Bar and Owner Survive Katrina!

Good news! In Thursday's Los Angeles Times, an article by Scott Gold on the toxic water situation in New Orleans included a short interview with O'Neil Broyard, owner of the Saturn Bar, who rode out Katrina to tend to his place and all of the treasures within. We hope his pets are okay, too. Click here to access the article (registration required).

O'Neil was one of the folks profiled in our Bartenders of New Orleans Oral History Project, which was completed in March.

If anyone happens to have information relating to the whereabouts of any of our other bartender friends, please let us know. Contact Amy Evans at
