Trimming the Tree

I kind of love Christmas. Mostly it’s the scents I love: roasting meat, pie spices, firewood and, most of all, pine trees. Today I’m getting the jump on that good smell and going over to my neighborhood nursery, Harold’s. It’s a little, hidden, unassuming place full of fantastic plants, year-round.

Crescent City Farmer’s Market-Thxgiving Edition-1

Thanksgiving is creepy up rather quickly this year. I think I’m going to go to the Crescent City Farmer’s Market and procure some local goodness to try out as a possible Thanksgiving side dish. How about this Bread Stuffing with Crawfish, Bacon, and Collard Greens

And, as it turns out, my favorite neighborhood cafe, Satsuma, is doing the Green Plate Special. How fortuitous! So lunch will be one or more of these offerings: Lentil Stew, Roasted Beet Salad, Salmon Salad Sandwich, Gluten Free Pie, Quiche and Satsuma Limeade.

Euclid Records Grand Opening

There ‘s a brand new record store in the Bywater: Euclid. The original store is in St. Louis, and apparently it is such a success that they decided to have a go here in NOLA. One thing is for sure, you can’t miss it!

It’s a brave thing to open a brick and mortar retail store these days. But, I take it as a good sign that, the other day, as I was talking to a recent New Orleans transplant ten years younger than I, she asked me where a good record store was. Up until a week ago I wouldn’t have had an answer for her.

This weekend they are having are a big old grand opening party featuring all kinds of local bands and barbecue! Today: The Happy Talk Band, Guitar Lightnin’Lee, Tom McDermott, Meschiya Lake and her Little Big Horns and Susan Cowsill. Tomorrow: Felix, The Rough Seven, and MC Trachiotomy.
