Here, thanks to Ian Cruise, are some suggestions of things to do in New Orleans, along with enjoying the conference sessions and receptions:
- Upscale, classic New Orleans: Commander’s Palace, Galatoire’s, Arnaud’s, Antoine’s
- Upscale, but more modern: August, Cochon, Herbsaint, La Petite Grocery, Coquette, Peche
- Cheaper, but great: Central Grocery (for Muffulettas), Parkway Bakery and Tavern (for Po Boys), Company Burger (for burgers), Cafe du Monde (for beignets)
- Also worth checking out: Sucre, which is a great bakery where you can get all kinds of confections, but probably most notably some great macarons.
- The Carousel Bar, The Sazerac Bar, and
- for anyone interested in something kind of kitschy but still fun: Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, which is reputed to be the oldest bar in the US.
- Just walk up Frenchmen St. at night: The best known places along there are probably The Spotted Cat Music Club and Three Muses.
- Other places not on Frenchmen that are solid: Tipitina’s and the House of Blues.
