We’re Headed to New Orleans on March 5!

This month we’re reading an ethnographic history of New Orleans’ founding by Shannon Dawdy.  Did you know that the French Quarter once had a moat around it and that an early City Planner beat a guy up and threw him in jail when he refused to move his house out of the way of a proposed roadway?  http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/B/bo5806997.html

We’ll be meeting to discuss this and more at the Gingerman downtown at 6 pm on Wednesday March 5.  You should join us!
