Greater New Orleans’ citizens are arguably the most flexible people in the country. We take turns with our fellow drivers on narrow cobblestone streets, we know the secret route to get to our house during parade season, and boil water advisories keep us on our toes. These are just a few quirks that make us curious to outsiders and unite us as New Orleanians.
Another reason for us to band together is coming to a road near you! We will be facing drainage system improvements and road construction for the next five years. Funds from FEMA as well as our Department of Public Works have been designated. Projects have been mapped through 2019, and we need to stay flexible (as we do) in the name of long-term infrastructure improvements!
Along with those experiencing personal inconveniences and dissatisfactions, our local businesses on these routes are taking a hard economic hit. New Orleans businesses need to feel our support and the impact of local dollars now at this critical time of business disruption because they are the backbone of our city’s culture, economy and character.

‘Debbie Does Doberge’ has found a storefront and has combined it with cocktails. That’s right: the Doberge darling’s cakes can now be purchased from a brick and mortar address. The concept is Cake, Cocktails, and Savories. The setting is the Lower Garden District—the old location of Eleven 79. The vibe is casual and comfortable. The décor brighter. There’s a light-filled dessert case. A dark whiskey lined bar. Shelves filled with carefully selected books and a staff of the hip and young variety.
If you didn’t know, ‘Debbie Does Doberge,’ is the local success story of couple Charlotte McGehee and Charles Mary IV. Local names.
