QUARTER— This Thursday, November 12, Arnaud's starts its second annual Teddy Bear Program drive, benefitting the NOPD and local youth in need—police officers hand out teddy bears to kids they come across while on duty. You can donate a NEW teddy bear at Arnaud's (813 Bienville) until December 31. [Eaterwire]

QUARTER— An ATC crackdown on French Quarter stripclubs accused of turning a blind eye to prostitution and illegal drug activity, Operation Trick or Treat, will continue through the holidays. So far, nine clubs have had booze permits yanked, with some turning BYOB and at least one— Centerfolds— closing for good. [Advocate,]

QUARTER— Broussard's and Kingfish will recreate their recent James Beard House dinner on Thursday, November 19th at 7 p.m. at Broussard's. The five-course menu will be the same as the one chefs Neal Swidler and Nathan Richard prepared in NYC back in September. Reserve a spot at (504) 581-3866. [Eaterwire]
