When it comes to cocktails New Orleans has quite a lot to boast about it. The city has been home to many famous bars, bartenders and, of course, drinkers. And that’s not to mention its legendary and annual Mardi Gras celebration that is already underway. But one of my favorite NOLA cocktails has to be the Vieux Carré, which first saw light of day in Stanley Clisby Arthur’s 1938 classic Famous New Orleans Drinks & How to Mix ’Em. I discovered both the book and the drink way back in 1996, while I was researching my New Orleans roots. The immortal H.L. Mencken called the book “a classical work,” and that was good enough for me.

But they’ll be under the tutelage of some Marvel stalwarts, including the school’s flamboyant caped namesake, Doctor Strange. Veteran Marvel writer and artist Skottie Young is working with longtime Marvel artist Humberto Ramos on the project. In an interview this week, Young said he and co-workers first thought about setting the … [Read more...] about New Orleans is home to mystical academy in new Marvel comic

Many people criticized the "Can't Stop the Feeling" singer for unnecessarily plugging the movie in the note he shared to social media Wednesday evening.

"I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologize to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that," he continued.
