Supporting Local Businesses- The French Quarter

My husband and I go to The French Quarter on Arnett Blvd about twice a month. Last night we went with another couple from Marlborough Road. I can say nothing but good things about this place!

JB Manin's Speech at the 19WCA Convention 11/22/08

JB's Speech.pdf

JB is the new president of the 19th Ward Community Association and a member here at Location19. This is an abridged verson of the speech he gave upon being elected. It outlines his hopes and intentions for the 19th Ward. I was lucky enough to be there for the real thing. I'm hoping this will be helpful for those who could not be there.

Martuciellos Bread

For anyone who shops at Wegmans on Lyell Avenue, do stop in across the street at Martuciellos. They have great bread, wonderful pastries, excellent pizzas, including many vegetarian, and calzones. This is a true old-time Italian shop that you must try. They also have a grill for eating in, and their hamburgers on the round roll are out of this world! You must try, and you will never visit McD's again! I know this isn't in the Ward, but if you venture that way, it is truly a wonderful… Continue

The Arnett - a "destination" on the North side of the 19th Ward

With all the "buzz" about Brooks Landing and the opening of Boulder Coffee, it's only fair to remind everyone reading this blog about another "destination" place that's still developing on the North side of the community.

"The Arnett" has been open less than a year in the building formerly occupied by Creator's Hands (332-338 Arnett Blvd). It's been somewhat slow going because the whole project has been developed entirely via private donations. Nevertheless, the building now features… Continue
