Get to Know Buddy (Q&A)
Favorite local restaurant?
Best local festival?
Top Taco – Woldenberg Park on the River, unlimited tacos by the best joints in the city, live music, and tequila drinks. It’s glorious!
Favorite Mardi Gras parade?
Tucks. Obviously, it’s hard to pick any other parade when you ride in one. My favorite parade to watch though is Nyx — my girlfriend rides in that one.
What's your favorite neighborhood in the city?
Broadmoor. Great neighborhood feel, and centrally located.
What's the best local brewery?
Wayward Owl. They have shuffleboard and the best collection of games to play. The beers are great too!
Who's your favorite local musician?
Big Freedia. My students introduced to me bounce music, and she is the best!
What's the best local music venue?
Tipitina’s. From the first time I watched my friends perform onstage during undergrad until the annual Don’t Spike the Eggnog fundraiser — and all the great music that’s played there every week — I have always loved Tipitina’s.
What's your favorite grocery store?
Frenchman or Bourbon?
Frenchmen. Especially if you’re in costume during Mardi Gras and Halloween.
What's your one favorite thing about New Orleans?
Without a doubt, it’s the people of New Orleans. I love that everyone says “Hi” and you can have a casual conversation with just about anyone, especially if you want to talk about the Saints.
