Magazine Street is a seven-mile cavalcade of restaurants, galleries, and boutique stores spanning New Orleans neighborhoods from the Lower Garden District to Uptown. The owners of these businesses are as colorful as their storefronts.
On this edition of Out to Lunch Peter Ricchiuti’s guests are not your traditional mom and pop: Bryan Batt from Hazelnut and Paul Wilcox from Art & Eyes.
The United States Census Bureau defines "mega-commuters" as people who travel at least 90 minutes or more than 50 miles to work each day. Nearly 600,000 Americans have a mega-commute, according to the Census Bureau, and 10.8 million travel at least an hour to work each way.
Over 192,000 people commute into Orleans Parish, according to the Census (including people traveling to and from work within the city).
Peter’s guests on this edition of Out to Lunch are eccentric enough to earn the accolade, “Our most Only In New Orleans show ever.”
Colin Grussing is an otherwise perfectly normal person who dresses in fully body spandex, including masking his face, and sells what he calls his RootSuit to other eccentrics and rabid sports fans. A man named Tree (only), who came to lunch in a wooden bow tie, weaves a magical spell over tourists.
If you own a dog in New Orleans, there are two places where your dog can legally run around off-leash: your yard and City Bark, the private dog park in City Park.
The New Orleans Recreation Development Commission wants to change that. NORD-C has selected two off-leash dog-runs for each district, but with city money tight there’s no telling when they’ll be built.
