McMillian is So Smooth, New Pie Shop Uptown, More

QUARTER? Restaurant critic Robert Peyton writes about MOTAC founder/legendary barman Chris McMillian(now behind the bar at Kingfish) this week: "I've... seen McMillian deal, calm as a monk, with drunken assholes. I guess his zen-like ability to deal with problem customers is the result of long experience." [HautePlates]

NOLA? Chris Waddington of the Times-Pic has a glimpse at all the festivals happening this weekend from the Slidell Crawfish Cook Off to Fortier Fest (btw, signs along Esplanade say that Allen Toussaint is going perform). [NOLA.com]

UPTOWN? Brand new pie shop P's & Q's (Pies and Quiches) at 5720 Magazine near Whole Foods is opening today. Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. you can get $20 whole sweet pies, and $4 small sweeties. Plus savory options like individual green curry chicken pot pies for $7. And, erm, they look flippin' good, y'all. [Facebook]
