Y@ Speak: Daydrinking season

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2012 at 11:49 AM


On the heels of daytime events and festivals like Red Dress Run and with Saints games on the horizon, we officially enter that time of the year for eye-openers and very, very early happy hours — it's daydrinking season! Grab a go-cup and try not to annoy everyone around you. Also this week: current Hornet Anthony Davis, former Hornet Chris Paul and the rest of Team USA basketball pick up some Olympics gold, Romney picks his veep (not Bobby Jindal) and tweeters describe plenty of non-annoying "only in New Orleans" moments.

Y@ Speak 8/6-8/12
