3 girlfriends and I are flying to NOLA early tomorrow morning to celebrate our friends birthday! None of us have EVER been there before. Staying at the Royal Sonesta and we can't wait. Anything good happening this weekend we shouldn't miss? We fly back to California Monday afternoon.
Here is our list of what we want to do (please give me your opinions on these selections):
Dinner at GW Finn
Lunch at Commander's Palace on Monday with 25 cent martinis
Beignets at Cafe Du Monde
Hurricanes at Pat O'Briens
Walking Tour of the French Quarter - not a formal one. Just the one from Frommer's page
Dinner on the Natchez Steamboat (my friend really wants to do this just for the fun of it)
Order take out (deivery) from Verti Marte
Sazerac drink at French 75
Vieux Carre drink at Carousel Bar
Any drink at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop
Royal Street during the day (shops/musicians)
What else should we do?? What not to miss? What/where should we go at night? Most fun places to hang out?
Thank you for any quick replies! Have to print my list of things to do tonight!
