Is there any other kind? ;)

The Zydeco Festival is going on at the same time. Two festivals for the price of one.

local dialect, mouthful of tomato, belly full of beer = I'm not understanding a thing you just said

Isn't tomatoes and beer a recipe for explosive diarrhea?

If it is, you're doing it wrong.

Seems like there's a festival every weekend down there.

Isn't everything?

In my country we already have a festival dedicated to the drinking of beer. It's called "any day with a Y in it". Though I guess the adding of a fruit might break the monotony.

Two separate festivals actually, one for tomatoes, the other for beer. Always something going on here. Yesterday the block of St. Charles was closed off in front of Fat Harry's and there was a huge crowd. Even more people were walking/running across the bridge.  This despite lousy weather this weekend.

You must not frequent many NOLA Threads on Fark. Or you've learned to ignore all the bitter, jealous crybabies that still claim Katrina was a good thing. Either way, we've got a cold waiting on you!

The hot muggy oppressive months are some of the things I love most about Louisiana... because more than anything it means FESTIVAL SEASON!! look at this:  http://www.louisianatravel.com/festival-listings and that's not even a complete list!!

You have no reason to ever say "I have nothing to do this weekend" Lies! Get in your car and drive to Bunkie, eat some damn corn, buy a shirt, listen to music, dance, drink some beer... seriously. Louisiana summers are amazing.

I hate having to work weekends :( I feel like I never get down to NOLA enough even though I'm only an hour away :(

It's got its ups and downs. The part I miss most about living there is that there was always something going on during the weekends. Somewhere within an hour of New Orleans you can find some kind of festival somewhere. It's cheap to live there but if you have kids you'll want them in private schools which will cost $15k+ per student per year. It's a great place to live for a couple years as a single person or a couple without kids. By then you'll be able to make up your mind about living there.

Where else do you find an open container law that says if you have an open container of alcohol, try not to spill it?

BTW, in addition to the big festivals we also have events like the Rockin' Strong for Johnnie benefit to help raise money for a NOPD officer shot several weeks ago. They get some of the best local bands, good food, and cold beer; what more could you want?

Yes, during the spring through the summer its "festival season".  Not always in NOLA proper, but there's always something within driving distance.

Yeah, its not for everyone.  I love it (obviously, I moved here on purpose).  Its not the greatest place for raising kids if you don't have a lot of money.

Not to be Debbie Downer, but if you're prone to problems with alcohol, its not the place for you.

Otherwise, its the most free, strange, fun city in the country.  IMHO.

But again, its not for everyone.  Which is totally cool.  Everyone's different.  I obviously know why many love it here, and I also know why people can't stand it here.

These recipes reminded me of the old Peter Cook and Dudley Moore routine, The Frog and Peach.

Wrong season for colds here.  We do have amoebic dysentery and hepatitis A waiting on you, though.
