Posted // January 7,2009 - New Orleans is a fantastic, fun city—in parts. What’s your favorite fun town?n

Ben Rosch: New Orleans is fun. I peed my name on a wall there. However, I think that Austin, Texas, is in the top “fun” towns of the country.

Manda Bull: Amsterdam! It’s a beautiful, walkable city that has many adult substances and activities to choose from. Plus, you can play the “pick your favorite prostitute” game while cruising the Red Light District.

Jeremiah Smith: Actually, New Orleans is my favorite fun town. I had my honeymoon there and have been back—it has been fantastic every time. I love the atmosphere in the French Quarter and the simple fact that nudity and public intoxication are par for the course. I love it there; may the Gulf never swallow it.

Cody Winget: Portland, Ore. Jon, Chris and Voodoo Doughnuts’ bacon maple bars at 3 a.m. after a night of drinking at the amazing bars. Good times. I’ll be back soon.

n

Paula Saltas: I love San Francisco. The best restaurant there is Kokkari. The best yearly event is Bay to Breakers. That one is a must! You can wear whatever you want, or nothing at all. It sure opened up my kids’ eyes. OK, so it isn’t totally kid-friendly, but, oh well.

n

n

Derek Jones: I’m a fan of any place with a giant liquor emporium, like Sam’s in Chicago.

n

n

Annie Quan: New York City! It’s the greatest all-night party town. Cheesy slices at 4 a.m. Dancing till 6 a.m. And I get to go with my favorite person in the whole wide world every fall, just in time to see the leaves change in Central Park.

n

Susan Kruithof: I’m a Midwestern gal, so I like Midwestern towns. Like Chicago. But Madison, Wis., is it for me. Great college-town vibe. If you’re ever there, stop at Jolly Bob’s for the best Caribbean dishes and drinks anywhere.

n

Scott Renshaw: San Francisco is much like New Orleans in that it’s a tourist-friendly city that also has a unique authenticity. It all depends on the kind of “fun” you want to have whether you’d find it in the “tourist-friendly” part or the “authentic” part.

n

n

Nick Clark: Dodging drunk bicyclists in the wee hours in Portland, Ore. is my definition of fun.

Bryan Mannos: San Francisco, hands down—nice climate, great food, lots of weirdness, much art, fewer shotguns and it’s theologically impaired. That said, San Francisco’s not worth the price of rent to stay compared to home. tttt
