Just so everyone is aware, there are two big events happening over that weekend: American Chemical Society conference and NCAA Women's Final Four. So, don't be surprised if it is a little more "touristy" than normal. And, be wary of long lines for restaurants in the CBD and French Quarter.

It is definitely worth the wait to stand in line at Mother's on Poydras for breakfast.
Or lunch.
Well shiat dinner too

downstairs: The Country Club is what its called.  Its an awesome place.  And they do rent it out.  I know they have for certain festivals, at least.

2013-03-01 01:17:11 PM  
I'm out :-(

I'm having surgery and there's no way I'll be healed enough by then.

Have fun and do something ill-advised for me.  I know you guys are up the task!

Word of warning about The Country Club (and things may have changed, I haven't been in 2+ years).  The wife and I ate there 5 times, through multiple chefs.  The food was either horrible or downright dangerous (wife's chicken wasn't cooked through).  And its supposed to be- and priced to be- pretty fine cuisine.

The pool area is georgous.  But after a lot of experience, albiet in the past, I'd prepare to eat somewhere else.  Nice thing is there are places to eat within walking distance of The Country Club.

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


Your post reminded me about an email I sent to a fellow Farker a couple of years ago who was coming to New Orleans & was looking for bar/restaurant advice...still had in in my sent folder, so here it is:

-------------------------------------------------

When you're in the Quarter, there are some great places that are tourist-y, but still great.  Acme Oyster House on Bienville is a favorite.. Mother's Restaurant on Poydras not far outside the quarter, but worth a cab ride.  (Get the 'debris' roast beef po-boy.)   Antoine's on St. Louis is fantastic.  Port of Call on Esplanade (north side of Quarter) has the best burgers in town.  Pat O Brien's is a tourist mecca, but worth at least one trip.  Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop on Bourbon is the oldest bar in America.

Outside the Quarter: If you really want to impress your g/friend (and are ready to spend a lot,) Commander's Palace is a must. (Not sure if they still require a jacket, it's been a while.)
- Lakeview Harbor on Harrison  - great seafood. 
- Lucy's on Tchoupitoulas - Great bar in Warehouse district, mediocre food, great happy hour, great local scene.
-  Drago's on Poydras (in the Riverside Hilton) - A lot of tourists there, b/c it's in the Hilton, but the locals love it.. best oysters in the city.  (They invented grilled/char-broiled oysters.) 
-  Mike's on the avenue (St. Charles Avenue) - Oyster burrito?? Yea. 
-  Lola's on Esplanade is one of our favorites - Spanish cuisine. Intimate, small place. (Long wait for a table, bring a bottle of wine.)
- Cooter Brown's - St. Charles at Carrolton - great neighborhood sports bar/grill (and four blocks from my house.)   On the streetcar line, a good 20 minute+ ride from the Quarter.  40 beers on draft.  (3/1/13 update - The streetcar line in this area is under repair, will need to take a cab or drive. Too far to walk from Quarter.)
- Mid-City Yacht Club, S. St. Patrick St - great bar.  (Not actually a yacht club.. was flooded post-Katrina, hence the name.)
- The Columns Hotel on St. Charles - It's a mansion converted into a hotel. The downstairs bar is fantastic.. if you can get a table on the front porch, the people-watching on St. Charles is amazing.
- Henry's Bar on Magazine -  Great neighborhood bar.  Large drinks.
- Kingpin Bar on Lyons street - great neighborhood bar.
- Wine Institute of New Orleans (W.I.N.O), if you like wine, on Tchoupitoulas Street - $35 for 8 tastings. 
- The Bulldog on Magazine - neighborhood Uptown bar, 50+ beers on tap
 
That's a bunch off the top of my head.  Be especially careful in the Quarter, don't go anywhere alone, and don't drink anything that comes with a small plastic hand grenade on top of the ice. re: the grenade... A couple of bars along Bourbon street make big tropical drinks with Everclear, and put a signature plastic grenade on top...  I've known more than one person that suffered a bad blackout from drinking a couple/three of these in a row. 
------
Hey, on the previous list, I forgot to mention Cafe du Monde.. It's a famous coffee place on the south side of the Quarter by the river.  Has been in operation 24/7 since 1862, except for a few weeks after Katrina.  Serves thick coffee & beignets, a deep-fried pastry that's smothered in powdered sugar.  Favorite of tourists & locals alike.

