Budgeting for Outcomes

M

workers — including himself and his top staff — effectively cutting everyone’s salary by 10 percent. He significantly reduced the city’s fleet of take-home cars, extended City Hall’s business hours until 6 p.m. to make it more accessible, rewrote the city’s procurement policy to make it fairer and more transparent, and his new budget eliminates Nagin’s wasteful, corrupt and dysfunctional crime camera program. In short, Landrieu has proved himself to be a good steward of taxpayers’ money. The mayor’s proposed budget also reflects citizens’ priorities. In August, Landrieu and his department heads held town hall-style meetings in every corner of the city to let citizens speak out about what they want from city government. They did not hold back, and the mayor’s budget reflects that sentiment.

Mayor Landrieu has proved himself to be a good steward of taxpayers’ money. Now the ball is in the council’s court. As promised, the mayor delivered his budget two weeks ahead of the charter-imposed deadline of Nov. 1. The council will begin budget hearings Monday, Oct. 25, and continue them through Nov. 19. That will give council members more time than usual to meet the Dec. 1 budget adoption deadline set by the City Charter. No doubt some will oppose the mayor’s revenue proposals on the usual anti-tax, anti-government grounds. We urge the council to take a longer view of the mayor’s proposals. He has made a strong case for his budget. The increased sanitation fee simply reflects the city’s actual cost of garbage collection and landfilling, and the millage increase merely restores the rate to what it was in 2007. These proposals strike us as modest and reasonable. Considering the cuts and improvements already made to the current-year budget — and the additional enhancements that citizens demand going forward — the council’s choice may not look easy, but it should be clear.

ayor Mitch Landrieu has had no shortage of problems to solve since he won his historic election in February. The BP oil catastrophe occurred less than two weeks before his inauguration, the New Orleans Public Belt Railroad scandal erupted less than four months into his administration, and he inherited a police department in shambles as well as a mounting budget deficit from his predecessor. To his credit, Landrieu tackled each of those crises head-on, leveling with citizens at every turn. Last week, the mayor outlined with equal candor his proposed 2011 operating budget, which includes an $8-a-month hike in the city sanitation fee and an 8.75mill “roll forward” in the city’s general millage — back to its 2007 level. Now Landrieu must sell his proposed hikes to the City Council. We think he already has made a good case. There is never a good time to raise taxes or increase fees. Such moves are never popular. They are either necessary or not, justified or not. Oftentimes, political leaders seek to raise taxes or fees to maintain existing levels of service. In this case, Landrieu proposes significant improvements in city services in exchange for modest tax increases. His proposed budget doubles the annual allotment for the long-suffering New Orleans Recreation Department, something he promised if voters approved a charter amendment to reform NORD. He also has announced a long-overdue citywide blight reduction plan that will take down 10,000 eyesores in the next three years. On other fronts, Landrieu’s budget would dedicate more resources to pothole repairs, street lighting, drainage improvements, housing and lot inspections, and better customer service at City Hall (including live, local operators to answer the phones). Above all, the mayor and New Orleans Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas are already working to make NOPD more responsive and more effective at protecting citizens and solving crimes. “We are going to hold people accountable,” Landrieu says. “Every line item in the budget is tied to outcomes. If programs do not deliver, they will be cut. If employees are not hitting their marks, they will be replaced. For too long, we have overpaid only to be underserved. That’s why this budget focuses on performance and funds results.” The promises contained in the mayor’s first budget represent more than lofty aspirations. In less than six months on the job, Landrieu has scrubbed the current city budget to eliminate former Mayor Ray Nagin’s $80 million legacy deficit. He made the hard choice to furlough city

NEW ORLEANS KNOW-IT-ALL

DEAR JERROD, The 10-kilometer road race for runners and walkers is indeed a classic in New Orleans, but it also is recognized as one of the country’s premier races and draws about 20,000 athletes each year from across the United States and several other countries. Mac DeVaughn organized the first Crescent City Classic (CCC) for Sept. 23, 1979. It drew about 900 participants. Every year thereafter, the 6.2-mile race was scheduled for the Saturday before Easter. At first, the course started across from Jackson Square and ended at Audubon Park with a postrace celebration. In 2000, the course was changed to wind from the French Quarter to City Park. In 1997, the nonprofit Crescent City Fitness Foundation (CCFF), dedicated to promoting health and fitness in the New Orleans area, took over administration of the 10-K race, which now includes a twoday health and fitness expo at its sponsor hotel, the Sheraton New Orleans. There is a huge post-race festival at the park, which is open to the public. Race participants and children under 12 are admitted for free. Others can pay a $5 admission fee to attend the party. The next CCC is April 23, 2011. “It’s our way of introducing people to road races,” CCFF Executive Director Rick Lusky says. “It’s a pretty established sport, but the kids don’t do it. We’re not even [focusing on attracting] kids in track, just kids and families so they can come and enjoy the park.” What makes the CCC so special? “Mac’s vision, and we’ve tried to maintain it, is exercise New Orleans style,” Lusky says. “It combines fitness with things that make New Orleans so special — putting that little spin that makes things uniquely ours.” The post-race festival includes local

cuisine, Abita beer, Kentwood water, Zatarain’s jambalaya and entertainment by local musicians. The expo before the race sees about 10,000 visitors a year, Lusky says, and features exhibitors showing the latest in running shoes and apparel, exercise equipment, nutritional and wellness products, fitness services and more. The race is sanctioned by USA Track & Field and boasts two world records, one set in 1984 and another in 2002. “We are (scheduled) early in the season,” Lusky says. “We have world-class athletes come here, and the weather is pretty good. For a $20 registration fee, you get to listen to music, all you want to eat and drink, a T-shirt, expo and a whole lot of fun.” The CCFF also gives grants of $1,000, $2,000 or $3,000 to schools, churches and other groups based on the number of people they bring to the CCC. The funds ($20,000 in grants are available each year) can be used for uniforms, equipment, to fund trips to sports meets, for healthy snacks after fitness events, and more. The CCFF also sponsors other road races during the year.

The CresPHOTO COURTESY cent City Fall Classic, OF THE CCFF held in November, is a 5-K qualifier for the CCC that features team competitions and has special age-group awards. The Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk is the second-largest 2-mile event in the United States. After the run, participants are treated to a viewing of City Park’s yule-tide light displays before the public is admitted. The Crescent City Classic, Junior aims to attract youngsters and their families and includes a youth-oriented fitness expo and post-race festival. The CCFF is publishing a 2011 calendar that includes tips and training schedules for each of the races the nonprofit sponsors. For information about CCC events and programs, visit www.ccc10k.com.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“Changing Halloween weekend would remove an agonizing choice from our citizens.” — A small group of local moms calling themselves the “Treat Dats,” urging the citizenry to move trick-or-treating to Oct. 30 in order to avoid any agonizing conflict with the Saints-Steelers matchup on the night of Oct. 31.

