IRISH CHANNEL - Still trying to figure out Father's Day gifts? Local purveyors of deliciousness Sucre and NOLA Brewing have teamed up to combine chocolate and beer, and all you need to do is shell out the bucks at both places to make Sunday a winner. Tariq Hanna used NOLA Brewing's Irish Channel Stout to make a special "Father's Day Stout Chocolate." After hitting Sucre on Magazine, head to Breaux Mart to pick up a four-pack of ICS cans or down to the river to the brewery to purchase a growler directly at the source. [Eaterwire]

NOLA - Sociologically speaking, the go-cup culture is where it's at, according to this article in Pacific Standard Magazine. "All Hail New Orleans' Go Cup," the headline triumphantly orders, and the author has this also to say about experiencing the go-cup culture with a friend: "...we internalize rules invented by humans to the point where they feel like laws of nature. In our daily lives in Los Angeles, California, where we both live, we hang out together and drink alcohol under the local regulations. We rarely feel constrained by these because we forget that it could be another way. This is the power of culture to make alternative ways of life invisible and, as a result, gain massive public conformity to arbitrary norms and laws." [Pacific Standard]
