Best Soul Food, Weird Bros at Jazz Fest, And More

NOLA— Willie Mae's Scotch House and Dooky Chase's make Thrillist's list of best soul food kitchens in the country. [Thrillist]

FAIR GROUNDS— This is what happens when a bunch of bachelor party bros from Cali come to New Orleans during Jazz Fest: "Despite what they say, you can totally get 12 guys into an Acura." [Advocate]

FRENCH QUARTER— Fear not, bachelorette parties, you too can get wild and weird with C-Tate's Saints & Sinners' $20 party bag, which includes "all you need to have a sinfully FUN party" ie. mardi gras beads, a boa, temporary tattoos and a pair of thong underwear. Order one here, but take note "*Must choose Thong size" before ordering. Category: Undies, indeed. [Eaterwire]