R.I.P. CRIME CAMERAS

In his budget address to the City Council on Oct. 14, Mayor Mitch Landrieu highlighted changes his administration brought to City Hall in his first 165 days. In particular, the mayor cited deep cuts he had to make to cover a projected $80 million deficit in the current year — thanks to egregious overspending by former Mayor Ray Nagin. Tucked into Landrieu’s laundry list of cuts: the once-vaunted Nagin crime cameras, which cost the city millions, led to several federal public corruption indictments, and actually solved few, if any, crimes. “We had to make hard cuts, like no longer funding the crime camera program,” Landrieu told the council. “For the millions the city has sunk into this program, crime cameras have yielded little results. Both Chief [Ronal] Serpas and I agree that with the limited resources we have, our money needs to be better spent in a targeted way on other public safety priorities.” In addition to eliminating the crime camera program, other cuts in the public safety arena include funding only one new class of police cadets this year, which will reduce the total number of commissioned police officers by 60. “But this will not impact the number of cops on the beat as Chief Serpas

But the bigger point is ... we shouldn’t be stopping in October to fight about what should have been in last year’s budget.” Presumably negotiations will continue through October.

This year’s race will begin at the Roosevelt Mall in New Orleans City Park on Oct. 23 and follow a 5-kilometer course.

David Vitter,

Louisiana’s embattled junior senator, who is up for re-election on Nov. 2, has agreed to just one debate this campaign season, continuing his tack of ducking media, voters and his opponents since his prostitution scandal broke in 2007. Vitter agreed to four debates when he first ran for the U.S. Senate in 2004, but this year he is refusing to participate in five of the six major debates that have been proffered by TV stations and good government groups.

ear the end of September, the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) warned the city its services were coming to an end — the same warning it delivered in November 2009 and the year before that. Without a contract with the city and the associated funding stream, the organization is forced to cease many of its operations, from hurricane and storm shelters to animal control — a service that has been handed off to the New Orleans Police Department’s (NOPD) K-9 unit. SPCA chief executive officer Ana Zorrilla wants to know why New Orleans, unlike other cities in Louisiana, depends on a contract with a nonprofit rather than operating a municipal, city-owned animal-control unit. She also questions why the city doesn’t offer its animal-control contractor a multiyear contract, or at least fund a full year at a time. Last year’s money ran out in November. This year’s stopped in October. Zorrilla says she has had little discussion with the mayor’s office about the SPCA’s future and its inclusion in the 2011 budget. “We were hoping to hear something about it prior to it going before (City) Council, but at this point we don’t know where we stand,” she says.

als and recommendations. Landrieu’s plan calls for a $483 million city budget, smaller than those of recent years. “It will be tight,” he acknowledges — about $20 million tighter than the current budget. “In New Orleans, people just assume (responding to calls about animals is) what the SPCA is supposed to do, when it’s what the city is supposed to do,” Zorrilla says. “We’ve, time and time again, done it because we can do it effectively and efficiently, and very humanely, and we’re able to leverage our nonprofit resources to do more for the city than if they did it themselves, and it’s hard. The city is in a difficult spot financially, I don’t envy them in any way, they have to make some really hard choices. … If we value our animals and our safety, we make a small investment in that and get significant returns.”

WIThOuT PrOPer fuNdINg fOr The remainder of 2010 and 2011, the SPCA is forced to drastically scale back a host of services. It’ll suspend temporary storm shelters and evacuations of animals in the event of a hurricane. After-hours services are redirected to NOPd. Veterinarians, not the SPCA, will quarantine animals that bite humans. The organization also will stop enforcing mule inspections and the intact-dog ordinance, which requires pet owners to spay or neuter dogs older than 6 months (unless the owner has a permit). Owners who want to relinquish their pets will have to do so at SPCA’s shelter in Algiers at 1700 Mardi gras Blvd., and stray animals will not be trapped or collected — they will have to be brought in by the public. “Whether the SPCA does it or someone else does it, at the end of the day, what I want is (to know) the animals are well cared for, they’re safe and the citizens are safe,” Zorrilla says. “And my concern is, during this period of reduced services, there are animals that are going to be injured, there are people who are going to be injured that didn’t need to be. That could have been prevented.” The SPCA operates with a $4.5 million budget. Animal control costs alone account for $3 million. In 2010, the city provided $2.1 million. The SPCA cut services and raised money through donation drives and fundraisers to make up the difference. That budget allows for its shelter operations, adoptions, spayneuter clinics, a wellness clinic, afterschool and summer programs and community outreach. SPCA employs about 60 people and receives help from hundreds of volunteers. The SPCA will continue emergency

response, but without the group performing after-hours animal control, those duties will be handed to NOPd’s K-9 unit, which is absorbing the SPCA contract loss by putting its own officers in the field. Superintendent ronal Serpas suspended that unit’s suspect apprehension team earlier this month after a department of Justice review. Serpas says the unit needs training — following officer Jason Lewis’ guilty plea in the death of his K-9 partner Primo, a Belgian Malinois who died from heat stroke in 2009 after being left in Lewis’ car. Photos of the officer’s car show the dog ripped the seats to shreds in a desperate attempt to escape. In another case, Sgt. randy Lewis’ K-9 partner Phantom fell 17 stories in an elevator shaft at Charity hospital last year. Malfeasance charges against that officer were dropped. Cmdr. Bob Young, the head of NOPd public affairs, says the police department will assign two K-9 unit officers to handle calls the SPCA typically would answer after 5 p.m. “We’re going to step in and do the deed until this is resolved,” Young says. In addition to training for working with their dogs in the field, officers also are receiving training on how to handle strays. “how are you going to actually deliver some level of service? If you’re not going to let the SPCA do it, do you really have that many extra NOPd? I’ll say this as a private resident: I live in Orleans Parish. I want NOPd picking up criminals, not dogs,” Zorrilla says. “I want them to do what they do well, or better. … My goal is that it get done and we’re not worried about people or animals being attacked because we can’t afford to.” The humane Society of the united States estimates between 6 million and 8 million cats and dogs enter the country’s 3,500 shelters each year. Zorrilla says the SPCA here picks up about 5,000 stray animals each year, or 450 a month — more than double the national average. Of those animals collected nationally, 3 million to 4 million are adopted and 3 million to 4 million are euthanized because no homes can be found for them. devona dolliole, Landrieu’s director of communications, says the city “obviously wants to have animal care,” and will continue budget negotiations to pay for the remainder of 2010 and all of 2011. “We want the city to win, the animals to win — we want to do good work,” Zorrilla says. “It’s a service we want to make sure happens.”

Cross-Dissing

When state Rep. Juan LaFonta, D-New Orleans, crossed party lines on Oct. 13 to endorse Republican Congressman Anh “Joseph” Cao instead of Democratic state Rep. Cedric Richmond in the 2nd Congressional District, he caught many people by surprise … but not those who know LaFonta and Richmond well. The two state lawmakers have been at political odds for years. The feud goes back far enough that some of their colleagues in the Legislative Black Caucus can’t remember when or how it began — just that it keeps getting more and more intense. LaFonta’s endorsement of Cao marked the third time this week a significant Democratic elected official came out for the first-term Republican in the overwhelmingly Democratic district. Earlier in the week, District B City Councilwoman Stacy Head and new Assessor Erroll Williams both announced they support Cao. While all of those endorsements are significant, LaFonta’s seems to carry more impact because he was a candidate for Cao’s seat himself in the Aug. 28 Democratic primary. He finished a distant second to Richmond, who quickly picked up the support of third-place finisher Eugene Green. In his endorsement LaFonta called out his legislative colleague for “dishonesty and corruption” — which has become the major theme of Cao’s campaign these days. Richmond said he was not surprised that LaFonta endorsed Cao. “They’ve been running as a team all along,” he told Gambit. “They used the same message and even got help from some of the same consultants, like Cheron Brylski, who attacked me during the Democratic primary. They’ve been a double entry — 1 and 1A — from the start.” Richmond added that he didn’t think LaFonta’s endorsement would carry much weight. “I beat him in his own House district in the Democratic primary,” Richmond said, “and he has very little credibility in the black community after he opposed Barack Obama’s candidacy for president.” — DuBos

