Ah, the Big Easy, famous for Mardi Gras, [[HollywoodVoodoo voodoo]], and {{Jazz}} music, despite not inventing any of these. Commonly associated with the Cajun culture, despite being a few hours away from any of it. Also, hurricanes. The French have a consulate there. Another claim to fame is the food; you can find almost any kind of seafood (except lobster) here. The squeamish can rest easy about how well-cooked their food is.
