Sink or swim with the new issue of Lagniappe, where we explain what happened behind the scenes at GulfQuest that led to the $60 million maritime museum’s closing this week – just 15 months after it originally opened. After an initial $20 public investment, the museum board recently requested an additional $1.8 million from the city to cover expenses. The city agreed, but only if the museum would temporarily mothball and reorganize. In Bay Briefs, we discover how a revenue shortfall is going to impact the Baldwin County District Attorney, and we explain how the Navy secretary’s retirement could affect Austal in Mobile. Cuisine puts a new spin on Thanksgiving, Arts reviews the Joe Jefferson Players’ production of “The Producers,” and music talks to songwriter Kevin Russell about his band Shinyribs. Commentary also hits on GulfQuest and the election, and film tells you where you can watch a free screening of “USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage.” There’s a new coffee shop coming to town, find out where in business, and sports profiles the local teams that won statewide volleyball titles. Boozie cruised with Lagniappe staff to the fair and Oyster Cook-Off. Read all about in the new issue of Lagniappe, online and on stands now!
