogo on Magazine Street discussing faux nipples, or cajoling his 110 (not 111) pound dog into behaving himself but he might also be in his law office. And if you want to be calling Miles from your car on your way home rather from jail, he's got some sage, free advice.

Miles came to New Orleans on a 2 week visit 8 years ago and is still here.

Honestly, you think you've heard some s**t. Listen to this happy hour...
