New Orleans Hot Dog Guy Claims New Orleans is History

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

LAist is traveling around the country to find your next American Idol. But we might have already found him working behind a hot dog cart in New Orleans.

As you know we interviewed a Tower Records employee in the French Quarter and a teenage girl in the 9th Ward, but Big John might be the best take on the aftermath of Katrina.
