Beer

Heard from a native: “They got it right that only the white people drink Abita”

A Well Stocked Pantry

Labels galore. From Old New Orleans Rum to Hubig’s Pies. Zapps in the kitchen. Beer sold on the streets during a second line parade. Having an Abita when you get home. Waiting for Brocatta’s to open. Now, there’s lots of food missing, and I’m hoping it will show up in later episodes, but this is a good start. The fact that restaurants were losing staff left and right was not just an issue of Post-Katrina New Orleans—it was an everyday fact in the service industry before the storm. It made for a difficult time managing to get restaurants back online after the storm, and this is made clear in the first episode.

Vaughn's

So I don’t want to go into the minutiae of Treme but I will say one thing. HBO waa able to capture the vibe of Vaughn’s on a Thursday down to such a level that I was able to smell the white beans and rice sitting on the sideboard between sets. The lighting was great, the sound was great (it sounded like a single mike in front of the stage) and the way it spacially reflected the club was awesome as well. How often have you had to struggle to recognize a location in a movie filmed here. That was totally fucking Vaughn’s. You don’t get much better than that. I can only hope they remain true to our other local hangouts (no sanitized clean restrooms please).
