Crescent City Snow: The Ultimate Guide to New Orleans Snowball Stands

by Megan Braden-Perry


Crescent City Snow is part guidebook, part diary, and part biography of fifty snowball stands and their customers in the greater New Orleans area. Keep a copy of Crescent City Snow in the car for when you want to try a new place, and use the table in the back to record your own observations.

From the Introduction:

"Now that I’m older, my favorite thing about snowballs is that they are icy, sweet tokens of affection. You can show your feelings for someone better with a snowball than you can with a card. Think of how you felt when a friend brought you a snowball to the hospital, like my friend Erin Johnson did for me? Or when your grandfather picked you up from summer camp and took you for a surprise one? How about when you were on a date and the person you were with remembered what flavor you liked and how you liked it dressed? Or when your mom jooged your snowball for you and sipped a little juice out of it so you wouldn’t waste any? Moments like that, I treasure. They are what make snowballs more than just a snack."

Megan Braden-Perry is a native New Orleanian, Dillard University alum, and mother of a three-year-old boy named Franklin. She’s highly motivated by food and drink and, according to her friend Jenny Martin, “will talk to the devil for a sandwich.” Aside from eating and drinking, she enjoys attending cultural and political events, often with her son, as to “train up a child” in hopes he’ll do the right thing and attend an HBCU. She’s been published in Essence, NY Daily News, Jezebel, | The Times-Picayune, Gambit, and Where Magazine. She is the also the author of the children’s book, Allen the Alligator Counts Through New Orleans.