Also in the quarter:  Central Grocery on Decatur...has been in operation since about 1905. Invented the muffuletta sandwich.  (I think they're only open for lunch, maybe till 2PM.)

By the way, in case you've never been to New Orleans... There's actually not a lot of major crime in the Quarter, b/c of all the cops (a lot of them plainclothes.)  Mostly the occasional pickpocket/purse snatcher.  Most thugs know that if they try something in the tourist areas, they might "accidentally fall down face-first" 5 or 6 times if they're caught & arrested. 

Some main "rules" in the Quarter:

- Don't talk back to the cops, ever.  If you see a cop on a horse, don't touch the horse...& Don't take a picture of it/them up close without asking first.
- Women can show their tits, generally, on Bourbon street.. but not anywhere else...And if a guy shows his dick *anywhere,* he'll go to jail.
- You can take drinks out to the street from a bar, but cops will stop you if you are on the street with a glass bottle. The bar workers  won't warn you about this. 
- If you're driving in, or using a rental, pay very close attention to the parking signs..which can be confusing and conflicting at best.  Usually a better ideal to park in a public or hotel garage rather than park on the street.
- Try not to let anyone in your group go anywhere by themselves.  That's when we usually find people turning up as headlines on Fark

As a former manager at Pat O Brians, only drink a Hurricane if you ask a bartender to make it from scratch in front of you.  Otherwise it comes out of a big giant tank, and sometimes river rats generally take a dip in it.

The Harbor is a great bar, and has been for years.

Traditional dive bars are the Saturn Bar and Snake and Jakes.

My fav bar for years has been the Mayfair Lounge uptown.

I think that's what they ship to the one here at Universal Studios.

I'll do my best to ensure that myself and Mrs. Mooseyfate make it. Sounds like a good time.

/especially since all the Farkers that routinely talk shiat about NOLA won't be anywhere near said good time
//now the real question is: Do I attend dressed as a Pirate, dressed as a fallout ghoul, or as myself?...
 
2013-03-01 02:16:23 PM  

vicejay: Wine Institute of New Orleans (W.I.N.O), if you like wine, on Tchoupitoulas Street - $35 for 8 tastings.


Never been there, but I'll throw out another idea.  Bacchanal in the Bywater (600 Poland) has a *free* wine tasting every Saturday.  3-6.  Everyone gets 4-6 tasting-sized glasses.  And if you're nice they'll let you try a few again.

With a live band, and a full menu all day.  (The food, of course isn't free... but its rather inexpensive for what you get.)

And they have very affordable bottles of wine, craft beer, and a full bar*

*The bar is a craft-cocktail type thing that is a tad expensive right now.  I think they're trying to make that more affordable.

Gather up 3-4 people and your cab ride from the Quarter is gonna be like $4-$5 each after you split it.  If that.

Not at all trying to knock vicejay's suggestion... just saying if you're into wine (even a little bit, they're not pretentious)... its a great, inexpensive way to waste away a Saturday.  And most of the people who come are from the neighborhood, and we're all friendly.  Weird.  But friendly.

Unfreakable: megalynn44: At the top where it says only farkers allowed into the party...... we can bring our spouses, right?

Of course, but the door charge would apply to both.


Considering the Mrs. and I put away $190+ worth of French Quarter Priced Booze when we're out and about, I'd say $100 still sounds like a fantastic deal.

Yea you right.

