November 9, 2016

It's A Good Start

It's A Good Start

Judge Laurie White is the Chief Judge at New Orleans Criminal District Court. Because that's an elected position, Judge White refers to herself as a "politician" but nobody else in the bar is buying that. The common wisdom of a bunch of drinkers seems to be that if you are elected to a position that is involved in an activity other than politics you're not strictly a politician. Look at it...

Kim Carson, the Queen of New Orleans Honky Tonk, describes the difference between New Orleans Hony Tonk and the rest as, "New Orleans is Honky Tonkier." Kim ought to know. She plays her NOLA H-Tonk all around the world. Spending more than half of the year out of the country takes its toll on other parts of Kim's life, as it does with other musicians, but apparently fewer of them are... Read More »

Don't Say Hi
October 19, 2016

If you see someone you think is attractive on social media and you'd like to get to know them, the one sure-fire way to get shut down is to say "Hi."

The Louisiana Senate Debate Cocktail Hour
October 12, 2016

This is the story of how Happy Hour came to endorse Kaitlin Marone for Senate. Normally we describe this show as random conversation with people who have nothing in common. Today our guests do have something in common. They are running for the United States Senate. The election is November 8th, the same day as the presidential election. Although we can’t promise you the same level of dramatic fireworks as a presidential... Read More »

Her husband, some days or maybe weeks later, decided to check Twitter out for himself after his mom told him she'd been reading some pretty weird stuff about him.

Pecan Penwilly: Not a Stripper
August 17, 2016

Let's get this straight: Boyfriend takes her clothes off on stage but she's not a stripper. As a matter of fact she's not any kind of noun. She's a verb.   Boyfriend is a person for whom stripping is an activity much like other activities that one performs but doesn't define you. Unless, perhaps, you're a teacher. Okay, yes, it's confusing but the simpler facts are we've caught BF on the eve... Read More »