BoBBy on the stump — But not for Vitter

Last month, when Gov. Bobby Jindal told WDSU-TV he would not be endorsing fellow Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter in the junior senator’s re-election bid, he cited as his reason a policy of not injecting himself in national races. But that statement flies in the face of Jindal’s endorsement of Woody Jenkins in the 2008 special election to fill Louisiana’s 6th Congressional District seat — as well as his endorsement of state Treasurer John

Kennedy against U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu later that same year. Outside Louisiana, Jindal has found one Republican U.S. Senate candidate he can wholeheartedly back: Florida’s Marco Rubio, a favorite of the Tea Party. Like Jindal, Rubio is 39 and a possible comer for higher office. On Oct. 13, Jindal appeared at a “Reclaim America” campaign rally for Rubio in Tampa, Fla. The next day, Jindal traveled to Portsmouth, N.H., for a meetand-greet to raise funds for GOP gubernatorial candidate John Stephen — a move that raised eyebrows as well as money, since New Hampshire is the site of the first presidential primary in early 2012. On the surface, Jindal may want to avoid any association with Vitter because of the senator’s “serious sin” involving hookers in Washington D.C. and New Orleans. Insiders say there may be another reason: Vitter upstaged Jindal’s New Orleans announcement that he was running for governor three years ago. On July 16, 2007, Jindal was set to announce his candidacy for governor at Louis Armstrong International Airport at 6 p.m. At noon that same day, Vitter announced his first public appearance since admitting his “serious sin” — a news conference he scheduled for 5:05 p.m. that afternoon in Metairie. — Kevin Allman

siBling Defense

Don’t diss a man’s sister. That seems to be the message from Mayor Mitch Landrieu to U.S. Sen. David Vitter. In a statement issued Oct. 12 in response to the lifting of the deepwater-drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico, the mayor concluded, “We thank Senator Mary Landrieu, Congressman Charlie Melancon, and our congressional delegation for working hard on our behalf to end the moratorium.” Among the “congressional delegation” is Sen. Landrieu’s counterpart, Vitter, who has made his opposition to the moratorium (and, indeed, any proposal by President Barack Obama) a cornerstone of his re-election campaign. There’s no love lost between the senators, but things usually stay at a low boil, erupting only occasionally, as when Landrieu insisted on a $300 million Medicaid appropriation before throwing her support behind Obama’s health care plan. Though the appropriation was supported tacitly by Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, Vitter denounced the plan on the Senate floor as the “Louisiana Sellout,” and within days talk-show hosts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh referred to Mary Landrieu as a “prostitute” — earning rebukes from politicians on both sides of the aisle, though Vitter refused to come to her defense, infuriating Landrieu’s office. With his pointed omission of Vitter, however, it’s clear the senator’s brother has not forgotten ... or forgiven. — Allman

Gloves Off in 2nd District Race he gloves are off in the 2nd Congressional District contest between Republican incumbent Anh “Joseph” Cao and Democratic state Rep. Cedric Richmond. The race has several unique attributes that will make it worth watching — locally and nationally. For starters, Cao is probably the only GOP congressman in America who is not running against Barack Obama. The president recently taped his first-ever TV ad for a congressional candidate on behalf of Richmond. The district voted 80 percent for Obama two years ago. In such a district, the Republican incumbent has to walk a political tightrope between his GOP financiers and his overwhelmingly Democratic constituents. A key part of Cao’s strategy is picking up Democratic endorsements; he got several last week. Cao needs to get at least 15 percent of the black vote on Nov. 2 to have a shot at winning. Among blacks whose votes he can’t get, he needs to create enough doubt about Richmond that some might just not vote at all — as so many did in

more than the legally required boilerplate: Joseph Cao approved this message. It was probably too much to expect anything else. Politics is a full-contact sport. But the odd thing about Cao’s tactic is that Richmond has given him ample fodder to attack him cleanly, without having to reach. Richmond was suspended from the practice of law less

than two years ago for lying under oath on a campaign qualifying form in 2005, and he was fined by the state Ethics Commission for not reporting in a timely manner the fact he performed legal work for a state agency. For his part, Richmond appears to believe polls showing him ahead by double digits. Why else would he cancel a debate last week, a la David Vitter? Richmond cited a scheduling conflict, but that claim rings hollow in light of his earlier commitment to attend the debate, which was to be streamed online by WWL-TV. Richmond should not duck future debates. The two men are both quick on their feet, as they proved in a recent forum at Dillard University. Richmond tagged Cao, who had just boasted about his upcoming health fair in the Lower 9, for opposing Obama’s final health care plan. “People here don’t need health fairs. They need health care,” Richmond said. Cao got his licks in later in the same forum when he said Richmond is “slicker than a BP oil spill.” Now that’s more like it.

Cao’s upset win against the scandalized Bill Jefferson two years ago. That’s not an easy strategy to implement. Cao has come under fire, in fact, for going too far in his criticisms of Richmond. His campaign has cited unsubstantiated blog reports that Richmond bought a diamond bezel for a Rolex watch in 2002 with a credit card owned by a nonprofit organization to which the lawmaker steered legislative earmarks. It’s true that Richmond bought a Rolex and a diamond bezel, but he bought them in 2007 — several years after the nonprofit was dissolved. He also produced a receipt and a canceled personal check for the watch — and the jeweler backs him up. Even so, Cao continued to talk about the blog report as if it were credible, saying people “should look at it and judge on what they believe is right.” Clearly, Cao has lost his attack virginity. Fighting to remain America’s unlikeliest congressman, he has shown that even former Jesuit seminarians can grow fangs and talons. The disclaimer at the end of his TV broadsides against Richmond says much

WHEN THE

SAINTS ARE MARCHING, NEW ORLEANS IS MUNCHING IN STRIDE.

