  1. Hope all good Rockwellians are keeping the City and people of New Orleans in their thoughts and prayers this evening. Looks like the Big Easy is about to catch the full force of nature's fury.
  2. Wynton Marsalis holds a special place in my heart, in that he's the most famous person (sorry, Jon 🍷) with whom I've ever had an extended conversation. On Jan 19, 1984, he performed a modern jazz concert at UNC-Charlotte - not long after his Grammy triumph - and my professor, my fellow student, and I drove two hours each way (from Clemson) to see it. Unbeknownst to the entire crowd, there was a "meet-and-greet" after the performance in a small room - we happened to overhear that it was occurring - and we got to speak with him, just the three of us, for what must have been twenty minutes - he even gave my professor (a fine, amateur horn player) pointers on his embouchure (you've never seen a Computer Science professor with a bigger smile on his face). Two of my greatest treasures are a Marsalis-autographed copy of the CDs linked to above (the second also autographed by drummer Jeff Watts). Enough background - this is a wonderful podcast: "Jazz Artist Wynton Marsalis Says Rap and Hip-Hop are 'More Damaging than a Statue of Robert E. Lee'" on washingtonpost.com
  3. The Cult of Crystal Hot Sauce - How New Orleans’s famous cayenne condiment conquered America, by Tim Ebner Nov 13, 2017, 10:02am EST, on eater.com.
  4. As my tribute to "Fats" Domino: my favorite song by him, not quite as popular as some of his biggest hits, "I'm Gonna Be a Wheel Someday":
  5. Location and Rates for Tonight - Website Hotel Royal is a pretty central location in French Quarter. It is a boutique hotel, multiple floors, with no elevator, but there's a small courtyard with a fountain. My bathroom only had a shower, there was no minibar, and no coffee/tea maker. The room is clean, but definitely on the small side. There was one chair but no writing desk. The area is usually quiet, unless drunks are walking by and screaming at the top of their lungs. The hotel has no bar. I had 2 small bottles of water in my room, but that was not replenished (even though I tipped the cleaning staff). It was 10 days before Fat Tuesday, also the NBA All-Star game was in town, and I booked late, thus ending up here. I think it was around $300/nt. The hotel is rated 3 stars by Trivago, the site I used to book this hotel.
  6. I thought we had a topic about this, but I can't find it. As heretical as this may sound, many people who aren't familiar with Louisiana (which even has a separate Wikipedia entry for "New France") use the terms "Cajun" and "Creole" interchangeably, usually just saying "cajun" for any cuisine that seems like it might have some New Orleans influence. Do we have any experts here that can compare and contrast these terms (using "Acadiana," maybe even "Baton Rouge," somewhere in the explanation) for those of us who don't have a clue? I'd say our average reader (which, in this case, would include me) is familiar with both terms, but doesn't really have a notion about or historical basis for their true meaning. I began having this conversation as a PM (private message) with one of our members, and quickly realized that it might be of great benefit to others. I've put in the Wikipedia links as a starting point, but don't know where to go from there. Incidentally, this thread would not exist had MC Horoscope not started this thread on "The Back Door." Take note, Herschel: This is how things happen here - what seems like a dead thread will slowly expand over time, creating others, and perhaps even exploding into a torrent of activity. There are no wasted posts here.
  7. Jeffrey Hunter was a ruggedly handsome actor, popular in the 50s and 60s, and best known as Captain Christopher Pike on "Star Trek." Hunter was on track for a long career when he suffered unfortunate, probably related, back-to-back injuries in 1968 and 1969: the first, a concussion sustained by an on-set implosion; the second, an intracranial hemorrhage incurred by hitting his head after a fall. More prolific in film than television, Hunter was in dozens of movies between 1950 and 1969, including his roles as Martin Pawley in "The Searchers" (1956), and Jesus Christ in "King of Kings" (1960).

  8. One of the first cookbooks I ever had was Louisiana Kitchen. I learned a lot from that book and would make the fat-laden dishes for special occasions. Making blackened redfish was always a challenge-- especially in terms of ventilation! I wish I had the chance to go to K-Pauls, but I did go to Commander's Palace for an over-the-top brunch once. Anyway, sad to see him go. He was a man who knew the meaning of "roulez bon temps!"
  9. I know many off us have followed Brett's writing dating back to his days at the City Paper. Looks like he will continue to write about the NOLA food scene through a fellowship from the Nieman Foundation for Journalism. NY Times food blog with the story.
