Frenchmen's Latest Controversy, A Bayou Teche Boucherie

MARIGNY— A debate over Frenchmen's future is spawning, as Alex Rawls reports that officers have been trolling the strip to remind businesses of live music regulations. Basically, any club (or "restaurant") that opened after 2004 like Three Muses, Maison, and Bamboula's can only have bands with "no more than three musicians, and the music may not be amplified in any way." So, basically, half the entertainment you've been enjoying down there is illegal. [Advocate]

MARIGNY— Lawyer Owen Courreges also weighs in on the Frenchmen Street debate, rendering it quite ugly, especially because "other venue owners on Frenchman who are not subject to these dubious restrictions are supporting them for selfish reasons." [UptownMessenger]

QUARTER— This is your last chance to gobble up one of the few remaining seats left for tomorrow night's annual Feast of the Seven Fishes at GW Fins. $70 for Dinner/wine pairings. Call (504) 581-3467 for reservations. [EaterWire]

LGD— Laura McKnight reports on a few boozy happenings around town, including this: "Bayou Teche Brewing's new Loup Garou Belgian Stout claws its way into Avenue Pub on Sunday (Dec. 15) with a celebratory boucherie during the Saints-Rams game." Kick off is at 3:25, and plates of food should go for around $10. [NOLA.com]
