Rest in peace: O'Neil Broyard, proprietor of the Saturn Bar, Bywater neighborhood, New Orleans

People treasure the Crescent City partly for its characterful saloons and barkeeps. With the passing of the Saturn Bar's proprietor, O'Niel Broyard, our attention goes once more to the Choctaw-Creole city of New Orleans.

The obit, in part: "According to a report from the Southern Foodways Alliance, O'Neil Broyard, the wonderfully eccentric owner of New Orleans' well-known Saturn Bar, passed away on Thursday, December 22nd."

You can enjoy a slice of the Big Easy's talk-and-food-centered life in this Bartenders of New Orleans interview.

Thanks to Shannon Glasheen Brock for the note.