teve Harrell is methodical about each step that brings him to kickoff for a Saints home game inside the Louisiana Superdome. The veteran New Orleans police officer uses the same gate to enter the stadium each time, and, once inside the Dome, he follows the same route to reach his seat. But Harrell’s game-day ritual actually begins much earlier. In his kitchen at home, he carefully measures, bags and packs all the ingredients he’ll need to prepare a feast of Creole soul flavors at his favorite spot outside the Dome. “We always make enough for everyone,” he says. “We don’t care who comes by. Family, friends, strangers, they all get fed.” For each Saints home game, Harrell and a group of approximately 50 other law enforcement officers and their families produce this spread under the Claiborne Avenue overpass at Poydras Street, a spot within a stone’s throw of the Dome. They’re tailgating, but these parties go beyond just cooking before the game. Harrell, a nephew of the late New Orleans chef Austin Leslie, says when you devote a day to supporting your local team, you must begin with a serious dose of local food. “It’s New Orleans,” he says. “Fans from other cities, they come by and they’re like, ‘What are you cooking over there?’ They can’t believe it. They cook hot dogs back home. We’re out here making white beans, pasta-laya, gumbo, ribs. We do

it up because that’s the way we do it here.” Saints mania is on display everywhere around the New Orleans area these days, and it’s making an imprint on the way locals eat as well. The melding of south Louisiana’s perpetual passion for food and fans’ seasonal passion for the Saints fosters some momentous game-day meals. It drives highly personal food rituals and inspires edible tributes to the home team. In some cases, it even changes the way restaurateurs do business during the season. “CHEESE CRACK,” A LOWBROW BUT ADDICTIVE DIP MADE FROM VELVEETA and Rotel tomatoes, is a gooey good luck totem that must be on the table whenever software engineer Rob Schafer hosts a Saints-watching party at his Central City home. When Saints spirit moves him, Paul Arceneaux, a pesto maker and vendor at the Crescent City Farmers Market, prepares his black-and-gold soup with yellow peppers cut into fleur de lis shapes floating atop a black broth with beans. And at the Creole Country sausage plant in Mid-City, owner Vaughn Schmitt fills special orders for Saints-themed hog’s head cheese using molds shaped like football helmets or the fleur de lis, which produce meaty, spicy, 3-pound sculptures that serve as centerpieces for game-day parties. These continue a tradition he inherited from his late mother, Fabiola “Fab” Schmitt. “My mom would carve a little emblem for the Saints out of yellow American cheese and stick that on the head cheese helmet, too,” Schmitt says. “Then she’d

make an emblem for whatever team [the Saints] were playing every week. She had templates done up for all the teams. So we’d have two head cheeses. There was the hot one, which would be the Saints helmet, and the mild one, which would have the other team’s emblem. Of course, the Saints weren’t too hot back then, but we were always hoping.” Robert Johnston, a partner at the downtown law firm Fowler Rodriguez ValdesFauli, stokes one food ritual that could be classified as an edible grudge. For years he’s made a brown, Cajun-style jambalaya for game days, and during the sorrowful tenure of Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks and head coach Jim Haslett, this dish earned the moniker “Dammit Aaron Jambalaya.” “My friend Will and I would sit there eating jambalaya and yelling ‘Dammit Aaron!’ at the TV each time (Brooks) threw an interception,” Johnston says. “We’ve had many heated discussions about whether we should change the name, but

we’ve decided that, first, we couldn’t come up with any better names than this one and, second, as Saints fans, it’s always important to remember the bad old days, which makes these days that much more amazing.” SOME SAINTS FANS ARE EVEN CONVINCED THAT WHAT THEY COOK, EAT OR SERVE on game day has some mystic influence on the team’s performance. Tommy Cvitanovich, owner of Drago’s Seafood Restaurant, is determined that Saints players should eat his restaurant’s signature char-broiled oysters whenever they prepare for upcoming games. So, just as he did last year, he dispatches a trailermounted grill and a crew of employees from Drago’s to the team’s training facility each Friday to serve the Saints. “They say ‘eat oysters, love better.’ We say ‘eat oysters, play better,’” Cvitanovich says. The supply of Louisiana oysters has been tenuous since the BP oil disaster upended the Gulf seafood industry, but Cvitanovich has found a way to keep this pre-game tradition alive each week thus far. “We really have to work to get the supply we need,” he says. “But I’d shorten my restaurant (supply) before I’d shorten the Saints’. I’m a Saints fan, that’s what you do. I’ll make it happen because I’m not going to change a damn thing from last year. The team might not be superstitious, but I am. Every little thing I did last season, I’m doing it again this year.” PAGE 21

Any fan can wear a Saints T-shirt or hat, but wearing a player’s jersey is a deeply personal decision. You’re not just claiming allegiance to a team but to another human being. That’s not to be taken lightly. Here’s what your Saints jersey says about you. BY ADAM NORRIS

You consider yourself a leader, or you aspire to be one. Brees demonstrates the same type of poise in the huddle and at the line of scrimmage as he does in post-game interviews and at community events where he’s mobbed by adoring Who Dats. The Brees jersey crosses all barriers: young and old, black and white, Democrat and Republican, Northshore and Southshore. The guy is more popular than king cake. If you own a Brees jersey, you don’t crave individuality, but you can always be assured that you’re in good company.

DREW BREES

REGGIE BUSH You love glamour. Based on his legendary college career at the University of Southern California and his marketing potential, Bush had a portfolio of major endorsements before he ever played a down in the NFL. Exuding Southern California cool, he wears diamondstudded earrings the size of postage stamps, knows the paparazzi on a first-name basis and has an ex-girlfriend who’s even more famous than he is. As a rookie, he celebrated a touchdown in the NFC Championship game by somersaulting into the end zone. He has matured since then, but he’s still a showman, and as the owner of a Bush jersey, that’s what you appreciate. Gambit > bestofneworleans.com > OCTOBER 19 > 2010

JEREMY SHOCKEY You are a renegade. You listen to music at a

volume that causes parents to wince and people to turn down their hearing aids. Your bedtime is generally the same as that of bouncers and bartenders, though you may be neither a bouncer nor a bartender. There is a good chance that you have multiple tattoos, or you secretly desire them. Oh, and somewhere in your closet there’s a Kyle Turley jersey, too.

MARQUES COLSTON You value humility. In a league populated by preening, self-promoting pass-catchers, Colston is, in many ways, the anti-receiver. The former seventh-round draft pick entered the NFL with zero fanfare and, despite catching more than 300 balls in his career, he is as unfailingly soft-spoken and polite as he was during his rookie season. Colston doesn’t thump his chest after a routine reception or engage in any post-touchdown choreography. He lets his play speak for itself. A Colston jersey bespeaks quiet confidence.

12

JONATHAN VILMA You pride yourself on your intellect. The Saints

middle linebacker is always one of the most cerebral players on the field. On Sundays he matches wits with the opposing team’s quarterback, trying to sniff out tendencies and bark out last minute adjustments at the line of scrimmage. Those who wear No. 51 are asserting their status as students of the game. And it’s less obnoxious to wear a Vilma jersey than to walk around with your ACT score scrawled on the back of your shirt.

51

23

PIERRE THOMAS You identify with the underdog. Your Netflix queue

has three movies in it, never to be changed: Rocky, Rudy and Hoosiers. The Saints running back went undrafted out of the Universityof Illinois,

and was not expected to even make the roster his rookie season, but he’s seized every opportunity he’s had in the NFL and exceeded expectations at every turn. Your Pierre Thomas jersey conveys your belief in a meritocracy: a man will be judged on his talents alone.

JOHN CARNEY You are uncomfortable wearing the gear of professional athletes who are young enough to be your offspring. Wearing Carney’s jersey allows you to stick with your peer group. For you, every successful kick from the 46-year old is a quiet act of vindication for all 40-somethings who refuse to believe that athletic glory must be dimmed by the aging process. Plus, a Carney jersey is a wise long-term investment. Even though the Saints may cut him, never dump his jersey; there’s a good chance he’ll end up back on the roster, ready to produce.

3

GARRETT HARTLEY You are trendy. It’s likely you rushed out within

24 hours of Hartley’s history-making field goal in last season’s NFC Championship game and bought your first-ever piece of kicker paraphernalia. Hartley merchandise was hot and there was no way you were going to miss out on the latest craze. Need more proof? Fish that macarena CD out of your desk drawer.

