6 Dead For Dinner
August 23, 2017

Anne Ohri's plan for the ultimate demise of her family is, as each member dies, for them individually to be wired into a chair at a dining table set up in a mausoleum on their family farm in Plaqueimine's Parish and be slowly reclaimed by the ocean as erosion destroys Louisiana. Strangely, that's kind of the plan for her $10m experimental school called New Harmony High. New Harmony is one of... Read More »

The Librocubicularist
August 16, 2017

You may have met a librocubicularist and not known it. You may stood next to one at Barnes & Noble. You might even be one.   According to singer-songwriter Alexandra Scott, a librocubicularist is a person who enjoys reading in bed. According to our crack Happy Hour research staff - Grayson Jernigan - the word is not in Websters' dictionary, but then Webster can't be expected to know everything. Alexandra, on the other...

Sober Phobia

Sober Phobia
August 9, 2017

The problem with being sober is waking up in the morning and knowing it's not going to get any better all day.

That's the philosophy behind being what pirate, leather-maker, and tour guide Jennifer Raven calls Soberphobic. If Jennifer is scared of what she'll find out about herself sober, that's about all she... Read More »

You can't judge a book by its cover. There's no way you could look at a bunch of random people sitting around a table at Wayfare in New Orleans and guess what you're about to find out about them. A lot of people know Constantine Georges in New Orleans. He was a U.S. Attorney, which in itself  is a pretty big deal. When he quit that he made what you'd have to... Read More »

Conceived In Fat City
July 26, 2017

Singer, Songwriter, playwright Paul Sanchez describes Fat City as "a polyester Bourbon Street."   Paul used to play in a band called Godot in Fat City back in the 1970's.

Paul says, though, that he sometimes went home with a woman - who slept with someone else. The reason this conversation even gets... Read More »

Not for want of trying. And not for want... Read More »

Facebook Is My Client
June 7, 2017

Mike Dillon is one of the greatest and most inventive percussionists in the USA, or probably anywhere. Mike chose to move to New Orleans for one simple reason: the music. He's been on an interesting path to get here, not so much geographically as spiritually and psychologically. Being a New Orleanian also means you can drop the pretense and the b.s. that comes with living other places. If you want to know... Read More »

He recovered quickly enough to play in an Ultimate Frisbee tournament a few days later but it turns out getting shot wasn't the only crazy thing he's done. He'd been shot once before and in between those two... Read More »
