The Ticker: See what happened “When the Levee Broke” at the Bottletree

I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays. I sort of figured that people wouldn’t necessarily get into the Year in Review series (here’s the May post with links to the others completed so far) until I posted new links to the Taylor Hicks parade images. Well, there’s still a few more months to go. It also appears that I’m one of the few folks around town that decided to take an extra day off this week. Now I’m thinking that I should have taken off the entire week.


It seems that the Bottletree is hosting a two-night “D & D” (dinner and a doc) night beginning tomorrow evening. They’ll be showing Spike Lee’s “When the Levee Broke,” a moving chronicle of the issues still facing the people of New Orleans now more than a year after the damage inflicted by Hurricane Katrina. Acts 1 & 2 will be screened tomorrow; acts 3 & 4 will be screened on Thursday. The film will begin both evenings at 8 p.m. We’ve talked about the devastation and the progress her, most notably this post with a link to images throughout the city. I have a strange feeling that more people may get it after seeing the film.

And even though it is a D & D night in Avondale, you still don’t have an excuse to not visit an area Jim N’ Nick’s tomorrow for lunch. We described the fund raising effort for Making Children Aware of Predators (MCAP) in this post. All in all, a great way to make the end of the year productive, at least in terms of helping others.

Til tomorrow,
