Need restaurant suggestions, and vote for New Orleans!

Hi everyone,

I need restaurant suggestions for people attending conferences in New Orleans in the summer. By the way, you can help New Orleans by voting for it to be the site of the 2009 Thrillerfest at www.thrillerwriters.org/index.php…

(For some strange hacker reason that I don't get maybe, everytime New Orleans gets ahead in the voting someone adds about 30 votes to San Francisco. {Gag me.} Somehow they must be cheating by voting more than once a day. So if you can or so desire, please go vote for New Orleans!)

And thanks in advance for summer food recommendations!

Best,

LoveNOLA

If you can tell us a bit more about the event we can make better recommendations. How many in attendance? What level of formality would you like? General idea of budget?

Thanks for boosting New Orleans......

Cafe Du Monde (not a full menu ~ just the most delicious beignets!)

Take care ~

I've never heard of tthrillerfest, but I voted for New Orleans - anything to help the economy. When I voted, New Orleans was ahead of San Francisco by just 13 votes.

Hi all ~

Unfortunately, the voting for ThrillerFest 2009 has been suspended by the Thriller Writers Association. Voter fraud! :( I did a post explaining the exact problem on my blog ~