Also, in my note above, I described the food at Lucy's as "mediocre." To be fair, it's not bad, but it's got a lot of competition.  "Mediocre" in New Orleans  may be considered quite good in other cities.

pute kisses like a man: Bartleby the Scrivener: Take a side trip one afternoon down to the Bayou Barn in Jean Lafitte for a canoe trip in alligator infested waters. Tell em BtS sent you.

They'll say WTF are you talking about? but tell em anyway.

a friend of mine does kayak tours through bayou st john (goes through city park, sometimes ends up with po-boys at liuzza's by the track), so you don't really need to take that much of a side trip.


so who is it that does the tours?
 
2013-03-04 03:53:25 PM  

MerelyFoolish: 1. Sounds like fun. It's within driving distance, so i will attend.

2. How many people normally attend these things?

3. Is there a median age or concentration of ages? Don't want to be the only 40-something guy there.

4. I say we begin now to create a pool that would be a prize to whoever finds and brings Lootie to the party. I pledge $100. Maybe Heineken will sponsor.

5. If I bring my hot, much younger girlfriend who has a habit of drinking too much and wandering off with strangers, will you all promise to leave her alone?


I am 50 so you will not be the oldest :)
 
2013-03-04 04:08:22 PM  

downstairs: 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 am in for that :)

2013-03-07 10:39:06 AM  
Here's my contribution as a dude who lives here. I haven't read the entire thread, and this is, by no means, an exhaustive guide of things to do while you're here.

To get around town
The streetcar is $1.25, cash, each time you ride, unless you get a transfer for $0.25 and use it within an hour or two. It's the best way to get around between Uptown and the French Quarter. Parking in the Quarter is $25/day, so I recommend parking between Poydras and Canal in a surface lot for $5.

Okay, here's a list of things to do, broken down by area of the city, and time of day. It is, by no means, exhaustive, but it's a start.

French Quarter
Morning
: Grab breakfast wherever you like. Seriously. There isn't a whole lot of bad food, as long as you avoid the all-night pizza/gyro places. Bourbon doesn't really start waking up until mid-afternoon, so take this time to see the rest of the quarter. Walk to Jackson Square, have a beignet at Cafe du Monde, and see the art galleries and shops in the area. Visit the French Market, which is a large open air flea market on the other side of Cafe du Monde. You can haggle prices at that market, and it's encouraged. Take a walking tour if you like. Camelia Grille opened a FQ location, and that's a killer breakfast. The Uptown location is a huge tourist and locals destination, but the FQ one isn't nuts yet.

Afternoon: This is a good time to hit the pool at your hotel if it has one, and to recharge for the evening. Take a nap, and relax. You will need your energy, because you won't be leaving the clubs on Bourbon before 3 or 4 am. Seriously. Bourbon never closes, but it slows down a little after 3 am.

Anyhow, as to what to do in the Quarter at that time: shop, primarily, or listen to any of the bands playing in the bars on Bourbon. Eat as you like. I recommend a lunch at Galatoire's, The Alpine, or Bayonna. If you want a muffaletta, GO TO CENTRAL GROCERY ONLY. I can't stress that enough.

Evening: Get your grub on. Bayonna is a fine restaurant, as is Arnaud's. R'Evolution just opened, and it's had rave reviews. Galatoire's, again, is quite good. If you're looking for something less pricey, head to one of the bars on Bourbon that serves food. Their food will be okay, but not holy crap awesome.

Late night: You're going to spend every late night in this area, most likely, unless you venture to Frenchmen Street or Oak Street for live music. Just walk up and down the blocks and find what strikes you. There are literally bars every few feet on Bourbon, so if you don't like one, head to the next one. You can travel with your drinks, so it's no big deal. If you want to live a little, head off Bourbon to Royal (one block over) and check out some of the bars there. Also, take a look for Harry's Corner. It's a cash only locals bar, but they won't like you if you come in and get all brotastic.

