As always these days, Anchower. The Cod got to swim up to NYC and visit Diner w/ Cookie, Pasquale Jones w/ Addison, not to mention assorted other foolishness. But, on the way out, also swung by the Carroll Gardens Milk... Continue reading

Been a minute. Based on recent events, I figure that this Thanksgiving might be the most difficult, since, like, the first one. There is plenty of anger and frustration to go around, and plenty of time to process it all.... Continue reading

It's a PSA. Some folks I know worked on it, and some other folks I know are in it. No more for paw vision Continue reading

OK, let me see if I have this straight: 1) Influence/relevance of newspaper reviews of restaurants has declined in recent years what with blogs/Eater/Grub St./Yelp/TripAdvisor. 2) But, lead restaurant critic for the NY Times remains a prestigious gig, and so... Continue reading

Via @ghostssong, a revolting development from New Orleans. (H/T Rev. Melanie.) Part & Parcel, a new place in the CBD, (I guess sometimes even lovers need a holiday from Cochon Butcher, but I digress.) I ain't mad at sandwiches hardly... Continue reading

It's not November, but in a truer sense, every month is Pimento Cheese Awareness Month, and it's important not to miss a chance to bring the minner cheese to the people when you can. I As such, very happy to... Continue reading

That piece in the Times about how Jack Daniels is now engaging w/ how African-Americans played a role in developing their iconic whiskey is an interesting read, esp in terms of seeing mainstream journalism struggle with telling about the struggle... Continue reading

Been a minute since I rapped at you, for which I am truly sorry. There is worse to tell, right on the same corner of campus, but, shouldn't we all stick to something, instead of noticing the raging dumpster fire... Continue reading

It is Mardi Gras Day. I am 22 years, 589.9 miles, and 721 feet above sea level removed from living in New Orleans. Like many of you, I watched the Formation video over the weekend, and saw Beyoncé's halftime performance.... Continue reading

And yes, it has been a while since I rapped at you, but that Awl piece today about the Pete Wells Per Se review has been getting some love on the internet today, and I am not sure why. I've... Continue reading

Very excited that MTV has rescued not one, but three very talented writers from the wreckage of Grantland. Holly Anderson? Dayenu. But! Brian Phillips, and Molly Lambert, too, though as I said earlier about a puppy, at some point, it's... Continue reading

Anchowerrr! Heading to Texas for MLA, and grateful for all the breaks in my life that make this a trip I am looking forward to. I will be there with one Professor Robert Eaglestone, and we will be introducing this... Continue reading

So, yes. Anchower. It has been an exceptionally long time since I rapped at you. Today, on a Friday afternoon before a Saturday Halloween, on a day when about 99% of what didn't suck on the Internet ended up in... Continue reading

Been a while. But I'm back as part of the Food Blog Revolution of Early Mid 2015! You probably saw the thing from over the weekend where a pair of asshats barged into Alden & Harlow, seated selves at refused... Continue reading

It's been a long time. And I'm back here to disapooint John T. Edge, to whom I made hasty promises of having discovered ya-ka-mein in Iceland, some 3,718 miles northeast of New Orleans. When the cinetrix and I visited this... Continue reading
