" T F Though visitors descend on New Orleans for the Big Events, ready to blow wads of cash for the privilege of being irresponsible, the Tulane student is aided by a wonderful paradox of The City that Care Forgot: Overall, it ' s not a bad place to be poor. Unlike New York, Washington, Houston, or Miami, much of the good life here is cheap. You could drink a few Dixies, stroll around the Quarter, throw a crawfish party, and cap the day off at Cafe Du Monde without assassinating more than two Lincolns. 286

St. Charles Avenue is the sight of many mansions. The Trolley travels between Canal Street and Canrolton Avenue. Although not the quickest mode of transportation, it is a pleasent way to spend an hour. Tulane ' s presidential mansion, presently the home of The Kelleys, stands tall at the corner of Audubon St. and St. Charles. Once a landmark of the Uptown area, Sugarbowl stadium was leveled this year. Ironwork fences limit passersby to long glances of this stately house. ? 285

Culinary and Bibulous Delights Eating and drinking is New Orleans. Everyone has their mouth open in New Orleans — if you ' re not eating, you ' re talking about it. Residents eat just about anything. There is, of course, the ubiquitous seafood; every possible vertebrate and invertebrate aquatic species in the area is consumed with an almost religious fervor — either raw (as in oysters, for the less squeamish) or cooked in a thousand different ways. " Po-boys " are another staple New Orleans Item. These sandwiches are created by slapping anything from fried oysters to roast beef between two long slices of french bread, and " dressed " to your palate ' s content. Just as important as the food are the places where it is eaten. The dining out experience runs the gambit from the haute cuisine of Antoine ' s to the corner bar ambiance of Parasol ' s. Perhaps it is this mixture of wide-ranging dining atmospheres combined with the strange, somewhat exotic delicacies of New Orleans ' culinary culture that gives the Crescent City eating its bewitching flavor. Drinking is also a popular, if not overindulged, pastime in New Orleans. Accord- ing to unofficial statistics, the Crescent City has more bars per capita than any other city in the country. Natives (and converted Tulane students) are quite fond of their local Dixie beer. This brew, gives the national brands a run for their money in the local market. As with the food, the watering hole itself is as important as the " water. " Whether it ' s Pat O ' Brien ' s, Fat Harry ' s, the Napoleon House, or Nick ' s, one can be assured of a great time drinking in the City that Care (and Sobriety) Forgot.
