Neverhood9: Elizabeth's $$$

601 Gallier St. New Orleans, LA (A little out of the way)

Recommendation: Crab Cake Eggs Benedict


They've kinda gone down hill.  I live in Bywater, many locals here would agree with me.
 
2013-01-30 01:41:33 PM

Neverhood9: Praline Bacon!


I'm going to start a To-Do list that will contain only this.
 
2013-01-30 01:42:55 PM

brap: I'm still upset that Donna's closed.  That was my favorite hangout.  They always had the best music.

:(


Didn't it open back with a new name?

I'm looking forward to Fritzels, and if it's closed, imma cry right now.

How can you bring up Elizabeth's and not mentioned the candied bacon??


I didn't. I only added the last entry.

If you want something to do earlier in the day before partying, I'd recommend a swamp tour.  Yeah, most tours down here are terribly cheesy.  I recommend against pretty much all of them, except the swamp tours.  Its the only chance you'll get to visit the middle of the bayou.  Like deep, deep into the bayou.
 
2013-01-30 01:45:34 PM

drkdstryer: ffish: drkdstryer: Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: I'm eliciting help now to carry Kyro home because, quite frankly, I'm a weakling. EIP if you'd like to volunteer.

To sweeten the deal, I'll make sure you get his BIE after the party.

\o

You could just room with them. You'd have more opportunities to sneak a peek at Kyro's glorious man-boobage in the privacy of y'all's room.

Looking in on their sexytime just wouldn't be the same if I didn't have a pane of glass between us, fogging up with my heated breath. I have a ritual, and I like to keep to it.


Just get a pane of glass and hold it up in front of you. Like this:

Oh, and I love Happy Hour at Galvez. Good drinks, one of the most awesome views around, and great food. The roasted mixed olives are to die for.

I second this.  It's pretty awesome, I've done it twice.  Once I think it was too cold and we only saw nutria, the last time I went the place was swimming with gators, which apparently love marshmallows.

Also, RE: Burbon Street.  Shilling for a friend who runs part of this, but every Friday at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse there's a Burlesque Ballroom show at midnight.

Its on Burbon, but its a totally classy joint in a classy hotel.

And its free.  Drinks are a tad bit expensive, but its totally worth it.

If you want to do it, get there early.  Seats can fill quickly.  Actually there's a band that plays before it.  I generally catch the end of that, and nab seats as people leave that show (again, all free so you can come and go.)
 
2013-01-30 01:59:41 PM
Sounds fun.   Trying to work the details out, but the wife and I may come out.
 
2013-01-30 01:59:48 PM

No.  The owners and the residents didn't like them and did everything to kill off Donna's.  :(

I'm a local too - transplanted to NOLA 10 years ago. I'm married, I don't drink and I have enough T-Shirts so I don't spend much time on Bourbon St.

Frenchman St is where the music is and there are some pretty well reviewed restaurants there too although I haven't been to them personally. There may also be a couple of food trucks on Frenchman.

Le Peniche is a quiet neighborhood restaurant a couple of blocks away from the Frenchman St mayhem and open 24 hours. They have good food, full bar and hardly ever a wait. Great late night nosh!

I really enjoy Kajun's Pub on St Claude for people watching - my wife went to the karaoke and had a blast! They had really good live Blues there this past Sunday night, really fun place. They still allow smoking which is about the only thing I don't like.

Fiorella's is about the only restaurant in The Quarter that we go to regularly. They lost their mojo for a while after Katrina but had the good sense to close down, retool and re-open and their fried chicken and Italian food is back to its former glory.

Elizabeth's in The Bywater used to be a breakfast favorite but after 3 or 4 bad experiences we gave up on them. It's been over a year since I've been there so they may be good again but I'm waiting for someone else to do that research.

I love BBQ but was never as big a fan of The Joint as lots of other people, They moved recently but they're still in The Bywater. If you're willing to travel uptown (streetcar) Squeal BBQ on Oak St. is where I go when I don't take the time to smoke my own meat. It's right up the street from Jacques-Imo's which is a loud and crowded dinner only restaurant with some great food and funky atmosphere. The Maple Leaf Bar is also on Oak and has great live local music every night.

A current favorite up by the Lakefront is Sassafras. REALLY good Soul/Comfort food. It's a small, quiet restaurant located in a small grocery store plaza. Strange location but great service and food.

