Yup. Sounds like Nawlins!

In Maine I'll do the Lobster Eggs Benedict and Clam Hash...

How many of those crawdads does it take to make a decent sized portion?

Lobster eggs Benedict sounds awesome. I need to visit Maine anyways some day. For an omelette it takes probably 3-4 decent sized ones.

I was there for a weekend business trip back in 96-98 timeframe. Is there still an Irish bar off Burboun Street? It was a very fun evening spent there, to the best of my recollection.

Pat O'Brien's? Have a Hurricane and we'll box the glass for you on the way out? St. Peter St. if I remember right...

Red, I'd be lying if I said I remembered the name. I do know there were a couple guys laying out some amazing music. The atmosphere in the place had me feeling like I was in a pub from the home 'o me ancestors!

I'm qualified to answer the OP. I live and work in NOLA.

Must do bars - Pat O'Briens on St. Peter St in the French Quarter, Tipatina's on Napoleon Ave. Uptown, Razzo's on Bourbon St. in the FQ., Parasol's on Constance St. in the Irish Channel, Maple Leaf on Oak St. Uptown, Manning's on Fulton St. near the Riverwalk, Jimmy Buffets on Decatur St. has a balcony you can eat and drink on ... I could go on and on here. Def get yourself a Hurricane and a Hand Grenade while in the FQ.

Must do restaurants - Cafe du Monde in the FQ for Beignets and coffee for breakfast (show up early!), Commander's Palace on Washington Ave. in the Garden District (Upscale), Acme Oyster House on Iberville St. in the FQ (Cajun/Creole Show Up Early!), Mother's on Poydras St. Downtown (comfort food), Frankie and Johnny's on Arabella and Tchoupitoulas Sts (neighborhood bar/grill excellent poboys), Vincent's on St. Charles Ave. Uptown (excellent Italian), Deanie's Seafood in Bucktown on Lake Ave near Lake Ponchatrain, Camellia Grill on S. Carrollton Ave. Uptown (breakfast), Ye Olde College Inn on S. Carrolton Ave. (pricey but excellent), Port of Call on Esplanade in FQ (some say best burgers in NOLA), Drago's Seafood on N. Arnoult in Metairie, Lucky Dog Hot Dog carts throughout the FQ ... could go on and on. NOLA really doesn't have any bad local restaurants. Crawfish are out of season in Oct., but you might find some boiled in a restaurant. Get 5lbs of spicy crawfish!

Must do music - Tipatina's on Napoleon Ave. Uptown (cover charge, variety of local bands), House of Blues on Decatur St. in the FQ (ticket, variety of local/national bands), Preservation Hall on St. Peter near Bourbon St. in the FQ (jazz, tickets to get inside but can stand outside and listen), Gretna Fest on the Westbank Oct. 2,3&4 featuring Hank Williams Jr., Kid Rock, and Brett Michaels along with dozens of other bands (tickets, very crowded), and of course street musicians on every corner in the FQ hustling tips.

Must do things - 1st is you must go to the WWII Museum downtown (best museum in America, spend at least half a day there DO NOT MISS THIS!), Go to a Saints game in the Superdome if you've never been, try to get tickets to an LSU football game in Baton Rouge a short hour drive away, ride the street car Uptown and back to Downtown, gamble at Harrah's Casino downtown, stroll around Jackson Square to see the artists and shops, take a walk on the Moon Walk along the Mississippi River in front of Jackson Square, relax on a River Boat ride, walk into a seedy strip club on Bourbon St. (hard to tell if some are women or men), shop at the French Market in the FQ (a huge open flea market), go to the Aquarium, go to Audobon Zoo, take a ghostly cemetery tour, take a swamp tour in Lafitte, visit Lafitte National Park, go on a charter boat fishing trip (excellent fishing), bring home a piece of art of NOLA from NOLA, lots and lots of festivals in October throughout the city and state.

Things you must not do - go off on the outskirts of the FQ along empty streets at night (lots of criminals), give to the homeless (they are on every corner throughout the city. You will go broke if you give to everyone who ask you for a quarter), flash your money around, go to cemeteries alone, hire a stripper (she will likely be a he), argue with a drunk, unless it's your wife, argue with the police (they don't play and you will be lost in the jail system for weeks before you get out), go to New Orleans East (it's the Wild West in the East), park illegally (they love to tow. Best to cough up the money & pay to park. You won't find a free convenient place to park in the FQ anyway. You should drive aggressively tho to fit in with the locals).

Best advice: the locals are very friendly. Chat them up. They will talk back. Find me when you get here, and I'll show you around.

Cajunhiker, Sounds like it hasn't changed a bit in 40 years...

Except maybe the entertainer names...
