Your guide to the galleries and events at White Linen Night 2019 - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


A large crowd of people wearing white flows through Julia Street in New Orleans. mattmc89/Creative Commons

Julia Street’s 25th annual art walk will be held this Saturday

As Julia Street approaches its 25th White Linen Night, the street couldn’t look any less like it did during its time as Skid Row in the 1970s.

Anchored by the 13 Sisters row houses, the street emerged as an affluent address within a bustling commercial district in the mid-19th century. As wealthier residents fled the Warehouse District for the neighboring Garden District and other suburbs, the industrial corridor endured a depression until the 1984 World’s Fair, when the city and developers targeted the area for a convention area and hotels. The street is now part of an Arts District that’s loaded with galleries and home to an annual street party that toasts to the arts scene—a party that has inspired several parodies, including the French Quarter’s Dirty Linen Night held the following weekend.

As new developments and luxury apartments continue to build around the neighborhood, there have been some casualties. Louisiana Products, a beloved neighborhood deli that first opened in 1985, survived the Warehouse District’s tony transformation in the 1990s and continued selling affordable plate lunches and sandwiches from its blink-and-you-miss-it storefront with a cigar box register, only to close in 2018.

The street also recently said goodbye to the Louisiana’s Children’s Museum, which closed its iconic big blue doors on July 27 as it prepares to move to a new campus in City Park.

Then there are new arrivals, like the Auction House Market food hall, an incoming Oprah-led restaurant anchoring the Julia apartments, and Two Saints, the city’s first co-living apartment building.

White Linen Night returns Saturday, August 3, at 5:30 p.m. Area galleries will open their doors, and the city’s party crowd, dressed to impress, will descend to squint at art. Here’s a guide to the art happenings and gallery shows to help navigate the sweaty masses.

Entergy solar panels are coming to Uptown’s streetcar barn - [Curbed New Orleans - All]

The panels will add more than 90 megawatts of solar power to the city’s grid

Entergy New Orleans has partnered with the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority to install solar panels on the Carrollton streetcar barn, as part of Entergy’s ongoing project to harness 5 megawatts of power from commercial and publicly owned rooftops throughout the city.

Famously the starting point for Carnival season’s Phunny Phorty Phellows revelers, the 33,290-square-foot barn was built in 1840, though it wasn’t rigged for electricity until 1888. Entergy’s rooftop panels will feed 300 kilowatts of power directly to the city’s electrical grid.

Approved by the New Orleans City Council in 2018, Entergy’s rooftop solar project brought solar panels to warehouses near the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal earlier this year. That system will bring 2.5 megawatts of solar power to the city grid, according to Entergy.

Just last week, the City Council approved another plan put forth by Entergy, to build a $42 million solar plant in New Orleans East by late 2020. That plant, in addition to the company’s purchase of solar power from plants in St. James and Washington parishes, will add 90 megawatts to the city’s grid, according to the Times-Picayune–the New Orleans Advocate.

The plant’s construction will result in a $1.50 bump in ratepayers’ monthly bills.

The RTA is the first public body to partner with Entergy on its rooftop solar project. The utility hopes to identify other publicly owned buildings to expand its solar capacity; ideal spaces have at least 10,000 square feet of rooftop space on buildings no less than three stories tall.

Getting kind of hot in the afternoon [ Local Stories]

A weak area of low pressure in the Gulf is unlikely to develop into anything tropical. There is dry air and strong winds aloft causing problems for the system. The old frontal boundary will drift north and increase our rain chances as we go into the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90.

The Mississippi River is at 15.39 feet. It has been over 15 feet for 165 days. The Spillway has been open the 2nd time for 76 days. That's the longest opening ever. Last long opening was 74 days in 1973. 48 bays closed today on the Spillway. 94 bays remain open.

More bays closing on Spillway [ Local Stories]

Dry air and strong winds aloft may prevent tropical development in the Gulf. There is a weak low forming along the stalled front. It's the same front that brought us a stormy weather yesterday, but less humid conditions today.

