audio The Maple Leaf Re-Opening (re-broadcast)
The Maple Leaf Bar is celebrating the one-year anniversary today of its first post-Katrina re-opening last year. Despite the devastation of much of the city, curfews, the lack of electricity and the terror of pitch black streets, a slice of New Orleans culture was resurrected just a few weeks after Hurricane Katrina. Guitarist Walter Wolfman Washington drove all the way down from Ohio for the occasion. It was an act of defiance against hopelessness.

Allen Toussaint, "Whirlaway," New Orleans Rhythm 'n Blues, Krazy Kat (lp).

audio Brocato Love
There was a line out the door all day as residents who waited for over a year to get their favorite Italian ice or cannoli from Angelo Brocato's showed their support for a one-hundred-year-old family and neighborhood tradition.

Fresh gelato served up in brand new freezer cases.

Arthur (a grandson of the patriarch) and his wife Jolie Brocato greeted customers throughout the day.

Specialty Italian cookies lovingly made by hand are again available in New Orleans.

There was a line out the door all day.
