You Can’t Beat Wagner’s Poboy – Midnight Menu +1 – It’s New Orleans
Scott and Jane Wolfe got married and opened their first grocery store when he was 19 and she was 17. A few grocery stores later Jane and Scott were to discover a factoid about marketing that changed their lives and etched an indelibe icon into the minds of all New Orleanians. Dispensing with every other daily special in their grocery stores, Scott and Jane swung for the fences and hit a home run with their never ending meat specials. Now, all these years later, after pre katrina i.e. voluntary retirement they re back. Jane went to school and graduated with a masters in divinity from Harvard yes, the real Harvard and while she stuidied, Scott threw himself into building a new business. Melba s is a poboy shop, an art gallery, an art studio, a neighborhood meeting spot and on top of all that it s open 24 hours a day. New Orleans is not short on innovators in the food, arts, entertainment and social gathering fields, but you ll go a long way till you meet folks who combine all those skills and who are this delightfully humble and understated about all their accomplishments. This is a combo fun feel good show of the year. Recorded live at The NOLA Brewing Tap Room.
