What Not to Do in New Orleans

by Pableaux Johnson

Don't…
EAT A LUCKY DOG

If you choose to ignore Tip #1, there's a chance you'll end up thinking that the fare at Lucky Dogs' weenie-shaped carts (essentially the love child of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile and a standard NYC pushcart) will take the edge off an evening of overindulgence. Seen through the 4 am drunken haze of a rookie, the insipid, oversoaked sausages might just look good—but then, that's probably the Everclear talking. If you find yourself asking, "How nasty can a hot dog be," then you're gonna find out.

Instead…
HAVE LATE NIGHT DINNER AT THE VERTI MARTE

If you find yourself in the Quarter well past midnight and in the mood for a substantial "take the edge off" meal, make a beeline for the Verti Marte, a local corner grocery with an infamous kitchen favored by local night owls. Grab a muffuletta sandwich (savory Italian cold cuts with tangy olive salad) or one of a million po'boy combinations. Another notable late-night kitchen is Coop's Place, for Louisiana-inspired bar food.
