Why New Orleans is different

New Orleans is just different than the rest of the United States.

This is a concession stand set up by the volunteer charity for a Catholic Church school, at the start of the Mardi Gras parade route on St. Charles Avenue at Napoleon Street. The Fathers' Club of the Academy of the Sacred Heart is running a fundraising operation.

Check out the sign.

They're selling beer and booze in go-cups. Daiquiris are $10. Refills are only $7.

I love New Orleans.

I know...the people are friendly too and you can loose your sanity and sleep visiting Bourbon Street....Play it again Sam, on the piano! How is the weather?!

(I went to Jesuit High School. They never gave us daiquiris in go-cups!)

New Orleans really is a funky European city stuck in the American Deep South.

That is quite the combination of the Mardi Gras spirit and Catholics... the ones I know are fun drinkers ;)
