    Come at 4am and eat your beignets with the local musicians. Pro tip: dont breathe out of your nose whilst beigneting unless you want a powder sugar face.

    Sure, the beignets are great, but did you know you can buy the powdered sugar from Leroy just down the street? $80 a gram sounds a bit steep, but it's a tasty pastry.
