From Cooter Brown's a couple of nights ago... If you're going to Cooter's, note that about half of the streetcar line Uptown is out of service, the track is dug up for repairs.  Coming from downtown, you'd still take the streetcar toward uptown...& then they'll transfer you to a city bus that will take you the rest of the way along the same stops. (No additional charge for the bus ride, just replaces the streetcar for much of the route right now.)

I highly recommend y'all download that to your phone ^^^^^^^^^
It's basically a way for everyone to keep in touch...includes lists of events, addresses of venues, and a comment page that is updated in real time...can share comments, pics, etc.

X1's Here: Why would anyone bring food to NOLA?
*puzzled*


Because cooking your own food you can control that no crap goes into it and it's a lot cheaper and it tastes better.  :)

This is a great concept!

Dammit. Flights were $280 around noon today and now I can't find one for cheaper than $580
Well, what was once a possibility is no more

Unfreakable: Not everything has to take place on Bourbon Street, but for a lot of people who have never been there, it wouldn't make sense to go to New Orleans and then not even go there once. New Orleans is a hell of a lot more than just Bourbon Street, and I expect that the locals will be able to show noobs like me what's cool.


I'm local, and if you say "crawdad" down here, you may get stabbed.

I mean, you may get stabbed anyway, but "crawdad" will get you there sooner.

The Joint is a great BBQ place in the Bywater, and Mrs. Angus and I really like Maurepas Foods in the Marigny. I'm not sure that I'd recommend that an out-of-towner visit those two places after dark.

There are also great restaurants in the Warehouse district (Root, Rio Mar) and the CBD (Luke, Domenica, Mother's).

Eat and drink yourselves silly!

Lt. Col. Angus: I'm local, and if you say "crawdad" down here, you may get stabbed.


To follow up, the preferred nomenclature is "crawfish." "Mudbugs" and "crayfish" are equally unacceptable.
 
2013-04-02 09:48:27 PM  
Crawfish it is. I don't know where I got the other term, it doesn't come up in my normal conversation.
 
2013-04-02 09:56:55 PM  
I'd love to go, with it being so close by and all, but I have a date in the marsh in one of the most remote areas of the Louisiana coast this weekend.  Anyone who wants to follow along, we will be camping out and fishing in the flyway along East Little Constance Bayou near East Constance Lake, which is only accessible from the Gulf.  Come to think about it, it won't be much different than any party in New Orleans.  The similarity is that if you run into trouble, you pretty much have to solve it yourself, so keep awake and aware.  No one will rescue you.

Have fun y'all.
 
2013-04-02 10:25:52 PM  
Best Korea might try to cancel the fun. I'd be careful about non-refundable fares.

Is there anyone besides me that wants to make the D Day museum on Saturday?

I may regret this but...fark it...I have some empty rooms in my apt. that could house some of you for the weekend. My roommate will probably be weirded out but whatever. I work from 2 p.m. to about midnight so you'd have to be out of the house for that time.

Pretty sure there's an eip

There are several on the FB party page that have expressed interest.
Perhaps you can post that in the the new app, and see what people say?

You absolutely should. It's a great museum.

Skip the "4-D movie", it's pretty lame. The restaurant in the museum (American Canteen?) is a John Besh restaurant, and is really good.
 
2013-04-03 08:19:40 AM  
Besh's restaurants in the museum are The American Sector  http://www.nationalww2museum.org/american-sector/

And also The Soda Shop  http://www.nationalww2museum.org/american-sector/the-soda-shop.html
 
2013-04-03 08:21:51 AM  
Speaking of Besh, if anyone has the cash, I highly recommend Restaurant August.
All of his restaurants, really, but I especially love August.

Another must-do at the Museum....eavesdrop.

There are dozens of old people there with their families, and they will often stop and point stuff out, and say "I was there" or "That's me in that picture" or "Oh, I remember that"....they mean to be talking to their families, but the stories they tell are fascinating to listen to.
Also, make sure you shake their hand and thank them for their service. Even there, in the museum, they don't expect to hear it and are very appreciative.

Oh God, THIS. Also, go to Bayona for lunch on a weekday and order the duck sandwich. Don't even look at the rest of the menu. Just do it.

I'm trying to decide where to go to lunch on Friday (Thurs is Serendipity). I've been to Bayona for dinner, never for lunch. I just want Oysters, so I'll probably just go to Felix's or somewhere like that.

I do not care for duck. I keep trying it, hoping I'll like it, but I just don't. I've come to accept that fact and the disbelief from others that follows that pronouncement.

FWIW, I didn't like duck until I had a bite of that sandwich when my wife ordered it. Now we both order it every time we go for lunch. It's also got cashew butter and pepper jelly (both things I also never would've dreamed I would like), so the duck flavor is somewhat masked.
 
2013-04-03 10:45:21 AM  
Interesting. Maybe someday I'll try it.

BTW...if anyone is around tonight, I'm coming into town late, but I might be awake enough to stop in to my local living room, Lucky's on St. Charles, for a nightcap. Anyone around after 9/9.30, join me there!

(keeping an eye on the weather, too...hoping nothing gets delayed)

Couldn't agree more. One of the actual highlights of my life was going to the WWII museum with my (now 95ish year old) grandfather a few years back.

He's still bright eyed and bushy tailed, but his eyes lit up in that place, and he had a story for everything we saw.

