Photo du Jour: The Dixie Brewery
Ever since KTMB, every now and then there is some building or some place in New Orleans that all of the sudden pops into my mind that I forgot completely about that based on its location I know got a ton of water. The latest example of this for me was the Dixie Brewery on Tulane Avenue. I don't recall hearing anything about what the status of the 98 year old brewery post-KTMB but a quick google query retrieved this. It says the owners plan to return--so thats good to hear. You know, maybe they should just relocate the operation to that hurricane free zone of Orlando like Ruth's Chris Sellout. You know, it doesn't have to be IN New Orleans to be New Orleans as R'sC Sellout's CEO Craig S. Miller believes. (Sorry, couldn't help myself). The high water line in this area appears to be about seven or eight feet. Other well-known businesses in this area are Joe's Bike Shop, Bud's Broiler (the original one I think--the yellow building in the above picture), and Nick's (Original Big Train Bar) which is directly across the street from the brewery--oh, and a bunch old seedy 1950ish motels--which have amazingly mostly been gutted already.
