Photo |  Share the beach – DI

Big gator recently spotted sauntering on the beach at DI’s West End.

The Nappies are here, the Nappies are here! Congrats to all of the finalists and winners in the 2018 Nappie Awards! I am counting on some major misbehavior from you guys on Friday night. Don’t worry, I’ll jot it down and you can find it here next week. And y’all have never let me down before on this, so I have faith in you. Please, no flashing in the Photobooth this year. Or actually, I guess I should say, keep up the good work!

Anyway, the dog days of summer always leave me scraping for scoop but I gathered up a little bit for you here to hold us over until next week! Enjoy!

MOB Music Fest has strong debut

The inaugural MOB Music Fest took place last weekend and the attendance was really strong, especially considering Mother Nature did not cooperate the whole weekend. The free, three-day event offered a diverse lineup of acts, including The Underhill Family Orchestra, Johnny Hayes, Mob*Ill, Yeah, Probably and 2 Major Twinz, among many others.

The crowd was especially robust during ArtWalk on Friday night, which also saw many of the politicos downtown pressing last-minute flesh. Whew! I’ll be glad when all of that mess is over. Can’t wait for MOB Fest next year!

Gator spotted on DI

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, a large gator was spotted sauntering on the beach on the West End of Dauphin Island last weekend. With jellyfish and sharks and now gators, I don’t think I’ll be doing much more than dipping my tootsies in the water. Yikes! Wonder if they will allow you to enter a gator into the Dauphin Island Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo? Asking for a friend. At the very least, this could make the Liar’s Contest very interesting this year.

Vigilante dog hunters in midtown?

Lately there have been numerous disturbing reports of dogs going around attacking and killing cats in midtown, which, of course, is horrible. But maybe making the situation even worse is that we have gotten reports here at Lagniappe World HQ that there are folks saying they are going to go around and shoot these offending dogs. Yikes! Bullets can stray! How do you know you are shooting the murderous dogs? What if you kill someone’s pet? Don’t dogs get due process? These are just questions to ponder before dispensing your own brand of canine justice. Just sayin’! In the meantime, keep your cats (and apparently your dogs) inside, err’body!

Just asking …

Why were a bunch of grown men standing outside of Heroes Downtown last Sunday morning wearing really short, short jorts as someone filmed them? It also appeared they had a lot of stuffing in said jorts — in their “package” areas. Hmmmm … the world may never know.

Well kids, that’s all I got. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous or some plain ol’ DI gator lovin’. I will be there. Ciao!
