Something good is about to unfold in-between those bread slices, and it’s not the fried bologna or the potato chips. It’s the story. And this city definitely isn’t short of food stories, which is why we’re beyond proud to be named as one of Garden & Gun's "Best Food Towns of the South." Do you remember your first New Orleans meal?

On Sundays in the fall, 76,468 fans go to church. They walk down the aisles in droves, dressed in their finest black and gold, and chant the only hymn they know, "Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say they gonna beat dem Saints?" But on August 29, 2005, a storm came, and church closed. The Superdome became a temporary shelter for those who had nowhere else to go, and football took a rightful and painful backseat to the rebuilding of the city. After 13 months in exile, the Saints returned to the Dome for Monday Night Football against the rival Atlanta Falcons. Then came the miracle. Well, a small miracle. But it was ours, and we needed it. The Saints forced a Falcons 4th down on the opening series. On the next play, Steve Gleason, a little-known special teams player, flew up the middle and blocked the punt. Curtis Deloatch recovered it for a touchdown as millions screamed, cried, and danced. Television commentators waited as the deafening sounds of the Dome announced the city’s comeback in prime time. And oh, was it loud. Today, Steve Gleason remains a symbol of the city’s rebirth and resilience. His ongoing fight with ALS has come to represent New Orleans’ "No White Flags" mentality, and his foundation brings support to those fighting along with him. #OneTimeInNOLA

From the 1920s to 1960s, Bourbon Street was awash with men and women dressed to the nines in search of glittering depravity. Bawdy singers, comics, burlesque dancers — they catered to the lowbrow tastes of a highbrow clientele. District Attorney Jim Garrison wasn't keen on the street's less savory side, so he spent the early 1960s raiding his way up and down the block, crippling the raucous spirit of Bourbon Street. But five years after Garrison declared war, an enterprising genius discovered something to fill its place: window hawking. Tiny operations began opening in windows, carriageways, doors. They sold booze in glass cups and food to be taken on the road. Just like that, the go cup was born, and it's been living on the streets of New Orleans ever since. What's in your go cup? Tell us with #OneTimeInNOLA.

Mississippi bluesman, Bo Diddley, helped morph blues into rock and roll with his tight, syncopated guitar licks. You might know it as the "Diddley Beat." Ask Buddy Holly about it. Or the Rolling Stones. While Bo's hasty strum pumped through the speakers at the 1990 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, a four-year-old boy in the crowd was starting a legacy of his own. Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews was playing a parade on the side of the stage when someone lifted him up, trombone and all, and passed the young prodigy off to surf the wave of concertgoers to the stage. When Shorty reached Bo, he was shell-shocked, but Bo was composed. Bo hunched over, looked Shorty dead in the eye and said, "Blow. Blow the horn." The passing years have taken Bo with them, but Trombone Shorty plays on. And he, in a Hollywood ending, now annually closes out Jazz Fest’s biggest stage on its final day. Where have you seen Trombone Shorty play? Share it with #OneTimeInNOLA. Photo: visit_thnoc

#OneTimeInNOLA powdered sugar paved the way to a legacy. It was 1862. Fred Koeniger’s quaint, new French Market coffee stall was missing something. Everyone was slinging coffee in every booth down the row, but no one paired their cups with a counterpoint. Koeniger’s better half came deep fried and coated in confectioners sugar. The exact date of the beignets debut at Café du Monde is heavily debated, but you can still order up your own plate anytime you want at this Jackson Square institution. Just look for the green and white canopy on the corner.

#OneTimeInNOLA Higgins built the boats to win the war. World War II was happening across the Atlantic Ocean, but for New Orleans, it was right in our backyard. Andrew Higgins' modest New Orleans boatyard specialized in flat-bottomed vessels designed for bayou navigation (his Eureka boat was a favorite of trappers and oilmen). The unique design caught the eye of the United States Navy, and on June 6, 1944, it caught the eye of the world. Thousands of Allied soldiers started their storm with a step down the boat's bow ramp, and thousands of Allied soldiers stopped the spread of Germany's power in France. D-Day was the beginning of the end. A replica of Higgins' famed landing craft lives on inside The National WWII Museum, its ramp lowered, a reminder of the brave soldiers it carried and of one man's contribution to the war. Allied commander and eventual president Dwight D. Eisenhower said it best: Higgins was "the man who won the war for us," and his home was right here in New Orleans.
