06-24-2015: Killer Poboys, Pursuit Kickstarter, and NOLA Fade

NEWS

In the wake of a mass shooting that took nine black lives inside a historic South Carolina church, almost instantly setting off a national movement to scrub public spaces of the Confederate flag, New Orleans may be in for its own hard discussion about the merits of so many official tributes to a past scarred by racism.

EAT

If you haven’t tried Killer Poboys, you’ve been missing out. This hidden gem in the back of bar Erin Rose is the home of one of the best sandwiches in the French Quarter. Made on bread from the Vietnamese bakery Dong Phuong, these poboys are truly gourmet quality. Open Wednesday through Monday they have affordable prices and a variety of options including: roasted sweet potato, seared gulf shrimp, and my personal favorite: grass-fed meatloaf.

Killer Poboys. 811 Conti St. 504-252-6745
