BossHogs.jpgFrenchmen Street, known for its music clubs and uniquely New Orleanian vibe, has a distinctly not-New Orleanian visitor for the Mardi Gras weekend: a county fair-style corndog stand.

Frenchmen Street, if not carefully monitored and nurtured with respect, could easily become Bourbon Street Junior." [Offbeat]
