Sidney And Sidney's Liquor Store In New Orleans

Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
I first knew Sidney in 1965 and 1966 when he ran a newstand on Decatur Street. He sold lots of papers and magazines.
But when we came back to New Orleans on a visit in 2002 I found he no longer ran a newstand he then ran a liquor store.
He was there and remembered me. He and his family were gathered to celebrate his 76th birthday. They were taking pictures. I looked around and spotted a basket filled with Pecan Praline Liqueur like the ones shown in the post below this one. I bought a bottle.
   When we were checking out of our hotel I showed it to a bellboy as I was packing the trunk of the car. He said "That would be good over vanilla ice cream". And he was so right.
Now I see Sidney has passed on. He left New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina but his store lives on.
 That is Sidney looking like he did in 2002 when I last saw him in his store.
Click on the above to read his obituary.

See the post below this one for more on Pecan Praline Liqueur.

Pecan Praline Liqueur Over Vanilla Ice Cream

This is very good sprinkled over vanilla ice cream.
But it is hard to find except in New Orleans at Sidney's Liquor Store on Decatur Street in the French Quarter across from the French Market.

Erika Lewis & Tuba Skinny - Careless Love

Loose Marbles - Silver Bell

This is not tuba skinny but it has Shaye Cohn in it so that is good enough for me.
