We can’t believe that this year has gone so quickly. Twelve months ago, we didn’t even have screens in place, let alone movies to show. Now we’ve shown dozens of films to thousands of people and had a blast in the process. It has been a roller coaster ride and we don’t plan on getting off any time soon.


SINGFENCESROGUE ONEMANCHESTER BY THE SEA will be here for your New Years festivities. We had quite a busy weekend and look forward to having you visit us one last time in 2016. With all these amazing films playing, we are holding off on any new films until next year, but we do have one last present to share with you. Continue reading »

Oyster Patties (Kristine Froeba)

The holidays are upon us, and in New Orleans, that means food. Family recipe cards are being shared with the next generation and ingredients lined up on the table. In most New Orleans families, holiday dishes are passed down and remain unchanged for a century or more. Seafood is always part of the traditional New Orleans holiday dinner. Oysters are ordered, shrimp too. Lump crabmeat is likely to be on the grocery list. Continue reading »

Their traditional Mexican food, tequila and mezcal bar, and Latin Jazz performances make it the ideal spot for a evening out.

Artisan Breads from Breads on Oak (Kristine Froeba)

Artisan Breads from Breads on Oak (Kristine Froeba)

The Oak Street renaissance continues unabated. Like many older and abandoned shopping districts, the Oak Street Corridor has seen a shift back to commerce. Gentrification, new housing, and an influx of small businesses are flourishing on the new Oak. And, as this is New Orleans, restaurants and food hubs are the neighborhood anchors.

Breads on Oak, which opened in 2012, was one of the first of the new guard to plant itself on Oak. The European-style bakery has since grown from supplying restaurants to being a neighborhood hub, and locals can be seen walking through the doors at a brisk pace on any given day. Continue reading »