Magazine Street (Uptown/Lower Garden/Irish Channel Neighborhoods)
Daytime: This is an area with a ton of shops and restaurants. It's a good place to spend an afternoon kicking back at a bar or at a table, drinking and watching hot women walk by. To get there, you can take the streetcar from the Quarter up St. Charles, then get off at 3rd Street or so and walk 5-6 blocks over to Magazine. Walk up Magazine towards 8th and 9th to find cool bars, restaurants, and a nice cigar shop called the Mayan Import Company (at ~7th and Magazine). Sucre is a sweets shop with liquor-laden gelato shakes that are really good. The Rum House has awesome oddball tacos (like scallops or brisket or pulled pork or jerk chicken) and good booze. Tracy's is the locals bar there, and they have decent food and cheap drinks. That's at 3rd and Magazine. Just down the block from Tracy's on 3rd, toward Constance, is a place called Parasol's that has killer po boys and other food. Magazine Street Po Boy Shop is really good, too, and they're at First and Magazine.

In this area are also some incredible homes, and a couple of cool cemeteries. You can't miss them, and it's worth it to walk/drive around and see these things.

Afternoon/Evening: Best food in this area is Commander's Palace, one of the top 5 restaurants in the country. You must wear slacks and a collared shirt, and the food is divine. If you go, get reservations now, and, for love of God, go at lunch, not dinner. They have a three course lunch for $20-25 that includes $0.25 martinis on weekdays. Do it.  YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS

St. Charles Avenue (Uptown - it's a LONG street)
Morning: For breakfast, you can get on the streetcar and ride it as far as it will take you and go to Camelia Grill for a true tourist breakfast. Great food, just lines.

Daytime: At the downtown end of St. Charles Avenue are a series of decent bars: Avenue Pub, Lucky's, and The Irish House are probably the best of the bunch. In the middle, I'd head to The Columns Hotel, which has an awesome bar and a decent restaurant, and is a really cool old building. Their patio is a nice place to sit and watch hot girls jogging on the tracks of the streetcar. At the far uptown end, Cooter Brown's is AWESOME (this is where the Fark party is). Cooter's has 400+ beers, a full menu of bar food which is tits, and an oyster bar. Cooter's is true NOLA locals living, and it just kicks ass. You have Tulane and Loyola students in there, plus locals from attorneys to construction guys. It's a sports bar and dirty and wonderful. It's pretty big, too.

Evening: For fine dining near downtown, look to Delmonico's. For fine dining in the middle, there isn't much. For fine dining way uptown, there are a slew of restaurants at the far uptown end near Cooter Brown's. Nothing really wild along this street, but all the daytime places are good in the evening, too, if you want a kick back night just smoking cigars. Speaking of smoking cigars, there is a great cigar bar on Tchoupitoulas, way Uptown (take a cab), that has live music every night after 9, and a taco truck that parks outside. They have sofas and a really, really, really laid back vibe. The place is called Dos Jefes, and it's a phenomenal spot. Their humidor isn't too great, but the atmosphere is.

Oak Street (Way, way Uptown)
This street is about 15 blocks long, and is lined with shops and restaurants. More of a locals' shopping and dining area, but out-of-towners still love the street. Take a cab or a car to get there. Go to the corner of Carrollton and Oak and you can just walk in.

Morning: Breakfast at Oak Street Cafe. Their shrimp and grits are mindblowingly good. I'm not kidding - they will change your life. Don't get a crawfish meal there, though. Not that great. Everything else on their menu is pretty good. Well worth the trip with a small group of guys.

Afternoon: Lots of shops. Not too many bars. Not much to do.

Evening: Jaques Imo's is already on your list. Great place. Order stuff that is traditional NOLA food though. They don't always do great on their experimental stuff. I recommend their blackened fish, and their deep fried oysters are really good. Squeal BBQ isn't bad, either, and it's right across the way. GET RESERVATIONS AT JAQUES IMO'S OR  YOU'RE farkED. Note that Jaques Imo's is totally casual, too.