5

JASON KYLE You are almost certainly related to Saints long snapper Jason Kyle. Kyle plays the most anonymous position on the field and the only reason his name is ever uttered is when he, or any member of his small fraternity, doesn’t do his job correctly. Fortunately Kyle remains largely unknown, even to ardent Saints fans, which indicates excellent job performance.

57

(RETIRED) You haven’t participated in the free market economy since the Clinton administration. But you’ve given credence to the fashion maxim that any item of clothing, if you wait long enough, will eventually come back in style. So your resistance to update your wardrobe has actually made you something of a clairvoyant. In 2005 the former Saints quarterback returned to New Orleans to succeed the iconic Buddy Diliberto on WWL radio and “the Cajun Cannon” has become the undisputed voice of the Who Dat Nation. In some cities, wearing the jersey of a quarterback who hasn’t played a down for the home team in nearly two decades may seem oddly nostalgic; in New Orleans it makes perfect sense.

BOBBY HEBERT

YOUR NAME HERE You are so emotionally attached to the Saints

that you can’t imagine donning any team apparel that bears somebody else’s name. Narcissistic? Maybe. Delusional? Perhaps. Diehard? Absolutely. Have you seen my Saints jersey? It has my name on it!

It was spinach dip that got Uptown resident Matthew Gresham feeling superstitious back in 2006 when the Saints opened that season on the road against the Cleveland Browns. He and his friends were watching the game at Fat Harry’s bar, and while the Saints led 9-7 in the third quarter, Gresham was distraught that the team had yet to score a touchdown. “Well, somebody at the table ordered spinach dip and no sooner had it arrived than (Saints wide receiver) Marques Colston caught his first NFL touchdown pass to put us up 16-7,” Gresham says. “We all looked at each other and toasted the momentum-changing spinach dip.” From then on, Gresham and his friends resolved to order the dip at Fat Harry’s for each away game. Since this group has season tickets, they recruited a proxy to watch home games at the bar with instructions to await their call from the Dome and order spinach dip at the optimal time. When it comes to Saints season, many local restaurateurs are learning the importance of timing as well. DANNAL PERRY, A BYWATER RESIDENT AND OWNER OF THE UPTOWN BOUTIQUE Plum, hosts out-of-town friends each December for a weekend that always includes a reveillon dinner, a festive prix fixe meal some local restaurants serve during the

winter holiday season. Last year, Perry booked a table at Upperline Restaurant weeks in advance, but even so she was advised her group had barely squeaked in on a popular night. The reservation was for Saturday, Dec. 19, and while that date didn’t seem significant at the time, it turned out to be the night the Saints faced the Dallas Cowboys in the Dome with the home team’s 13-game winning streak on the line. “We arrived that night and there was only one other table of two people in the restaurant, and they were obviously not from New Orleans,” Perry says. “Everyone was so nice, and it was a great meal. But we all kept asking about the score, checking our phones.” The NFL schedule has emerged as an X factor for local restaurants. Those that open for brunch within walking distance of the Dome are often swamped before a Sunday kickoff, and after a win many dining rooms can fill again with spirited fans making a night of it downtown. But when a night game crops up on the regular schedule or — as so many New Orleanians hope will recur — during the postseason, restaurateurs all over the metro area must contend with business conditions that resemble an ersatz holiday. Rock-n-Sake has a particularly tight relationship with the Saints. Sushi chef Dirk Dantin caters the personal Superdome suite of Saints owner/executive vice president Rita Benson LeBlanc, making rolls at a portable sushi bar and crafting Saintsthemed garnishes like gridirons made of wasabi. The Warehouse District restaurant

club XLIV, located just steps away from Champions Square at the Louisiana Superdome, is a private lounge featuring high end furniture groupings, premium bars and flat screen televisions. It’s the perfect place to network and entertain friends and colleagues before Saints games! club XLIV is open before every home game this season and $45 gets you access to the club three hours prior to kickoff, complimentary food items from three of the restaurants featured in Champions Square and complimentary open bar. Food items for the October 24th game include Shrimp Remoulade from Galatoire’s Restaurant, Spinach Risotto with Tasso and Shrimp from Drago’s Seafood Restaurant and Red Beans and Rice with Fried Catfish from The Praline Connection. club XLIV is also the perfect location for your holiday party!

also earned a reputation as a hangout for Saints players, thanks to the patronage of Scott Fujita, the former Saints linebacker now playing for the Cleveland Browns. Dantin even names a specialty roll for the Saints player he thinks made the biggest impact each week, leading to creations like “Vilma’s viciously delicious roll” and the “pick six Porter roll.” None of this, however, insulates Rock-n-Sake from the feast-or-famine prospect of running a restaurant when the Saints are playing. “It’s all about when the game is scheduled and how (the game) turns out,” says Tisbee Dantin, managing partner at the restaurant. “If it’s a night game, we can kiss our dinner goodbye. No one’s here. For a noon game at home, if the Saints win, it’s like a Friday night in here. But if we lose, we’ll get maybe half as many people, and everyone’s depressed. No one’s drinking; they just want to get their food and leave.” Rock-n-Sake will close altogether for the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Halloween night, Dantin says, because the restaurant anticipates very little business. One street over, RioMar has taken a different tack this season. Though the Latin American seafood restaurant is normally closed on Sundays, owners Adolfo Garcia and Nick Bazan decided to open the bar on game days. Now a small crowd of regulars gathers there to watch the game on television while eating tapas and drinking Spanish wine. “These days, when the team is doing well, not as many people are watching the games at home, they want to be out celebrating with other people,” Bazan says. “All those night games last year killed us for business, so this is a way to get back a little too this time around.”

Future Saints seasons were on the minds of Bryan and Jeremy Vigreux in 2009 when they opened their restaurant Vig Roux Po-Boys in Mandeville. The brothers decided to close their shop for any Saints game, no matter when it occurs. “It really wasn’t much of a decision,” Bryan says. “We’ve been Saints fans since forever and we knew that if we could pick what day we’d have off it would be when the Saints are playing. Last year, with those playoff games, sometimes we needed to close the next day, too.” THE VIGREUX BROTHERS FEEL THEY’VE LOGGED enough time in their restaurant kitchen by game day, so they don’t organize any big pre-game meals. But for many others, Saints games are a chance for their own culinary exploits to shine. In some cases, the cooking has escalated to a competition all its own. At Nat Sylve’s home in Harvey, a Saints Sunday resembles a gathering of the tribes as relatives and friends from across southeast Louisiana arrive with tureens of courtbouillon or red beans, platters of paneed meat and gumbo by the gallon. “Everyone brings their dishes already prepared,” says Sylve, a plant manger at the ConocoPhillips Alliance Refinery in Belle Chasse. “I tell them, ‘Come cook here. Look, I’ll set up some stoves and prep tables here, everything.’ But they say, ‘No, no. I’ll just make it at home.’ They’re protecting their recipes, that’s why. They don’t want anyone to see how they do it.” Conversely, David Hunter does his Saints cooking where everyone can see. During the week, he works for

