Oh, I forgot: we’ll probably be eating in the most expensive restaurant in New Orleans, but I have no idea what that place would be. Maybe JLO can tell us. If I have to put up with these three characters for an evening, someone else is going to pay the tab, and it’s going to be expensive. ☜(ˆ▿ˆc)
Probably better to do a food tour. There’s several places worth trying out. But Pat O’Brien’s is solid.
Brennans is where Bananas Foster comes from. Paul Prudhome and Emeril Legasse are associsted with Commander’s Plaace, Cafe du Monde is only beignets but worth it as there’s not many places that cpuld outdo them,
Square Root is most ecpensive with a 15 course meal.
But you can also do a High Tea, which Ive done once in my life: I thi l it was Windsor’s Court.
I know, I was joking. P’OB’s looks like a good time. I didn’t know New Orleans had a lot of Irish, but the more you know. I also have a good list of places to avoid if I ever go to the USA. Places with the highest percentage of Irish ancestry.
If the people in Liverpool didn’t leave me alone for three days, I’d dread to think what the Americans would do if they found out I lived in Ireland
I mean one of the biggest differences, here, is that the Irish and the Italain are Catholics and moved into a Catholic French/Spanish colony. Those of us who are Protestant or a derivative (like me) have lost our culture. We haven’t had the religious fights of other cities, historically, because the Protestants never had control. That’s why on most maps Coastal Louisiana is below the bible belt (which is Baptist dominated).
Yeah, I agree. Ireland in itself is becoming more diverse as well. The Paddies and the Seamuses are calming down, and there are more Patricios and Joaos. We seem to be slowly backing out of our sectarian mindset, which is good. It’s kinda annoying when people do that.
Yeah, it’s not just that. It’s when people find out you do actually lived in Ireland/are Irish, they start asking you questions like DO YOU KNOW MY UNCLE IN CORK? when Cork is almost 400 miles away from here, or AH YEAH, MY UNCLE SEAMUS LIVES IN BELFAST. SEAMUS MURPHY, DO YOU KNOW HIM? Murphy is like the most common name in Ireland, dude
Ireland is not a monolith. We have exclusive slang, exclusive foods, even have Black Irish Rappers ( wtf Ireland has a rap community?!), Halal food stores, Portuguese cafes, small variations of Chinatown, Hindu/Buddhist temples, Slavic food stores. There is this big one, and it’s mad. And EVEN REGGAETON NIGHTS For real, yes. It happens in Dublin. Dublin has a lot of Latinos, actually.
