Big Freedia

Big Freedia has brought bounce — a hyper-speed, dirty dancin’ New Orleans style of hip-hop created in the 1980s — to the mainstream. The Guinness World Record setter for “Most People Twerking Simultaneously” has rightfully earned her title as the Queen of Bounce. After dropping her well-received LP Just Be Free in ’14, Freedia even had notoriously hard-ass Pitchfork media swooning. Preferring to be addressed as “she,” Freedia is more than happy to be labeled as an openly gay rapper, especially in the changing climate where rap's homophobic ice caps have begun to melt away. Between collaborating with original Supermodel Of the World RuPaul (“Peanut Butter”) and reluctant pop star Sia (“Eye of the Needle”), Freedia can also check off reality star as one of her lifetime achievements. Her award-winning Fuse TV show, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, documents her enviable-but-real life on the road, in the process giving the zero-talent Kardashian Klan a bad name (like Karcrashian). Although twerking was brought into the mainstram — not invented — by Miley Cyrus, Big Freedia’s OG booty is in all the right places as she twerks her way into your heart (and your pants).

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
