Louisiana Daily Photo: Breakfast Tacos

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

The Don Juan is the single most famous taco in Austin, Texas. Unfortunately it is also inedible. Thankfully I sprang to the rescue and penned a fresh formula that takes the Don Juan and turns it into something that is unfathomably delicious. more

I wonder what Burger’s been up to lately? He’s one of the best players in the city and I haven’t seen him on a second line in ages.

Louisiana Daily Photo: The Original Zuppardo’s in Gentilly

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

I drive from the 9th Ward of New Orleans to Metairie a few times a month to do my grocery shopping. I pass roughly 20 supermarkets to get to Zuppardo’s. There’s a real old-timey feel in that little grocery store. Unfortunately, the Zuppardo family are building an opulent emporium next door that will soon replace their current homely little business.

This is a picture of a picture.

On The Road With RL Reeves Jr: The Creole Nature Trail

On The Road With RL Reeves Jr: The Creole Nature Trail

Rolling along I-10 between Houston and Winnie, I’m eager to get off the freeway and on to the backroads of East Texas. I’ve traveled the main corridor hundreds of times over the last 30 years and there is nothing left to see – nothing left to do – on I-10. Continue reading

2019 Satchmo Summerfest Second Line

2019 Satchmo Summerfest Second Line

The Satchmo Summerfest Second Line hits at just the right part of the summer in New Orleans. The official season’s been over for six weeks and you’re just starting to get that serious itch that only a second line can scratch.

The Satchmo parade is brief; it only lasts for roughly an hour but it’s a nice little appetizer before Valley of Silent Men kick off the real season in another three weeks.

Here’s the gallery I shot this past weekend more

Louisiana Daily Photo: There Will Be No Ponderosa Stomp In 2019

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

For many years I took the 500 mile motorbike ride from Austin to New Orleans once a year to hit the Ponderosa Stomp. Promoter Dr Ike Padnos put on one of the country’s top music festivals every single year…until he didn’t.

A few years back the Stomp went biennial, and now it appears to have careered to a halt as 2019 was supposed to be an “on” year.

This is a crushing loss for New Orleans music scene as the Stomp brought many old-timer musicians out of retirement for one or two nights a year so they could revel in the adoration of their fans for one last time.

Now those old cats and kittens will miss that one last time to shine, and we the fans, will miss giving them the adulation they deserve.

It’s a lose, lose for all concerned.
