The Yankee Tulane Grad
They share everything in common with the Recent Transplant, only they are specifically from the Northeast and their timeline peaks during their senior year as an undergrad. They’re so over Snake and Jake's. Two years after graduation, there is a high probability that they’ll be so over New Orleans.
The Not-So-Recent Transplant
Been there, done that, drank it, ate it, bought the T-shirt, wore it, then donated it to Goodwill. This person most likely moved here just before or just after “the storm” (we will not use the K word herein). You won’t have to ask how long they’ve been here, because at some point very early on they’re going to tell you. The Recent Transplant annoys the ever-loving crap out of them, and they wish people would just stop moving to their neighborhood already. Rented an apartment in the Marigny when it was still affordable for newcomers, and takes umbrage at the “Silicon bayou” techies moving in and ruining a place that “really used to have character, you know?” They are active members of an alternative carnival krewe like Krewe du Vieux or Chewbacchus, and are also in a number of community groups, most often concerned with violent crime, gentrification, Airbnb, or bike theft. They’ve finally learned how to properly and quickly peel crawfish. They are best off dating their own kind: not a native, not a newbie, but somewhere in between.
