"We dance even if there's no radio. We drink at funerals. We talk too much and laugh too loud and live too large and, frankly, we're suspicious of others who don't. But we'll try not to judge you while we're in your town."
New Orleans is special because unlike Paris or New York or some other place where you have to try being cool or try looking like you're not trying to be cool, New Orleans always accepts you for who you are. You can go just about anywhere with anyone and fit right in, so long as you're friendly and open to new things. Yeah, the city might sometimes smell funny and there are pot holes that could swallow a small child whole, but as far as Good People go, it doesn't get better than here.
