Johnny White’s Sports Bar was a French Quarter institution that weathered the New Orleans heat and Hurricane Katrina, and provided a place of refuge for those with nowhere to go. Unfortunately, the lease for Johnny White’s ended in 2012, and the only bar open 24 hours in the French Quarter closed its doors. Marita Woywod Crandle captures the essence of this magical place in her book Johnny White’s Sports Bar: The Tiny Joint that Never Closed—Until It Did. Come on out to the Kitchen Witch Cookbook Shop this weekend to pick up a copy and meet the author of this truly unique and historic look into a hidden New Orleans gem. Ms. Crandle will be signing books this Saturday, December 15, at 2:00 p.m. Refreshments provided.
The Kitchen Witch Cookbook Shop is located at 1452 N. Broad St. Open 7 days a week, from 11:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. kwcookbooks.com
