Re: “7th Ward hucklebuck ladies: Do they still exist?

Thank you, Gaynell. The Vallets closed their shop, but the lady on Allen Street charged about 50 cents, I think. I remember being shocked at the price still being so good.

Re: “Learning to twerk: Some notes from a pupil

Jeanie, my fellow New Orleans native, you've made me comfortable admitting my shame. I cannot pop unless I'm upside down with my feet on the wall. Big Freedia once said in a video of her classes that the key is to practice in the mirror. Another tIp: My best friend would pull up her shorts by her hips so there was more wiggle room.

Re: “NOPD "Wobble" video goes viral at Mardi Gras 2014

@Sbpfred and @Brittanie: It's embedded and has been since I posted it. You should be able see it with any browser and on Gambit's mobile site.

@Doctorobert: Let the joint burn down! :)

@Brittnie: Thought that was him! I wonder if his Wobble skills have improved. Every time I'm confronted with a public Wobble situation, I get nervous and confuse it with all the other line dances.

(For the record, I studied last year's cop Wobble video and this one and made sure they were different.)

@Tamiko Same here!

Re: “The New New Orleans: Along Saint Claude

Hey Mark,

It worked for me using Firefox and Safari. Kept messing up with Chrome. FWIW, a few days ago I couldn't hear anything on any website when I was using Chrome.

Let me know if you still have trouble.

Re: “Eve Abrams' Along Saint Claude audio documentary airs 7 p.m. Tuesday on WWNO

Oops, sorry about that. It's how they were spelled in the photos given to me and in the documentary's website, so I assumed they were accurate.

We all know what happens when we assume. :o).

Fixing them for you right now.

Re: “Santo Tequila Co. serves Mexican food from scratch in Kenner

Yeah, it probably would have been easier but, as you know, I suck with maps. I know how to get to a bunch of places, but only because of landmarks and memory. Maybe it's because so many of our streets don't have signs haha!