Freightliner trucking company, but when Hunter travels from his Marrero home to his tailgating site along South Rampart Street, he’s hauling about 80 pounds of turkey necks. He boils them right there in the parking lot, and until kickoff his friends pass by, pluck a neck from a steaming cooler and pick spicy, salty meat from the bony crevices as they discuss the Saints’ chances. “We started out doing sausage and that kind of barbecue,” Hunter says. “But when we started getting into the necks, man, that really kicked up the party here. It makes people stop a while and talk, talk about the Saints, and that’s what this is all about.” Junior “Lunchbox” Colosino, a manager at the industrial supply company Crescent Power Systems, tailgates for every home game, but he picks one game each season to turn his customary parking spot along Girod Street into a Cajun-style pig roast. He’s planning this year’s pork extravaganza for the Steelers game on Halloween night, and that means the 14-hour roasting process will have to begin around 2 a.m. to have a pig ready to share with friends about 4 p.m. that day. But Colosino doesn’t sweat the effort entailed in this communal meal ritual. “It’s the Saints,” he says. “It’s about our team, our home. This is how we do things in our city. It’s always about big family, big feasts. If you come over to my house, I’m going to feed you, and that’s the attitude we bring with us to party before a game. Our culture revolves around this. If we lived somewhere else it would be different, but this is who we are. “Now, since we’re doing this on Halloween this year, we just have to come up with costumes that won’t catch fire around the roaster.”

t was a beautiful challenge with an amazing history,” says Santa Fe Restaurant (3201 Esplanade Ave., 9480077) co-owner Lale Ergun of her decision to reopen the eatery. German chef Mark Hollger opened the original Santa Fe Restaurant on Frenchmen Street in the 1980s. With his secret margarita recipe and the European kick he gave Southwestern dishes, the eatery was a success, amassing a band of avid followers during the 20 years that it remained open, until Hollger was diagnosed with cancer. “When I found out about Santa Fe and that it was having trouble, I fell in love with the history. It was just what I needed at that time in my life,” Ergun says. She and husband Carlos Lourenco reincarnated the restaurant on Esplanade Avenue in August 2009. Today, some traditional dishes remain, like chicken Maximilian and the Santa Fe combo, but an updated menu adds a Latin touch to the Southwestern cuisine. “In Santa Fe, they don’t put nuts and raisins on your burrito, but Hollger did. I have a lot of respect for him and kept a lot of those little details ... but we have improved the old menu, modernized it and innovated it to include a Latin influence,” Ergun says. Having lived in numerous countries, the couple brings international experience to the table when concocting dishes. All items are seasoned with international spices made in house. New favorites include tortilla-crusted crab cakes and other offerings that cater to what Ergun calls “the lighter palate” of the younger generation.

While food is a top priority for Ergun, ambience is another focal point in the restaurant’s rejuvenation. Ergun added an outdoor seating area that customers love, and more remodeling is in the works. “I want to turn the whole building into a little hacienda. Something very elegant but simple. I want guests to feel comfortable bringing children, elderly parents and even pets,” Ergun says. On Thursdays the restaurant features live Latin jazz, and on Sunday nights Brazillian musician Riccardo Crespo plays the guitar. “Several customers have said, ‘When we sit here, we could be anywhere in Spain. It is a vacation to come here,’’’ Ergun says.

“Beyond being a ghost story, there’s Lucy Faust and Michael this weird thing,” Aaron Santos star in Yockey says. “If you’re Afterlife: A Ghost Story. grieving over a loss, PHOTO BY JOHN BARROIS there’s a big hardcover book on the shelf at Borders that tells you how to do it. But if you have an explanation that says what normal people do, it kind of sets a trap. That takes an additional toll. … I was interested in exploring the slow burn of a ghost story and exploring grief in a way that hadn’t been seen before.” After Southern Rep, the play will be staged at New Rep in Boston and the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica, Calif., as part of the National New Play Network’s rolling premiere program, and it will be published. Yockey will attend the opening and also work with friend and playwright Ross Maxwell on GoodNight, a series of vignettes they co-wrote for Hayes that will be staged at Southern Rep at Le Chat Noir on Oct. 29-30 along with a monologue by Jim Fitzmorris.

newly transplanted playwright Steve Yockey stresses one of the advantages of theater. “When things are inherently theatrical, they belong on stage,” he says. “The stage has limitless imagination. You suggest something and the people in the audience create it in their own mind. In theater, it’s about what you don’t see. Horror is that way.” His play Afterlife: A Ghost Story, which gets its world premiere this week at Southern Rep, is not a horror tale, but it is a ghost story and its mix of grief and fright is uncommon in theater. Yockey’s plays have garnered attention for some of their unconventional and untamed qualities. “I remember at NYU, Elizabeth Diggs pounding on the table, saying ‘Don’t write what you think people want to see,’” he says. “That’s why I wrote a play [Octopus] that requires hundreds of gallons of water pouring on stage. I think that’s why it’s been published and produced around the country. You want to take advantage of the excitement of theatricality.” Yockey started Afterlife while pursuing an MFA at NYU. He took it to a workshop at the Kennedy Center in 2008, where he met Aimee Hayes, artistic director of Southern Rep, who started to champion the play. He wasn’t happy with the reading and was going to shelve it and focus on other projects, but Hayes started an extended conversation about the script and later went to a reading of it in New York. Eventually, she invited him to bring it to New Orleans, and it went through another workshop in Southern Rep’s New Play Bacchanal in January, comAfterlife: A plete with a life-size blackbird Ghost Story puppet. In the middle of the 8 P.M. THU.-FRI. (PREVIEWS); 8 P.M. workshop, Hayes committed to SAT. (OPENING staging its first full production. NIGHT); 3 P.M.

Thermal Reactors hina isn’t the friendliest place for artists these days, let alone those whose expression includes call-to-arms punk rock concept albums about a fascistic, iron-fisted American future eerily similar to the Chinese present. (Sample lyric from 2006 bone-crusher The Body, The Blood, The Machine: “Fear me again, know I’m your father/ Remember that no one can breathe underwater.”) So, Westin Glass: How was it for one of the world’s most inciting bands to play in one of the most intolerant countries on the planet? “Mind-blowing,” says Glass, drummer for Portland, Ore.’s the Thermals. “We’d never been to China, never had any exposure there, don’t have any records out there. Your average Chinese person probably has not heard of our band. … It made me a little scared for the future of the world, to be honest. When I got back to Portland I literally kissed the ground.” The screening process that ensnares many visiting performers somehow missed the Thermals — despite song titles like “I Might Need You to Kill,” whose red flags come out flapping (“Locusts, tornadoes/ Crosses and Nazi halos”). “I heard some stuff about bands having to submit a video of their performance,” Glass says. “We didn’t have to go through any of that. We were nervous about the whole thing. There were so many things to be scared about. But in the end it was super easy.” The get-out-of-jail-free card may have been the relatively reined-in twin LPs the band has released since The Machine, which was captured at the peak of what it read as a path to warmongering insanity. Follow-up Now We Can See (2008) and September’s Personal Life (Kill Rock Stars), while reinforcing the overdriven guitar charges and steamrolled vocal hooks that define the band, abandon the heavy-handed political and religious grenade lobbing in favor of more figurative, oblique lyrics about death and rebirth. Says Glass on the new record’s theme of disintegrating relationships, “There’s a lot of truth to it. It’s definitely inspired by real life. But also artistic license.” For the recording, the Thermals returned to prolific producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie, Decemberists), who engineered