I can't recall if he has been since they opened the Pacific Theater wing.

if you want raw oysters for lunch in the cbd, luke's (a besh restaurant) has a happy hour of $0.50 gulf oysters and half price drinks from 3-6 every day.  they have great oysters.  they also serve all the baked oysters and oysters from different parts of the world, but that's not promoted on happy hour.

I want lunch, not HH...if I want HH Oysters, I usually go to The Blind Pelican on St. Charles for .25 Oysters...but if I'm in the CBD, Luke is a good choice (of COURSE it is... <3 Besh!).

I will probably just play it by ear and see who's around to do what and what they want to try. I'm more than happy to take visitors to Cooter Brown's, Mother's, etc...or even hop a cab for a Dooky Chase lunch. mmmm.....Dooky Chase.....

La Provence is down the street from my new place. His business partner's daughter is in my daughter's class. Needless to say, I've gotten even fatter due to these two things.

i've made several dozen raw oysters a lunch...  whoops.  that might not be for everyone.

good offerings, but when i have lunch somewhere,  it's usually in the cbd, cause that's where i work and i don't have a car, so my lunch references are a little cbd centric.

here are just some offerings for any farkers:

for brunch. I would recommend coulis (bring your own vodka, they make a great bloody mary, fresh juices and all. but they don't have a liquor license -- convenience store across the street sells booze) (uptown - easy access by street car).  you could also try satsuma or surrey's... (bywater, or lower garden district or uptown).  or, if you're a fancy person, commander's palace (garden district) or galatoire's (quarter).  lately, for brunch, my wife and i either go coulis or satsuma, despite the fact i live only about 100 ft from surrey's (they've lost my attention.  still good, but not as good as i remember -- i only sneak in there to get fresh juices)

or, if you make it towards the cooter brown's area (riverbend? butt fark uptown?  carrolton? whatever you call it), try the grits at Fuel.  quite possibly the best grits on earth.  oh yeah, and their other food is great too (just a breakfast/brunch place, closed for dinner).  or camelia's (but, there's also a camelia's in the quarter -- i usually go for the chef's special omelette, but then i get made fun of, because i take the chili on the side.  fortunately, i eat the way i want and take criticism on deaf ears)

for anyone staying through till monday, don't miss out on some red beans and rice and hot or smoked sausage at commerce restaurant (unless, of course, you want to eat fancy, cause this ain't fancy.  you'll feel like you stepped in a time machine.  sitting in this restaurant for an hour and you will hear every municipal secret in new orleans, i learned all about the superbowl power outage by listening to the entergy people who frequent the place).  probably the best you can eat for $6.  they serve other stuff like po-boys and whatever.  i'd go here over mothers

or, if you make it to a weekday, try the crawfish bisque at bon ton cafe (first cajun restaurant opened in new orleans, note, it's closed on weekends).  it's obscene and you won't find a soup like this any where else on the planet because it's extremely labor intensive to make.  it might even make you wet your pants its so good.  turtle soup's good too.  but, you their crawfish bisque is really singular.  in my humble opinion.  (also, sitting in this restaurant for an hour and you will hear every legal matter going on in new orleans, it always has a bunch of judges and lawyers)

but, in closing, try to eat at bayona.  it's one of my favorites.  i had a friend who was the soux chef there, and that doesn't really mean anything, other than, it's an awesome restaurant.  susan spicer (the head chef lady) really knows food

i would also say serendipity, but that's part of the plan. chef chris will take you somewhere that all other young chef's only wish they could.  he's like the guy that does all the weird stuff and it works, unlike the million failures of all the other over-ambitious, young chefs.  not that chris is young, but his food is.

My Dad was a USGC combat veteran...sure wish he was still around so he could join us. Last time I went to New Orleans (98), he told me to have a martini for him at the revolving bar at the Monteleon. I think that I will have one this weekend as well in his memory.
 
2013-04-03 06:12:51 PM  
Anyone feel like starting this off tonight (Wednesday)? I'm already in the neighborhood with nothing to do. I could be in NOLA in under 2 hours (depending on traffic).
 
2013-04-03 06:36:27 PM  

Skyday: I'm a professional photographer and I'll be documenting the whole party :)


I'm a professional and a photographer (and sometimes those two even overlap), and based on my experience it is impossible to document the whole party as just one person. Put business aside and enjoy yourself instead.

Going in the other direction, I've got a free 8x8 photo book from Shutterfly and the state of Florida (20 pages) (coupon available at visitor centers entering the state of Floriduh). I was thinking about creating a yearbook of sorts for this year's convention.

Here's a review of some pics from last year.

For eye-bleach, I recommend gazing upon the photos our wonderful TI waitstaff in their red costumes. Some would say they are the perfect woman: they dress well, bring food and libations upon request, and all they ask for is money.

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your attitude), New Orleans seems to have much crappier weather in April than Las Vegas. Three and a half inches of rain on Tuesday and they're still complaining about a drought.

The spicy red pepper jelly and the toasty-ness of the cashew butter are probably what makes the duck taste yummy.

Duck is fatty so you need another flavor to "cut" it with so it ain't all fatty greasiness.

the weather should be nice for the weekend, only a small chance of rain.  today looks beautiful

and i don't think southeast louisiana is often in the business of complaining about a drought.
