Dog Days of Summer

June 26, 2012 § 2 Comments

Just wanted to share a few shots of Joey and his friends. The old baseball field situated in front of Grits and F&M’s has become an informal dog park of Uptown. Right after Hurricane Katrina, the baseball field was filled with families living in FEMA trailers. It’s almost strange to think of the field with all those trailers a few years ago and now dogs run free on doggie play dates. Joey has a conniption every time we round the corner and the field is in sight.  « Read the rest of this entry »

I read about “The Music Box” in this Gambit article last week. In hopes of checking it out before it was dismantled, MG and I bopped over to the bywater in search of this hidden treasure. Unfortunately, we showed up a weekend too late. The Music Box officially closed its gates Father’s Day weekend. We did, however, get to peep through the holes in the fence.

Can you imagine trick-or-treating back in the mid 1800s? Suffice it to say, no need for scary decorations.

Sharing a frozen treat with Dad

In honor of Father’s day last weekend, Huffington Post ran this article, “11 Hipster Trends Your Dad Started.”  It was so spot on, I had to share it with y’all. Admittedly, my dad rocked several of these trends. He has a special affinity for a good mustache and mom purchased him many a Bill Cosby sweater. He even rocked the short shorts. The funny part is I have a pair of his old shorts that I wear as pajamas. The scary part is they fit me, and they should have never fit him.  « Read the rest of this entry »

Pho Yes!

One of the newest additions to Magazine Street, Magasin, is quickly becoming the new uptown hot spot. It’s open for lunch and dinner and the prices and food are just right. For a while, NOLA pho lovers, would travel to the Westbank to indulge their cravings at Pho Tau Bay. Although I can’t speak for Pho Tau Bay’s offerings, Magasin’s I can. « Read the rest of this entry »
