Working out alone and with the same machines every other day is boring and causes a lack of motivation. Without change in the routine, you become stagnant and your goals get further and further away from you. At Salire Fitness on Magazine Street, we understand that not everyone likes gyms or has an interest in doing the same fitness exercises day in and day out. That is why we have developed one the highest rated group fitness training classes in the city. Our NOLA Boot Camp is perfect for people of all fitness levels because we use multiple, proven methods of stimulating your muscles and your interest! It is also perfect for those who love to get out in the great Outdoors and the beauty of City Park.
The 17th “PechaKucha” night in New Orleans — which features speakers who offer brief presentations on a variety of topics — focus on the theme of “Lost and Found” this week at Courtyard Brewery in the Lower Garden District.
While navigating Uptown New Orleans is likely to remain challenging — to put it charitably — until the final major drainage projects finishes in 2018, one important thoroughfare will soon become a viable option again as Freret Street begins to reopen on both ends of its commercial corridor in the coming weeks.
First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans will be hosting its inaugural Rummage Fest this Saturday, featuring all sort of merchandise for sale, as well as live piano music and a bake sale.
The $664 million that the state House of Representatives dedicated Thursday toward higher education in Louisiana is both a major accomplishment in its own right, a trio of state lawmakers from New Orleans said — and yet still only a start toward preserving the state’s most essential services amid a major budget deficit.
“There are holes in the budget that need to be filled,” said state Rep. Walt Leger. “We made major steps in the right direction today, we’ve got a long way to go.”

Shreds of charred red, white and blue fabric still sat on the scorched doorstep of an Octavia Street home on Tuesday afternoon, after a fire apparently started on an American flag temporarily displaced the family from their home and left neighbors both baffled and disturbed.
Our usually right-on-point Inspector General Ed Quatrevaux has been in the news twice this week — first with his remarks that maybe more, better-paid police is not the answer to our crime problems and then about his proposed “divorce” with Police Monitor Susan Hutson. Now it is true that Quatrevaux is white and that Hutson, most of the police and the people they are sworn to protect are not. Does Quatrevaux just see things differently or is there more to his feelings than meets the eye?
Damage to lines in the Gert Town area very briefly knocked out power Wednesday afternoon to a wide swath of neighborhoods around Carrollton in Uptown and Mid-City, but power was quickly restored, Entergy officials said.
Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, who received a Pulitzer Prize for reporting with Carl Bernstein on the Watergate scandal, will be addressing Loyola University’s Class of 2015 during the spring commencement ceremony at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Saturday.

In 2002 local musical impresarios Benny Grunch and the Bunch released a song entitled “Ain’t Dere No More.” In it the group collectively bemoan, as only the natives may, the loss of landmarks around the New Orleans metro area. It played in my head over these last few days as I watched yet more apparently salvageable dwellings, in this case double shotguns, meet their untimely demise in the 2400 block of Cadiz. What was more upsetting to me was that their demolition was supposedly not going to happen, and the structures were to be saved by their new owner Arnold Kirschman. Even be occupied by him. Except guess what? They gone.
State Reps. Walt Leger, Helena Moreno, and Sen. JP Morrell invite the public to get updated on the current legislative session through a cocktails and politics event Thursday at Publiq House, with a suggested donation in support of Kingsley House.
