ORLEANS PARISH? the NOPD announced it will conduct a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in the city tonight, but where remains a mystery. This is the first time the NOPD has been so vague in revealing their checkpoint locale. []

UPTOWN? Robert Peyton swoons over croquettes at Little Korea, 3301 S. Claiborne: "They're about the size of black walnuts, and a bread crumb-coated exterior gives way to a filling of mashed and cubed potatoes, shredded carrots and onions and bits of hard-boiled egg." Of the accompaying sauce: "it was a pretty damn good match for the croquettes." []
