Black Friday – Quick Update

As I arrived early to work this morning, I had no idea what I was about witness — hundreds of people were waiting outside Storyville’s door – the majority of them overflowed onto Chimes Street.  It was an absolute crazy sight to see.  I obviously knew it was Black Friday, but knowing that we weren’t [...]

Happy Thanksgiving from Storyville!

On behalf of all of the Storyvillains in Austin, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, we’d like to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the day with friends and family.  We’re going to do the same, and we’re extremely grateful for all of the good fortune that we’ve experienced over the past three years.

New Orleans strikes back: Photo shoot defies time, space and matter

Well, well, well. It was nice to finally see the photos from the Storyville Austin photo shoot. They sure did build up some anticipation.

Check out Mammoth Visual

In 2009, we’ve spent a lot of time working with Baton Rouge photographer and filmmaker Lawles Bourque.  Lawles shot a hilarious short film for our 2009 fashion show (see it here), and he also photographed the event too (see his photos here).  Lawles even shot and edited a five-minute version of my wedding (click here [...]

Today is a huge day for the future of Baton Rouge.  Mayor Kip Holden’s bond issue will be up for a vote, and we strongly encourage you to vote for it.  The bond issue will lead to synchronization of traffic lights, an expansion of the River Center and the establishment of the first major capital [...]