second album F—in A (2004). The result is scrubbed pop/punk that spotlights the simple-yet-indelible melodies at the heart of singer/guitarist Hutch Harris and bassist Kathy Foster’s songwriting. “The whole record’s completely analog:

recorded on tape, Portland mixed to tape, punk rockers mastered from the Thermals tape directly to come to vinyl,” Glass says. town Oct. 22 “Chris is a wizard with all this old analog gear he has and that they have at (Portland’s) Jackpot! (Studio), microphones and amp placements. The guitar solos on Personal Life, I love so much — there were like eight amps and 12 microphones involved. He has a million little tricks that are so cool.” An example? “At the end of the first track there’s this little backwards guitar chord. The way we did that is that Chris actually took the tape off the machine and flipped it over, and we recorded a guitar chord backwards onto the tape,” Glass says. The sound was inspired less by contemporaries than by classic records the band was listening to at the time: ZZ Top and Thin Lizzy. “We love that really tight, really dry sound of those records. The second-to-last Cribs record (2007’s Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs, Whatever) is also really dry — everything is right up in your face. It’s just such a cool way to make a record, and it’s something that not many people are doing these days. Right now it’s like there’s tons of reverb on everything, which is fine. But not what we wanted to do.”

LITTLE TROPICAL ISLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Marc Stone, 4:30; Jason Bishop, 9

Can the Circle Bar contain Dex Romweber? The fury may have long ago left the former voice of Chapel Hill, N.C., rockabilly legends Flat Duo Jets, but Romweberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resonating, bellyaching bellows are still plenty imposing enough to ďŹ ll rooms 10 times the size of New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biggest little venue â&#x20AC;&#x201D; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to level the leaning building one way or another, either raising it upright or razing it to rubble. On 2009â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ruins of Berlin (Bloodshot), Romweberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst ofďŹ cial release with sister/timekeeper Sara, the human geyser is in familiar, if decelerated, form: back in front of a vintage rock duo, immolating instant classics and appropriated covers with gasoline-doused, surfpunk guitar licks and drum strikes that give off sparks. Joining the singer is seemingly everyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever dropped his name in an interview. Neko Case and Chan Marshall (Cat Power) nestle in close, slow-dancing through â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still Aroundâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Letters,â&#x20AC;? respectively; and Exene Cervenka and Jack White are bold enough to match throats with him, peacocking on showoff vocal numbers â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lonesome Trainâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last Kind Word Blues.â&#x20AC;? Kenneth Brian opens. Tickets $8. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Noah Bonaparte Pais

La f S q ay e ua tte re

The irrepressible Dr. Momus Alexander Morgus returns to the big screen. The cryptically benign scientific genius debuted in 1959 as a local character whose TV spots bookended nationally televised horror films. He became so popular that various incarnations of the show aired through the late 1980s. The interminable inventor toiled in his lab above the “Old City Ice House” along with his hulking but mute assistant Chopsley, and one contraption after another blew up in his face. Creator Sid Noel starred in the feature film The Wacky World of Dr. Morgus (1962), and most of the film prints were lost after Hurricane Katrina. The upcoming DVD release (www.morgusmovie.com) is derived from a high-definition transfer from the Library of Congress’ print. This two-week run at Chalmette Movies is the film’s first screening in more than two decades. Producer R.J. Sevin will answer questions following the Friday and Saturday screenings. — Will Coviello

GYPSY (NR) —The 1962 film is

review Freak Show

You may not be surprised to learn that sports contests are sometimes fixed. For money even! Such revelations make the documentary Freakonomics underwhelming at times. But the segment focusing on the Japanese sport of sumo wrestling is still interesting for a couple of reasons: First, the simple and obvious way numbers tell the story, and second, the social reasons fans don’t see the corruption, even as some of them bet and lose money on fixed bouts. Producer Chad Troutwine worked with several documentary filmmakers (Morgan Spurlock, Eugene Jarecki) to illustrate the work of New York Times reporter Stephen Dubner and University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt, co-authors of the 4-million-copy-selling 2005 book Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything. As an economist, Levitt believes the key to understanding any human behavior is figuring out the incentives at work. As Freakonomists, the two have become famous for debunking popular ideas and controversial for suggesting alternative explanations. Perhaps the most provocative position they have taken is that Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing access to abortion, was significantly responsible for the decline in crime beginning in the early 1990s, and their argument is covered in this film. They also look at the efficacy of paying students to get better grades and whether a toddler can outsmart an incentive system designed by Levitt. Alex Gibney, known for Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, an exhaustive look at accounting fraud, delivers the overwrought segment about sumo, but visually, it’s the best segment in the film. Its focus on the Japanese mystique of purity and the incorporation of Shinto religious customs shows how people are deceived or deceive themselves — cheating themselves out of their own interest. It’s ironic the film quickly glosses over several of Levitt and Dubner’s case studies, which are based on thorough analysis of data. You will have to consult the book for the details. But this may be the most entertaining explication of economic principles you’ll see on film. Not all human decisions can be reduced to dollar amounts and perceived values, but numbers say a lot, and Levitt is very good with numbers. Tickets $7 general admission, $6 students/seniors, $5 Zeitgeist members. — Will Coviello THRU OCT

review light Hearted Known for coolly luminous, large-scale neon sculpture installations at venues like Germany’s Munich Airport, Keith Sonnier has always been able to meld varied approaches into his unique style. Whether intimate or monumental, his work is always personal, if a tad detached. As a youth in Mamou, La., he was intrigued by the reflections of neon on water at night, an interaction of electric colors and natural forces that later characterized his work in media such as fabric, bamboo, glass and wood. Appearing simultaneously with a large solo exhibition of his work in Baton Rouge, this Heriard-Cimino show features some smaller pieces that are quirky even by Sonnier standards. The walls of the rear gallery are covered in newspaper, a not-so-veiled reference to the BP oil disaster. Yet it is veiled because Sonnier is always oblique. Dining Chandelier (pictured) features two gently curving neon tubes suggesting a classical urn, but it contains a chaotic series of glowing neon loops like a child’s doodle rendered in light. Even more playful is Tea Service, a set of very large cups and saucers stacked as if left over from a gathering of giants. But their fuzzy, flocked surfaces, rendered in bright yellow and pink, transport us to a realm of surrealism — or Dr. Seuss; it’s hard to say which. As usual, Sonnier presents us with a Zen puzzle, and it hardly matters if it has no answer or many answers. Amid all this, Carolina Sardi’s slender painted steel wall sculptures in the front gallery suggest many elaborately arranged exclamation marks, computer code, or perhaps zany hexagrams from a hitherto unknown version of the I Ching. Signifying human figures and natural forms hovering in space, they evoke devious Mad Men-era modernist decor, or coded wall accents conveying secret messages. In this they are not unlike the social rituals and ordinary human interactions that inspired her to make them in the first place. — D. Eric Bookhardt