The Mississippi river is falling, and it should drop below 15 feet July 27th. 42 bays closed on the Spillway today. That means 94 bays are still open.

The Spillway has now been open 76 days for the 2nd opening. That is longer than the longest opening in 1973 of 75 days.

Where to Eat and Drink in the Bywater - [Eater New Orleans - All]


The Country Club | The Country Club/Official

From dives to swank

This historic Bywater neighborhood abuts the Marigny, stretching from the railroad tracks at Press Street to the Industrial Canal about a mile and change downriver from the French Quarter.

With a mix of residential and commercial space along the Mississippi, it used to be considered gritty and ramshackle. Back in the day, tourists cabbed in to hear Kermit Ruffins play a weekly gig at Vaughan’s on a Thursday night, but there wasn’t much else to recommend.

Fast forward a dozen years and Bywater is a red hot address, with a smattering of funky eateries ranging from budget to highbrow. St. Claude Avenue in particular is alive with activity, with options ranging from a wine bar to Mexican restaurants. Without further delay, here are the best of the area.

Where to Dine Solo in New Orleans - [Eater New Orleans - All]


Oysters at Cru by chef Marlon Alexander | Cru by Chef Marlon Alexander/Official Photo

Where to eat when you’re on a date with yourself

Dining solo can be an oasis of calm in an otherwise frantic day. A chance to center, savor and regroup without the distraction of making small talk. For a committed eater, it’s also the chance to taste exactly what is craved, without having to accommodate anyone else’s whims. That said, the best place to dine alone isn’t in the middle of a crowded dining room, surrounded by starry eyed couples, shrieking children, and rowdy groups. Here are some fab spots that welcome solo diners and offer cozy seating for loners in the dining room and bar.

Where to Eat in the Marigny - [Eater New Orleans - All]


NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - AUGUST 8: A young man's brass band plays on Frenchman's Street in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Sunday, August 9, 2015. (Photo by Melina Mara/The Washington Post via Getty Images) Melina Mara/Getty Images

Where to grab a bite in between all that dancing

Faubourg Marigny, on the downriver border of the French Quarter, is an original Creole neighborhood named for 19th century aristocrat Bernard de Marigny de Mandeville. In 1800, when his father died, Marigny became the richest 15-year-old in America, inheriting a vast fortune and the plantation which once defined the neighborhood.

In typical Big Easy style, Marigny lost the family homestead to gambling (he’s credited with creating the game of craps), but his loss was the city’s gain because the Marigny, with its Creole cottages, Frenchmen Street music clubs, St. Claude Avenue bars, and eclectic restaurants, is a neighborhood not be missed.

As always, this map is not listed by ranking. Think we missed a spot? Send us a tip.

Rampart Street reopens after syrup spill - [Curbed New Orleans - All]


Syrup covers a stretch of Rampart Street between streetcar tracks on the neutral ground and cars parked on the right side of the street Photo courtesy NOPD

But streetcar track cleaning will temporarily close one lane later today

All lanes of traffic are back open on North Rampart Street following a closure yesterday around 7 p.m. when a truck leaked 1,000 gallons of molasses onto the road.

The truck was traveling in the eastbound lane of Rampart when it started leaking on the thoroughfare’s 500 block, between Toulouse and St. Louis streets, on the edge of the French Quarter. The spill forced all eastbound lanes to close until early Tuesday morning.

Cleanup crews began working to remove the syrup late Monday. The street’s left eastbound lane will temporarily close again later today so that any remaining syrup can be cleaned from Rampart’s streetcar tracks, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Depression #3 is not organized [ Local Stories]

Mississippi River is falling. It's now 15.53 feet. 10 bays closed on the Spillway, and all bays should be closed within 7 days weather permitting. We have now had 163 days of the River at New Orleans being 15 feet or over. The Spillway has now been open 74 days for the second opening. The longest opening was in 1973 for 75 days. This will surpass that.

Tropical depression #3 is not organized. It is 65 miles SE of West Palm Beach. Max winds are 30 mph. It's moving NW 10 mph. It will likely merge as a remnant low with a cold front that will move off the Mid Atlantic Coast.
