9. Beignets and buttermilk drops
Don’t even try to beat them. Just... don’t.
Other cities might technically have more drinking establishments numerically, but only NOLA leads the pack in the far more important bars-per-capita category.
11. Day drinking
No matter the time of day, week, or year, there will always be a cold one nearby. And yeah, it’s perfectly legal to enjoy it outside. Take that, other cities!
12. Breed musicians
Hell, we breed entire genres/musical art forms.
13. Fry things
If you’re going to be a cook in NOLA, you won’t get very far unless you know how to perfectly fry oysters, shrimp, soft shells, and pretty much anything that will fit into a tank of hot fat.