A great reference for New Orleans area restaurants is NOMenu.com. It's compiled by local food critic Tom Fitzmorris who can be a little ... opinionated, but it's a comprehensive list that's up to date and useful for names, addresses,descriptions and phone numbers.

Neverhood9: While we do have gogo dancers...may not be the kind you're interested in ;)

The Bourbon Pub...aka the main gay club


I'm a to each his own person, so totally not knocking you.  Just be aware the Bourbon Pub is LOUD as hell.  I have two lesbian friends for whom that is their hangout, so I'm there often enough.  I personally hate loud bars with blaring music, but I suck it up because they're my friends.

Anyway... gay or straight (I'm straight)... it is always a wild time at the Bourbon Pub.  I recommend at least poking in (no pun intended, or maybe it is) for a few minutes.

Also, that Pub is in the sorta unofficial gay district of Bourbon, which is a lot more fun than the rest... as the over-served frat boys don't venture there as much.

New Olreans is also one of- if not the- gay friendliest cities in America.
 
2013-01-30 02:07:36 PM

X1's Here: Camellia Grill...take the St. Charles Streetcar all the way Uptown. And after you stuff yourselves there, walk across the street and stuff yourselves with more food and lots o' booze at Cooter Brown's.


The last Fark party, sometime last year I think, was at CB's. Sure hope this one pulls in more Farkers; you could hear crickets chirping at that one.

/although the quantity of farkers was small, the quality was superb
 
2013-01-30 02:08:20 PM
so, like, how does a world fark party work?  do we all come out and reveal our true identities or something?  i've said some dumb things here, i might be embarrassed.  or worse, take all the allure out of my internet presence by describing the inane pretentiousness of my handle.
 
2013-01-30 02:09:28 PM
Has anyone mentioned the New Orleans Cake Cafe on Chartres? Or even better, Jack Dempsey's in the Bywater (if you've got the wheels to get there).

Nope, as I mentioned before I don't recommend it any more.  Service went downhill, food- while the menu is technically the same and potentially awesome- can be spotty now in terms of quality.

Also, there are new brunch options in the Bywater.  I'll get a list.  I don't do brunch, so I forgot who's the best now.  My wife would know.

Trillian Astra: Has anyone mentioned the New Orleans Cake Cafe on Chartres? Or even better, Jack Dempsey's in the Bywater (if you've got the wheels to get there).


Ding!  That's what I was thinking of for brunch (they no longer do dinner, FYI).

Jack Dempsey's is just fried food, nothing you can't find in the quarter.

pute kisses like a man: i've said some dumb things here, i might be embarrassed.


It wouldn't be fark if this wasn't true about everyone.
 
2013-01-30 02:14:06 PM
Also, if you want a real awesome experience, come to Bacchanal Wine in the Bywater.  Chartres and Poland.  Outdoor courtyard with awesome (and quiet) music (so you can still have a conversation and all.)\

Awesome food.  They will have an upstairs bar with awesome cocktails by April.  (Actually, the upstairs planned opening is this weekend, for all you NOLA farkers who are looking for something new.  I'd call ahead, because as with all construction... there have been delays.)

I never knew they did dinner, I've only ever been in for lunch. Goddamn their bread is good.

Not the way Kyro makes love, they're not.

Alpha Sierra Foxtrot: I am a girl. I am very interested. I am totally okay with looking and not touching.


I know a bartender at a place called Good Friends, (according to him) it's a great gay bar. I'll be going at least once to hang out with him, maybe you guys could come too!

I did this the first time I went to New Orleans.  There was a snake as thick as my arm sunning itself in some tree branches hanging over the water.  It couldn't have gotten to us, but that took all the curiosity out of me.

Yes, Satsuma is awesome too.  Most down here agree its the best brunch this side of Canal.

And the Bacchanal upstairs is going to be awesome.  I've been up there many times during the construction.

Protip for Bacchanal... no idea if the upstairs area will alleviate this, but I don't recommend going on Sunday during the nice weather months (April is one of them of course).  You may not find a seat.

Friday and Saturday are fine.  I recommend getting there around 6-7 though to be safe.

Its gotten popular.  Not in a bad way, but there's a reality to their outdoor capacity.

Hahaha.. you're going to spend a weekend surrounded by people you'd rather ignore!
 
2013-01-30 02:30:19 PM
if you want to check out something a little different, there's the 12 mile limit.  it's in mid-city.  close to finn mccools.  they make pretty good cocktails and have a good selection of booze, all the while they charge dive bar prices.  plus, there's a guy there from texas that does some pretty good barbecue.

bartenders who visit new orleans all seem to love 12 mile limit like it was something special.  i usually go there for football games, because nobody who goes here likes football, so i get a couch to myself and a huge projection screen to watch and dominion over what game to watch.

X1's Here: Unfreakable: AlwaysRightBoy: Sounds like fun Unfreakable. I have a suggesstion for other activities: A restaurant crawl for the foodies! Surely some Farkers from the area could work up a good list of the local hot spots.

/wish I could go

Actually, there will probably be a bunch of side-trips to various area restaurants, as well as little jazz and blues clubs, karaoke, things like that.

I'm planning on dragging people to Frenchmen Street for music....


That's where I always hang out. Love me some Coop's, Alphonse's (i think that's the name of it), Spotted Cat, Vos, et. al. Awesome shopping also, weird shops.
 
2013-01-30 02:46:25 PM
Also, who's up for Collette's?
 
2013-01-30 02:49:04 PM

ertai_lapis: As another native, I MUST ask: "Why Bourbon Street?" As a service to others, I'll probably lead a side-trip or two to the Marigny, so you can see actual good bars, and not touristy crap hawked on Bourbon. Also, I'm down for a poker tournament.


Yeah man, please do. Bourbon Street sucks. Keep our nice innocent farkers them away from that miserable cesspool of a trap. Marigny, Uptown, Mid City, Oak Street--that's where it's at. Bourbon street is nice if you like paying 5 dollars for a stale 12 oz bud light, or if you like shady people approaching you to sell fake party favors.

One advantage to Bourbon Street, we can stand around and bet the tourists we know where they got their shoes.
 
2013-01-30 03:02:23 PM

Unfreakable: Hey locals: what are the must-see/must-do things when we get there? What restaurants do you recommend? What places?


A lot of this depends on your transportation, but some must-see stuff on your visit should include some of each of the following:

For music, head uptown, by taxi or the St. Charles street car line and head to Oak street to go to the Maple Leaf.  If Rebirth Brass Band is playing, you MUST go.  That said, when I would go, they usually played Tuesday nights.  If nothing else, hang out at the Maple Leaf and tie one on while waiting for your table at Jaques-Imo's Cafe, one of the best restaurants in the city.  The hostesses will come get you, and you may end up getting blotto with Jacques himself.  Another New Orleans music institution is Tipitina's, uptown on Tchoupitoulas Street.

Food:  Cochon in the Warehouse District for some cajun food that is mind-blowing.  They also opened a sandwich shop out back called Butcher, and it is mind-blowing.  Every bit of meat they serve is cured on site.  Want a po'boy?  Make your way to Domelise's po'boy shop uptown on Annunciation Street.  Parkway Tavern reportedly has the best hot roast beef.  Kill a hangover with a big bowl of pho at Pho Tau Bay on the Westbank.  A couple of other uptown gems are the recently opened Restaurant Patois and Boucherie, which specializes in small plates.

The WWII Museum is a must for anyone interested in history.  Also, you can grab a bite to eat at John Besh's The American Sector.  The bar, as well as the Stagedoor Canteen, offer some awesome retro cocktails.  The Museum is parked in the warehouse district and there are lots of art galleries in that neighborhood, as well as a stellar Spanish seafood restaurant called Rio Mar, and an Argentinean-style steak house called La Boca.  You'll need reservations for the latter.

Basically, get out of the Quarter for a bit if you can.  The Quarter is fun, and there's nothing wrong with that, but get out and about uptown if you can.  Hop on the St. Charles Streetcar and take the line to Riverbend and get off and grab some lunch and some beers at Cooter Brown's.  For my money, they have some of the best raw oysters in the city when the oyster bar is running.  Take a trip up Magazine street and back.  Go bowling at Rock 'n Bowl, which is basically a live music venue that adds booze, food, and a fully functioning bowling alley.

Well, Bourbon is a good place to start everything.  Firstly, everyone should see that mess at least once in their life.

As for renting out a space... it doesn't matter.  You're shielded from the mess and its just us farkers.

Not trying to be "that annoying local guy". For the Pub Crawl... just MHO here, I'd start on Bourbon for a short while, and at least take it down to Frenchmen via lower Decatur.  You'll have a much better time.

90% of Bourbon Street bars not in the gay secton are really all the same.  On Frenchmen, and into the Marigny you're going to find real good music, better bar food, and more unique atmosphere.

All in all, its no big deal... all of this is within walking distance.
