Michael Kendrick has been dancing since before he could get away with wearing a mustache to sneak into PG-13 movies. Just 9 years old when he fell in love with dance, Kendrick was already teaching the art form at age 14. His passion remained with him as he served as an infantry paratrooper in the US Army, where he was cast as Sonny LaTierre in a national production of Grease. After working for Fred Astaire Dance Studios for more than a decade, Kendrick decided to draw on his experience dancing and his certification in aerobics instruction to helm One Rhythm Dance. As the owner, he curates workshops and classes focused on sharing ballroom dancing with anyone inspired to learn.

As they learn fundamental ballroom steps in these sessions, spouses strengthen their relationships and have fun instead of spending another Friday searching for doubloons in the junk drawer.
Before Emigdio Raymundo was in the restaurant business, he owned and managed a furniture warehouse?in the very building that now houses Louisiana Street Grill. Raymundo's knowledge and love of furniture now adds to his restaurant's ambiance, from his hand-carved cedar-wood bar to the rest of his hand-built furniture. But he also loves food, and that's clear as well: the daily baked house bread comes from his original recipe, for starters. Other made-from-scratch food includes wood-fired steaks and seafood, complemented with hand-crafted cocktails, beer, and that "ahhhhh" sound made when sinking into one of the comfortable chairs here.
