Mary Jane's Emporium makes seven.

Our little neighborhood tobacco shop, Mary Jane’s Emporium, is celebrating seven years in business this week. According to Lower Decatur Street lore the shop opened it’s doors at 1229 Decatur Street on September the 9th, 1999. In honor of the occasion they are having a Party Like It’s 1999 Sale, which means a 17% or more discount on many of the items in the shop, with the biggest exception being tobacco. “We’re already too damn cheap on smokes”, laughs the manager. Sale ends September 30th.

The diabolical little caffine elves at Cafe Envie are at it again.  What better way to lure people to your place than cheap booze with breakfast.  Just in time in for the merriment surrounding Southern Decadence they’ve unveiled their latest special offering.

Breakfast is served 7am-2pm at 1241 Decatur Street (corner of Barracks).  They also have Gourmet coffee drinks, sandwiches, pasteries, desserts, and a full bar with some of the tastiest absinthe in the French Quarter.

Good only through August 30 – September 4.
