Hollygrove-Swirl Synergy, 'Bible-Thumping' Banned on Bourbon and More

FAUBOURG ST JOHN? Starting February 11, fans of the weekly produce box from Hollygrove Market & Farm can now pick it up at Swirl Wines near the fair grounds. Pickup is Saturdays between 4-6, during which time chef Richard Papier will be cooking dishes with the box's contents. The shop will offer half-priced glasses of wine to pair with those dishes.

FRENCH QUARTER? Apparently it's actually illegal for religious demonstrators to stand on Bourbon Street and shout at people with bullhorns, as the sometimes do. A provision banning this sneaked into a law banning "aggressive solicitation" by people asking for money. [TP, Youtube]

FAUBOURG MARIGNY? There's apparently a new fine-dining restaurant just off of Frenchmen, called Melange. It's got "contemporary cuisine" by chef Brady Broussard. Open for dinner nightly and brunch on the weekends, with live jazz Thursday to Sunday. [Gambit]
