A new performance space hopes to open on Freret next month; the late-night pizza at Dough Bowl on the edge of Tulane’s campus now has new owners, and Dat Dog’s Magazine Street location will celebrate its grand opening Wednesday.
Visitors to the Freret Street festival got a sneak preview of Gasa Gasa, the performance space in the 4900 block that hopes to open by the end of May, reports NOLA Defender. The concept has evolved at least in name since it was introduced to Freret neighbors in late 2011 as the Sunhouse, and its owners invoke the old neighborhood coffee shop Breezy’s in the project’s lineage.
At the corner of Broadway and Zimpel streets, soon to be the location of Tulane’s newest dormitory, the Dough Bowl pizza place adjoining The Boot bar has been bought by the owner of Fresco’s, reports The Tulane Hullabaloo. Despite hundreds of potential customers congregating nearby on many evenings, sales were dropping amid new competition around the university — and the new management tells The Hullabaloo that changes will focus more on business practices and less on the menu.
Finally, Dat Dog is planning a grand opening celebration at 5 p.m. Wednesday for its new location at 3336 Magazine, writes Adriana Lopez of NOLA Vie in “15 things you probably didn’t know about Dat Dog.”
