Coming up in this week's Gambit: The Baby, It's Cold Outside Edition

Posted By on Sat, Nov 22, 2008 at 6:00 PM

In this week's Gambit, in newsboxes on Sunday:

• I've got the cover story -- the long, strange story of the classic New Orleans sitcom Frank's Place, how it went from Emmy Awards to cancellation to absolute obscurity (no reruns, no DVD release, no nothin')...and how executive producer and star Tim Reid found the master tapes discarded in a studio Dumpster. Will you ever be able to see it again...and if you missed it, will you ever be able to see it at all? Short answer: Tim is working on it. (I watched the whole thing start to finish, and, yes, it holds up. Does it ever.)....

• We've also got our occasional guide to drinking well, Swizzle. In this edition, Noah Bonaparte Pais interviews one of the city's best barkeeps, Alan Walter of Iris, and Alison Fensterstock quizzes local musicians as to their favorite drinking songs. And there are guides to the best beers and wines for the holidays....

• In Commentary, we float a radical notion: Why not take the money from those nonworking crime cameras and reallocate the cash to new DA Leon Cannizzaro so he might actually be able to take some criminals off the street? It's so crazy it just might work....

D. Eric Bookhardt reviews Prospect.1 at NOMA, Dalt Wonk takes in the offerings at the New Orleans Fringe Fest, and Ian McNulty eats way too many oysters....

• and Greg Peters cracked me up with his latest installment of Suspect Device (hint: Stacy Head).

That's about it. See you at the Po-Boy Fest:
