All of the other threads are teh [old]

Going to New Orleans tomorrow through the following Saturday. My weekdays (daytime) will be booked, but I'm free otherwise. I'll be staying near the Superdome during the week; the weekend before and after will be closer to downtown, or whatever they call it (Marriott).

Any suggestions on good food, beer, entertainment, etc.?

I went in July.

One of the favorite meals was at Commander's Palace. It is expensive but worth it. http://www.commanderspalace.com/

I also really liked Le Bayou. http://www.lebayourestaurant.com/

I loved sitting in bars and listening to jazz. If you have time, check out the World War II musuem. It will easily take you a couple hours to see the whole thing.

just seeing this, so apologies if it's late - but check out Bacchanal if the weather is nice in the evening for some outdoor drinking/dining. Live music many nights, just a cool place. you'll need to cab it from downtown, but it's not too (about 3-4 miles I think)

bump.

I'll be there from a late Wednesday night to Saturday Evening in mid-September. Could potentially stay Sunday - Saints are playing either Tampa or the Browns, which I don't care all that much about.

Where are the best places to eat that we can get a reservation? Best places for Jazz? Any must-see historical sites? I love cajun and French cuisine and especially love some fresh seafood/shellfish.

^ I went this year for a weekend and I thought the brunch at Brennan's was really good but also pretty pricey

Trying to remember the place I went to...acme seafood maybe? Not bad, not great. I'm sure someone will chime in and say it is a place that only tourists go to.

^River run is worth it! New Orleans approach will keep your VFR FF through Armstrong class B and then they'll transfer you to Lakefront Tower. It's a fun 20 minutes.

Coops in the French quarter is a hole but has incredible Cajun food. Toups Meatery is also good.

^^ didn't make it. I worked my balls off making it VFR to Jackson (KMBO) and back the day before. We decided that our odds of getting weathered in there in the afternoon/evening were going to be pretty considerable, so we cnx that plan...we'll do it another time. Cruised the beaches for a while and then landed in Destin (DTS) for lunch, then some more sightseeing and back home.

This river-run of which you speak...tell me more. I was just gonna come in over Pontchartrain, as I'll be coming from the east. I assume you're talking about following the river in from Baton Rouge, coming from Corpus Christi? I mean...I could go VFR and file PCU-HMU-BTR-KNEW just for the sake of running the river. You do it at 500', maybe dipping lower if there are no people/vehicles/structures for a ways?

It's been at least 4 years since I've done it... but yes, we were coming in from the west and now that I brought up sky vector, we followed I10 and picked it up south of Baton Rouge. (about 175/10 off the LSU VORTAC) Looking at the chart, I would want to be at least 2,000 Ft to start, but I remember us being like 500 after we pass the first tower at Plaquemine (basically where you pick up the river). I wouldn't drop much lower if you're not familiar with the geography. I remember there being power lines that cross that river a few times.
