Employees Must Wash Hands After Exposing Themselves
October 11, 2017

Andrew Ward has more weird experiences than 20 Happy Hour guests combined. Without even mentioning the royal Indian heritage of his transgender chickens, how he gets to be involved in Louisiana's record setting race to be number one in the country for Gonorrhea, or the fact that Yulman Lapalanian is his step dad, Andrew's regular night in a bar on Frenchmen Street is not like yours. On Andrew's average night the... Read More »

Dick Tassels and the Whorachy
October 4, 2017

Darling Darla James (none of them are her real name) occupies what she describes as the bottom rung of the sex industry, or the whorachy. The whorachy starts at burlesque, graduates to club stripping, then porn, then prostitution. Darling Darla is a burlesque dancer. She also calls herself a stripper-light. Among the many things you'll learn from this conversation is how to make your breasts rotate in opposite directions. We'll bet... Read More »

New Orleans band Ginger and The Bee is principally a duo of Sherri Montz - aka "B" which stands for Beatrix Skiddo, her Big Easy Roller Derby name - and Scott Frilo who has red hair, like Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver, which back in the day by the way, before the Trump tax plan, was worth something. Sherwood Collins was brought up as a Christian Scientist... Read More »

Yes, And...

What do marketing managers, law professors, singer-songwriters and podcast hosts have in common? They could all use a good improv class.   Dane Ciolino is a Tulane law professor and legal analyst who sends his trial advocacy classes to The Moth story-telling event.   Taylor Richardson is marketing manager and SEO guru at Turbo Squid. She also attends Renaissance Faires in 25 pounds of chain mail, and shoots a Mongolian horse bow (Don’t miss... Read More »

Trouble Never Ends

Trouble Never Ends
September 13, 2017

Manny Chevrolet Bruno describes himself as "The next Mayor of New Orleans."  A perennial mayoral candidate with the slogan "A troubled man for troubled times" Manny is stepping it up this election cycle with his new slogan "Trouble Never Ends." It's unlikely you've ever heard a candidate for office espouse quite this strange of a collection of thoughts. Along with the usual promises to legalize marijuana and dismantle the Sewerage and...

Transactional Microdosing
September 6, 2017

If you're a guy you have to assume a woman wants to have sex with you for the same reason you want to have sex with her. Namely, that there's some kind of attraction. According to Chef Toya Boudy, that's not what women think at all. Not just some women but all women, according to Toya, are looking for something else beyond the satisfaction of sexual desire. Though it might not... Read More »

6 Dead For Dinner
August 23, 2017

Anne Ohri's plan for the ultimate demise of her family is, as each member dies, for them individually to be wired into a chair at a dining table set up in a mausoleum on their family farm in Plaqueimine's Parish and be slowly reclaimed by the ocean as erosion destroys Louisiana. Strangely, that's kind of the plan for her $10m experimental school called New Harmony High. New Harmony is one of... Read More »

The Librocubicularist

You may have met a librocubicularist and not known it. You may stood next to one at Barnes & Noble. You might even be one.   According to singer-songwriter Alexandra Scott, a librocubicularist is a person who enjoys reading in bed. According to our crack Happy Hour research staff - Grayson Jernigan - the word is not in Websters' dictionary, but then Webster can't be expected to know everything. Alexandra, on the other...

Sober Phobia

Sober Phobia
August 9, 2017

The problem with being sober is waking up in the morning and knowing it's not going to get any better all day. When you drink, you might have plenty to regret but you can have a lot of fun getting there. That's the philosophy behind being what pirate, leather-maker, and tour guide Jennifer Raven calls Soberphobic. If Jennifer is scared of what she'll find out about herself sober, that's about all she... Read More »

Kalamartian Jewish Rugby All Stars
August 2, 2017

You can't judge a book by its cover. There's no way you could look at a bunch of random people sitting around a table at Wayfare in New Orleans and guess what you're about to find out about them. A lot of people know Constantine Georges in New Orleans. He was a U.S. Attorney, which in itself  is a pretty big deal. When he quit that he made what you'd have to... Read More »
