Who's been to New Orleans?

48 posts in this topic

In June I'm going to New Orleans for a bachelor party. It'll be my first trip down there. Any advice on places to go, places to eat, live music, things to try, things to avoid would be greatly appreciated.

We are looking to stay either on Bourbon St or closer to Harrah's. I know June is a bad time to go, as it'll be hot as poo, but this was the only time the whole group could make it.

It's fun, but I don't really have any recommendations, just walk up and down Bourbon and drink your face off.

I gambled and drank and walked....a lot of each.

The food is not as good as what folks would lead you to believe, at least not in the busy areas.

It smells foul.

It stinks. It's dirty. Saint fans are idiots.

Ha there will be a big contingent of Panther fans in our group. I'm sure plenty of poo talking will ensue.

New Orleans is a fugging pit. Outside of eating at Emeril's it was a total bust for me.

It's a pockmark of sin, but not in a good way, because where other places have an underbelly or glamorous sin if you know the right places to go, New Orleans just dangles its saggy ,infected sin out for the world to see. I imagine it's like Vegas if the entire population of Vegas had scabies. Once the sun goes down the entire city turns into that seedy strip club from the wrong side of the tracks; the one that has a free buffet and they have a security guard instead of a door man.

Hit the nail on the head

It's the dirtiest city I've ever been to, I don't care to go back ever again.

We had a blast. Were just there for a wedding in January.

I haven't done the whole Vegas thing but my bf said he liked it way better despite the fact it smells like ass. It's a more laid back Vegas is what he said.

We were there during the first start of Mardi Gras so we got to see a parade. Go down to the river and look at all the cool SuperBowl football sculptures.

Harrahs was fun my girlfriend won $300 playing Roulette

If you wanna be drunk after 1 drink get a Hurricane. If not get a Grenade. Personally I thought th grenades tasted better.

We stayed on Conti street which is a block off Bourbon so we were about a 3 minute walk from it. It's better to stay off if you want to go to sleep before 5am.

Also some of the strip clubs are just ugh. The one we went into I was highly disappointed in the quality of wimmenz.

I got a pretty awesome mask that I bright home with me and lots of beads of course. The jazz band that walks through Harrahs is pretty freakin awesome.

There is a dueling pianos bar that is prtty cool. He only played my song and no one else's so I had to sweet talk them into putting this on the board but I guess there were a bunch of Pats fans in there ....we were there the weekend of the conference championships so Ravens/SF/ATL etc fans were all over the place

Also, cafe du monde for seem beignets is definite it's so fuging good and so is their coffee.

Down the street from that is the French Market .....just like the market in Charleston very open with artwork and local artists with handmade crafts ....there's way better prices for touristy stuff in the market

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
