A Vanished New Orleans Captured on “Straight from the Projects” | New Yorker



The bar at 3901 Thalia Street first appeared in the New OrleansTimes-Picayune in 1933. Its liquor license had been revoked for allowing patrons to imbibe on premises permitted solely for the sale of beer in “unbroken packages.” Housed in a small clapboard building on the corner of Thalia and Dorgenois, deep in the Third Ward, it was renamed Rose Tavern shortly after the 1941 completion of the Calliope Housing Development, which all the locals simply called the “Cally-oh,” even after the city attempted to rebrand it, in 1981, as the B. W. Cooper Apartments. The Rose Tavern, located across the street from the Calliope’s central courtyard, became a hub for the projects and a clubhouse for the Calliope High Steppers and Lady Steppers, the local social-aid and pleasure organization.

From Grill to Glory: New barbecue restaurant brings smoked goodness to Destin




Aaron and Ruthann Vipperman are the friendly faces behind the counter at Rollin Smoke BBQ, a new restaurant in the Destin Commons shopping center. The couple recently moved their popular food truck business into the brick and mortar location and say the response has been amazing.
“A lot of people know me from my food truck,” said owner and pit master Aaron Vipperman. “We cook every day. You come in here and get pork, chicken, beef or sausage, and whatever we are cooking and you know we cooked it that same day.”
