The French Truck coffee roasters will soon be setting up a walk-in shop in the Lower Garden District; the owners of Sylvain plan to start serving food at their new Barrel Proof bar across the street; and the Courtyard Brewery is now only about two months from opening as the corner of Magazine and Erato heats up over the summer, business owners said.

Also featured in the sale is jewelry from the estate of Mickey Easterling and several original works by New Orleans favorites such as Ida Kohlmeyer, George Rodrigue, Jose-Maria Cundin, George Dureau, James Michalopoulos and more.
To celebrate their 10th anniversary second-line, the Uptown Swingers will parade this Sunday where they all originally started: on Freret Street.

Put a fork in it. The Louisiana Landmarks Society is done. They’ve bought the farm, cashed in their chips, and kicked the proverbial bucket.
I could go on listing aphorisms signifying death or obsolescence, but the gist is that the Louisiana Landmarks Society has become a joke. They have abandoned their mission of helping preserve landmarks in favor of the far less laudable enterprise of hawking restrictive zoning for the benefit of local NIMBYs.
I have reached this conclusion following the society’s release of its annual “New Orleans Nine Most Endangered List,” which lists “at-risk historic properties.” The Louisiana Landmarks Society as a whole was founded in 1950 in order to promote historic preservation, and the list was envisioned as a means to highlight certain properties at risk of being lost.
After this year’s list, it’s clear that is no longer the society’s agenda.
