The fast food invasion of Orleans Parish continues, as Hungry Howie's — a national Michigan-based pizza chain — plans to open its doors next Wednesday, August 6 at 7838 Earhart Blvd.
The 11th largest pizza chain in the nation, Howie's lays claim to the title of the first chain serving "flavor crust" pizza, featuring a number of varieties including ranch, "butter cheese" and (yes) Cajun.
Howie's joins the recently opened Maple Street Patisserie et Bistro on Earhart, adding to a once limited number of dining options in the Gert Town area.

"Louis came to me in a dream and told me to do his music but do it my way. This next record is going to be one funky-butt tribute to Louis Armstrong."
Just outside Jack's Meat Market on Derbigny and Mandeville streets tonight, about 50 people gathered behind the entire percussion unit of the McDonogh 35 marching band.
Since January, three people have been shot and killed at the intersection, and in the past two weeks, two men have been mugged nearby. But this march, says Rosie Lacy, secretary of the Faubourg St. Roch Improvement Association, was planned before the latest two incidents, one of which was the beating of the neighborhood association's vice-president Bill Murphy. The night before, local artist Christopher Brumfield was attacked in a similar fashion, and Brumfield, who has been recuperating with family in Baton Rouge, announced on his Facebook page today that he intended to move there permanently.
But with neighborhood shootings a regular occurrence in St. Roch, why should it take the mugging of two white men to get the community marching — not to mention a flurry of news cameras, New Orleans City Councilman Jared Brossett and a fleet of police officers, including New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Superintendent Ronal Serpas, on the scene?
It's a question that "T," who did not want to be named, said he asked himself when he learned about the march. "I got a friend who got shot, and nobody was asking to interview me," he said.
Diners with a craving for a legendary Lucky Dog will no longer have to visit the French Quarter to get their fix.
Beginning next Friday, August 8, Lucky Dogs will be available in all Rouses across the city, marking the first time the hot dogs have been sold as a retail product.
The Lucky Dogs will come in a five-pack, and be the same version served from the iconic, hot dog-shaped cart.
The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) and the New Orleans Film Society are presenting a summer film series called “Murals on Screen: The Work of Cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa.” The series spotlights major films shot by the legendary Mexican cinematographer, and is intended to complement NOMA summer exhibitions Rising Up: Hale Woodruff’s Murals from Talladega College and Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492-1898.
