You don’t have to be an actual gardener, professional, or otherwise, to appreciate the abundant beauty of the local flora, from our magnificent live oaks and palm trees all the way down to the monkey grass. It’s a verdant city, and we love it that way.
New Orleans has 300 years of coffee history attached to it (eat it, Seattle), so of course it’s an important part of life down here. But since it’s so damned hot down in this town most of the year, iced coffee is often the preferred way to get your fix while simultaneously keeping you away from spontaneous human combustion.
Taking your drink with you to go from one bar or restaurant to the next, or just to enjoy outside as you stroll through the streets or laze on a picnic blanket, is simply one of the best things about this city. Well, after the music, the food, and the architecture, and the friendly locals. In fact, do you know what people in this town truly love more than anything?
Yeah, it’s a tautology, but one we’re sticking by: New Orleanians love New Orleans. QED and yeah, you rite!
