While we have enjoyed both, and go way, way back with both, this makes me sad.

Just seeing the “old counter” at City Park brought back fond memories.

I never fully warmed to the Moring Call in Fat City, but that is just because of all my fond memories, of the French Market location.

Thanks for the update,

Hunt

That's a shame. Don't like a monopoly, even for Beignets.

Morning Call may challenge the decision in court

Cafe du Monde has 7 locations while Morning Call has just the one and Morning Call put in the highest bid.

Apparently Morning Call didn't follow the rules as specified, hence the Cafe Du Monde "win." Personally, I'd rather see MC keep the concession.

MC's position is that they were late for a meeting, which was adjourned before they arrived.

This may be the only time in the 300 year history of New Orleans that an entity was disqualified for being late.

Stated differently, it would be newsworthy if anyone actually showed up on time, except maybe for coktails

This is going to be another "ain't there no more". Rather sad!
