Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

Take a rainy afternoon and spend it poring over ward maps of New Orleans. It’s fascinating. I pay particular interest to the 9th because that’s where I live. It is absolutely enormous; rivaled only by the 15th.

Louisiana Daily Photo: Miss Tee Eva In Central City

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

Eva Louis Perry, one of the finest praline makers to ever draw a breath in New Orleans, prepares to set up her booth at Super Sunday near Shakespeare Park in Central City.

Miss Tee Eva passed away last year at the age of 83.

25 years earlier, Perry, along with Ernie K-Doe’s widow Antoinette, formed the Ernie K-Doe Baby Dolls and was credited with helping revive the baby doll tradition.

If you rolled on a second line in New Orleans anytime in the past 30 years you definitely saw Tee Eva on the route with a big basket stuffed full of miniature pies and sugary pralines.

There will never be another like her

Louisiana Daily Photo: Behind The Bar At Lou And Bob’s In Metairie

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

Lou and Bob’s is a classic, old line New Orleans neighborhood joint. It’s in Metairie but barely over the Parish line. New Orleanians crowd in here to drink cold cheap beer and blow smoke rings towards the ceiling. If you squint through the haze you can imagine what life was like in these parts 40 years ago.

I dashed into On Faith Donut Shop in Central City to grab a quick sugar fix during a second line. The earth didn’t move but if I was back in the neighborhood I’d happily visit again. Great outsider art on the exterior walls too.
