This is a town that loves to eat, but not just in restaurants.
Stay in it long enough, and you’ll inevitably wind up going out with the Big Easy’s archetypal characters, and should you be unclear on these stereotypes, here are the ones that tend to stick out when you’re looking for love in the Crescent City: Every game, every festival, every play, every local indie screening, every parade, every show, every happy hour... The phrase “let’s just chill out this weekend at home,” is entirely alien to them.Their first six to 12 months here are the best, since they’re eager and excited to learn every aspect of the city and its culture, and, should you be a native or a longtime resident, you can have a ton of fun exploring neighborhoods, restaurants, bars, and music clubs with them and showing them the ropes (they will have much in common with the NOLA FOMO at this point).Being with them for their first Mardi Gras will make you glow like a new parent.Here are some of the bigger things that set this town apart when it comes to the delicate art of courtship. Not just "hanging out" or "hooking up" (though those happen, too -- this isn’t Pleasantville), but a pre-planned afternoon or evening of events. Sure, but learning to appreciate the art of the date comes with it its own benefits.It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re any good at it, you’re gonna have to move your feet and shake your butt, because everyone -- up to and including on-duty police officers -- gets into the groove here.
