Food, Sacred & Profane

The Sav-A-Center in our neighborhood finally re-opened last week, and I went shopping there for the first time Saturday morning. There’s a write-up at Metroblogging that sums it up nicely. It may not seem like much, but it provides a huge boost of confidence for the neighborhood. Most of the other big supermarkets in the flood zone are simply vacant, gutted shells. Not only has this store re-opened, but it’s much fancier than it was before the storm. We used to be mad at Sav-A-Center for destroying the late lamented Movie Pitchers, but that seems like ancient history. All is forgiven now. I bought some steaks to celebrate.

St. Joseph's Altar

Speaking of food, Sunday was the Feast Day of St. Joseph. Xy and I walked over to Holy Rosary and Cabrini to check out a couple St. Joseph’s Altars. And of course I took pictures.

    One of the New Orleans images which has really stuck with me is driving past devastated commercial spaces with no sign of rebuilding, and wondering how a neighborhood could possibly rebuild without a grocery store or gas station. (On the other hand, every time I saw somebody up on a ladder in a Rite-Aid, I felt a little better.)

    I’m glad to hear about this!
