The owner of Carrollton Station, Michael Miller, was arrested on a charge on attempted-arson Monday after the owners of The Willow (the new name of the former Jimmy’s Music Club) recorded surveillance video of Miller placing a lit earwax-candle in their building’s door, reports Monica Hernandez of WWL-TV. Miller describes the incident as a joke, while The Willow’s owner, Jimmy Anselmo, is also in the middle of a disagreement with neighbors over the operations of his club, Hernandez reports.

  1. Earwax candle. Sounds like some kind of Middle Ages medical device.

    Anyway, to me, neither of the bar owners in the above story comes across very favorably.

  2. When will the city and neighborhoods realize that late night bars are trouble and dangerous. Loud noise, trash and drunkeness……it’s a mess and it decreases surrounding property owners home values.

      I live and work on Freret and remember Friar Tucks- where the in-experienced and under-aged raged like pirates plundering because- “It’s New Orrrleans DUDE!!!! don’t like it- MOVE to the burbs where I’m from”
      Closed for 3 years… walk past Origami http://thenewfreret.com/ and your points proven, unfortunately underage = big $ and fines? They matter little with profits that HUGE- + think about all the cash landlords rake in renting to students, especially when they write the rules – https://uptownmessenger.com/2012/07/uptown-university-area-slated-for-tax-free-art-sales-historic-renovation-tax-credits/
      That said- I like neighborhood bars and music- lets listen to our demographics and run at Jane Jacob’s- DIY fixes and make this place so damn cool we recruit back a middle and other newbies that pay property tax. Not just drunken college tourists… Lastly bitchin don’t fix squat… pictures speak a thousand words- so when planks are being walked at 3:27 am- See it, shoot it, and report it…
      Best from 5110 Freret,

  3. Jimmy’s has been around for well over 25 yrs. The neighbors knew what they were getting when they moved to this location.
