And that moment led eventually to who he is now — owner of the popular bar, Church, located on Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward.

Someone steals Sister Louisa’s phone — and there’s a video of it

Grant Henry, the owner and "namesake" of Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium, had his iPhone stolen during Sunday Service last night and is asking the public for help.

Lesbian DJ Vicki Powell (and voted Best DJ by GA Voice readers three years in a row) was holding her popular gay-friendly Sunday Service at Church (what the bar is called by its loyal parishoners, er, patrons) when Henry, who was sitting at a table in the downstairs bar area, had his phone stolen while it was sitting on the table in front of him.
