It’s nearly 2am and she cannot sleep because of a dull throbbing in her head. She can’t let her thoughts rest because they refuse to stop racing. She knows she could take her medication and go through her days sedated like she used to. She would rather be dead than numb. This dull throbbing pulses […]
Here are my 7 Saints players for Big Easy Magazine that I recommend all ‘Who Dats’ keep a close eye on, while watching the Black and Gold in action on the Florida “First Coast” this Thursday Night.
Between climate change and oil spills, what was once solid land flourishing with trees is mostly water and mud. Contributing to the problem are the nefarious Nutria, which is where Thomas Gonzalez and crew come into play, collecting $5 per collected tail bounties from the state for reducing the population of these pesky rodents.
It’s no secret that the roads in New Orleans are in bad shape. Drive a few blocks in any direction, and you’ll come across one of the city’s famous, “car-killer” potholes. Every few weeks, a story pops up – usually something humorous about the way a local has attempted to draw the city’s attention to the problem on their street.
Joe Boals updates us on New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board issues regarding poor services, mismanagement, and over-billing.
We all complain how the French Quarter is nothing but drunken tourists and t-shirt shops, but a few, brand new, local businesses are working to change that.

For those of you unfamiliar with the New Orleans Saints, LEAVE THIS CITY NOW BEFORE YOU ARE EXPOSED, but also, the cheerleaders are called Saintsations. Cute pun! Right? Well, they are certainly not treated in a way that would leave them feeling very sensational.
Visit any of the Big Easy’s coffee shops and you’ll find a hub of activity: tourists looking for the coffee and beignets in the French Quarter, busy executives and employees in the CBD in for their morning pick-me-up, artists looking for inspiration in the afternoon, and of course, hospitality and service industry workers needing a jolt to get through their long day. New Orleans coffee shops are busier than ever. Unfortunately, the profits those shops make don’t always translate to better salaries for the hardworking shop employees.
In June of 2014, as a part of their fact-finding tour of America and after coordinating with a political operative from Texas, Aleksandra Krylova and Anna Bogacheva, both Russian nationals, made a stop in Louisiana, according to the allegations listed in an indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller this February.
