For all of our celebration of Brooklyn’s nightlife, with its almost non-existent last calls and bars on every corner, it never seemed like it could hold a candle to New Orleans. In New Orleans, last call is non-existent and you can wander the French Quarter, drink in hand. But DNA Info says, now, a group of residents is finally putting their foot down, drawing the line at a Habana Outpost, um, outpost, going up in the French Quarter.It would be one thing if the people behind Save Our Neighborhood were fighting the idea of “New York transplants coming to our city,” which would be a fun irony, or even if they just didn’t want Cuban food. But instead the NIMBY group is complaining that Habana Outpost would bring noise and trash and a lower quality of life to the French Quarter. Which, hey, we’re not from there, so we’re not going to immediately laugh. Just chuckle a little at the idea that a Brooklyn restaurant and nightlife would be the thing that pushed New Orleans from “decadent travel destination” to “decadent hellhole.”
Brooklyn now officially too crazy for New Orleans
