 Join Jeff Crouere and me at Politics with a Punch on Thursday September 19 for another unforgettable edition of Politics with a Punch, our local version of “Politically Incorrect.” It is a fast-paced, free-wheeling, no-holds barred discussion of what is happening in our city, state and nation. We place a premium on having a good time and expect plenty of laughs as we discuss the controversies and the outrageous antics of our local leaders and scoundrels.

Jeff Crouere and I launched Politics with a Punch in April of 2002 and have enjoyed 11 years of an incredible list of politicians, entertainers, media-type,  athletes, comedians and more including the likes of Governors Kathleen Blanco, Bobby Jindal,  Dave Treen, Marc Morial, Mitch Landrieu, Ray Nagin and more—and those are just the comedians.  (just kidding).

Thursday show will be held at the beautiful Eiffel Society, 2040 St. Charles Avenue. This outstanding venue offers plenty of available parking, a superb staff and tremendous amenities for Punch patrons. It has been recently renovated and looks spectacular.  Join us for this special program and enjoy another fabulous panel.

The doors open at 6 p.m. for Punch Happy Hour as the Eiffel Society bar will offer a delicious menu of specialty drinks for our patrons. As an added treat, dining will be available for our patrons at the Eiffel Society. After our event ends, we invite you to stay with us for cocktails and socializing with our fellow patrons and panelists.

Our show will begin at 8:00 p.m.  

 We’ll discuss…. Saints and LSU off to Great Start; Why all the Rain Delays? Has the NFL gone soft? Fraternity Apologizes for Kent State Sign; Peyton Wins Manning Bowl Again; Oneida Indians Want Redskins Name Kicked Off NFL Reservation; Lil’ Wayne and Justin Bieber Escort Floyd Mayweather to Ring and he still Wins; St. Bernard Water System has Brain Eating Amoeba, but Chief Says it is Safe; Crime Claims Young Victims; Nagin Trial Postponed; Rep.