Night: Right next door to Jaques Imo's is a place called the Maple Leaf. This is a fantastic live music venue that has about a $10 cover. Their bands are usually really good, and it's a good place to chill for a couple hours, listen to some music, and drink. Drinks are relatively inexpensive compared tot he rest of the country, but kind of expensive for here (unless you're drinking light beer, which is dirt cheap).

Frenchmen Street (Marigny - other side of the French Quarter - nighttime only)
At the end of the French Market, you run into the old US Mint building. On the other side of that building is the beginning of Frenchmen Street. This is the live music heart of the city. There are 6-10 clubs that will have their doors open after the sun goes down, with live music coming from everywhere. There will likely be a brass band on the street just playing. There will be hippies playing guitar, and old men looking for money. It's a wonderful, wonderful place, and one of my favorite places in the entire country. The Spotted Cat Club will have blues-type music and no cover, and they only take cash. That's my favorite place. It's stark - a bar, some benches, some stools, and a stage. Snug Harbor is a larger venue that usually has a cover, and decent bands.

Just walk up and down the street and drink it in. That street is just pure passion.

 That's my short list of things to do while you're here. Enjoy.

Note:

That post was a modified email that I sent to a Farker who visited last year, so there are some recommendations in it that were tailored to his bachelor party group.
 
2013-03-07 06:03:43 PM  
Don't forget: St. Charles, Carrollton and Claiborne all intersect each other at right angles.  Towards the river and towards the lake are opposite directions, except when they're the same direction.  Uptown is closer to downtown than Mid-City is. And you go east on the CCC to get to the West Bank.

The more you eat the more you fart: Come for the legenday food....stay for the smell of stale piss that permeates everything.


It's an unfortunate fact of life that the best food in the world is normally found in the smelliest cities. New Orleans is no exception.  Likewise Paris.  In Naples, there are these things called fumaroles dotting the hillsides, spewing rotten-egg smelling sulfur dioxide into the air.  Garbage piles up on the streets because the garbagemen are perpetually on strike. Eventually the prostitutes set fire to the mountains of garbage, mostly as a form of advertisement.  It literally looks and smells like hell. However, if you walk into almost any restaurant in the Santa Lucia district, Port Alba, on the Via Duomo, the Piazza Garibaldi...anywhere, really...you are suddenly in heaven.

/restaurants have this thing called air conditioning, you know
 
2013-03-07 07:17:39 PM  
Protip: You can buy an all-day pass for the streetcar, unlimited use, for 5 bucks. 3-day pass is $12, and 5-day pass is $20. Exact change...however, the prices change (sometimes an all-day pass is just $3!). Just tell the conductor you want an all-day pass and he'll tell you how much it is.

Let's be honest here. The only reason there is a smell like that is because of tourists on Bourbon. There is about a six block stretch of one street that stinks here. Here's my recreation of the typical tourist:

Daytime: Oh, wow! This is a beautiful city! Too bad it smells like vomit and piss! They should clean this place up!
Nighttime: *hand grenade* *hurricane* *HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORK!* *whiz*

bigpete53: There is about a six block stretch

So, who wants to get together for dinner Friday or lunch Saturday for some fine dining? I'd say dinner Saturday would be an option too, but with the open bar, I'd rather have something more greasy and alcohol-absorbing in my tummy ahead of that. :D

Anyway, I don't like going out to dinner alone, so I need a partner in crime for this adventure.

That's true.  I'm attending but I don't do the FB thing.  I'm definitly down for some fine dining if anyone else is up for it.

You're talking about the weekend of the event, right?  I never make plans that far ahead, but remind me later.

I want to go.  I NEED A ROOMMATE.  If anyone has room to spare and wants to split cost, PLEASE MESSAGE ME.  I have very few needs.  6 hours of sleep in a corner, bathroom for about 30 minutes.  I'm easy to get along with.