Actor’s Theatre of New Orleans,

review Clucky Breaks

Children’s Corner in Le Petit’s second theater is up and running again. To judge by the first production, Chicken Little, grown-ups and kids are in for a good time. In the 1970s, the original Children’s Corner was shepherded by Luis Q. Barroso. This Chicken Little is a revival of a version from that era. The book and lyrics are by Ricky Graham, and the music was composed by the late Fred Palmisano. We see a delightful barnyard set by T. J. Bogan that is overrun with local poultry (“poultry in motion”). Linda Fried and Cecile Casey Covert created attractive and bright costumes. The actors’ faces are not masked, but some wear mask-like hats. Even the three-piece band wears pig-mask hats. In the classic tale, all the beasts have rhyming names: Rooster Booster (Keith Claverie), Turkey Lurkey (Carrie Black), Loosey Goosey (Caroline Langlois), Ducky Lucky (Sheila McDermott) and Henny Penny (Kristin Witterschein) — everyone except the young diva who gets top billing, Chicken Little (Piper Picus-Junius). The villain is the dandified Foxy Loxy (Samuel Dudley), who is trying to bag a bird for lunch. Taking a trick from Wile E. Coyote, he hoists an anvil on a rope and drops it on Chicken Little, who is convinced the sky is falling. She alerts all her feathered friends, and everyone agrees they must seek help from their congressman. Guess who disguises himself as that elected official and ties them up as part of a purported plan to save them? Besides his mouthwatering haul, Loxy envisions a national chain: Foxy’s Fabulous Fried Chicken. But as with Wile E., things don’t go according to plan. There are many upbeat song numbers, dances and general good cheer, and the kids in the audience sat spellbound. Jim Walpole played the piano and musically directed the show. Heidi Junius steered the enthusiastic cast with aplomb, including her daughter in the lead role. Bravo to Le Petit for bringing back the Children’s Corner. — Dalt Wonk

Victorian Secrets

For sheer crack-ups per minute, it’s hard to imagine a show will come along this fall that will deliver the laughs of The Mystery of Irma Vep, now in a limited run at Le Chat Noir just in time for Halloween. Ricky Graham and Varla Jean Merman (the drag persona of actor Jeffery Roberson) take on seven or eight or nine characters — it’s hard to keep track — in a quick-change comedy by Charles Ludlam that manages to send up horror movies, Victorian novels and Alfred Hitchcock-style blackand-white parlor dramas. Lord Edgar of Mandacrest (Graham) has married Lady Enid (Merman) and spirited her away to his estate on the spooky English moors, where they’re tended to by Jane the housemaid (also Graham) and a hunchback stableman named Nicodemus (also Merman). But there’s a sinister oil portrait of the former lady of the house, Irma Vep (Merman again) over the fireplace, and a wolf — or is it a werewolf? — prowling outside in the fog. That’s the plot, and that’s all the actors need to keep the jokes coming at a machine-gun rate. The costumes (by Cecile Casey Covert) are so clever that the offstage changes are nearly instantaneous; Roberson, as the bald, one-legged hunchback, lopes offstage and reappears within seconds as the proper Victorian Lady Enid, looking like a Saints linebacker wearing a floral refrigerator cozy. Graham and Roberson, who also co-directed the show, couldn’t resist punching it up with a few New Orleans references (always a crowd hit in this town), and the mood lighting by Su Gonczy and many sound cues by Thad Griffin are a cinematic tour de force. James Jennings’ drawing-room set (which is full of secrets) is a marvel of detail in a tiny space, and includes an oil portrait that actually drips blood. But the show belongs to Graham and Roberson’s lunatic energy and sense of timing, and in Act 2, when Roberson takes on yet another persona as an Egyptian pyramid guide and enters the theater riding a camel (which spits water at the audience), it’s clear that Irma Vep is no campy goof, but something vastly grander and more mad, where Shakespearean declamations give way to lowbrow jokes about cocks crowing — all in less time than it takes for these guys to take off a safari suit and slip into a Rose Parade-sized dress with matching wig. — Kevin Allman

hidden off Broadway near the Tulane University Square complex. Proximity to the Tuesday site of the Crescent City Farmers Market gave the place an early boost, and Benson’s concise, exactingly executed menu has done the rest. In the morning, the small, open kitchen is busy with baking activity, though the actual breakfast choices are limited and few customers are about. Scones and muffins are inexpensive quick bites and as good as the ambient aromas in the room promise. Tartine also joins the short list of places to get a decent bagel in New Orleans, though the tepid, self-serve coffee is on par with the office breakroom standard. Things get moving by noon, and the place may feel a bit froufrou compared with the gruff warmth of typical New Orleans lunch joints, but you should have no fear of leaving hungry. In addition to the generously piled tartines, the conventional sandwiches pack a wallop too. A rotating roster of salumi and fresh mozzarella fills a ciabatta roll, and the ham sandwich spills open with equal amounts of thinsliced meat and Brie. Those after a salad will find the beautiful tuna Niçoise rippling fresh, squeaking with oil and draped by intense sardines. It’s hard to resist something sweet on the way out the door. Dark chocolate bark with salty cashews is bagged like bake sale goodies and peanut butter fudge sits in little single-serving cups like dessert shots. Tartine is indeed much different than our typical neighborhood cafes, but it’s the kind of place I’d be delighted to find anywhere.

Try upscale comfort food at the new bistro Sylvain (625 Chartres St., 265-8123; www.sylvainnola.com). Sean McCusker refurbished the space, which was previously La Marquise Pastry Shop but has sat vacant for years. His menu includes appetizers like roasted beet bruschetta and entrees including porchetta-style roasted pork, braised garlic sausage with Napa cabbage, duck confit, pastas and sandwiches.

2009 Ken Forrester Petit Rose Stellenbosch, South Africa / $10 Retail

Full-flavored rosés from the south of France have been hot in a cool sense for quite some time. Spain, Italy and other Old and New World countries also produce top-notch, bone-dry rosés. This bargain bottling from South Africa’s noted Stellenbosch district in the Western Cape is a rousing rendition. Made from 51 percent Cabernet Franc and 49 percent Merlot, it exhibits bright bouquets of rose petals and red berries, with fresh strawberry, cherry and watermelon flavors and a touch of spice. It’s crisp with a nice acid balance on a lingering finish. Drink it with tuna, cassoulet, chicken, soups, salads, pastas, cheeses and charcuterie plates. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle and The Wine Seller. Drink it at: Boucherie. — Brenda Maitland

o Frenchman would recognize as his own the distinctively airy, outsized po-boy loaves New Orleanians call French bread. But take that same Gallic visitor to Tartine and I’m confident he’d feel more at home. This small, exquisite bakery and cafe opened earlier this year at the edge of Uptown’s Black Pearl neighborhood and is off to a roaring start. Its name is a French term for buttered bread, though in practice, tartine makers rarely stop there. The examples at Tartine are essentially open-face sandwiches made on narrow, crusty, dense and chewy baguettes slathered with savory spreads and loaded with charcuterie. My favorite tartine is smeared with sharp Dijon and sweet onion jam and lined from end to end with house-made pate cut into thick triangle shapes, all gorgeously mottled with herbs, crushed pistachio and dark bits of dates. It looks more like a decadent presentation of hors d’oeuvres than a sandwich, and a precise side salad of lentils or black-eyed peas completes the spread. Another tartine made with pork rillettes tastes as meaty and rich as duck confit, and though the rillettes themselves need a little more seasoning, a few strategically placed cornichons make each bite pop. Tartine is run by Cara Benson, a New Orleans native who was the pastry chef at Muriel’s Jackson Square prior to striking out on her own. Her husband Evan Benson, a chef at the catering company Joel’s Grand Cuisine, is responsible for the charcuterie. The building they took over, a former salon, is well
