Default Lions vs Saints

Leaving in a couple of hours for NOLA to see the game. If the football sucks, at least the alcohol will be cheap and the food good....

Most alcohol in nola is not really cheap.
Most of the drinks i had were 10 to 15 dollars each.
They are pretty big drinks though.
Either way, its one of the ultimate drinking towns!
Enjoy! Your liver will thank you later!
Be sure to have a hurricane at pat o'brians.
Get a handgrenade on bourbon st too.

Do not step in the wet on the sidewalk or street.

It is one of three things, and none of them are water.

Thanks to everyone! Made it back alive and not to badly hung over..... Gotta love anywhere that lets you walk around with open intoxicants....

And The Lions played one of the best games they have played all year! Broke Brees' 60 game passing touchdown streak!

No. Heard about it this morning before we left. Terrible. 10 month old baby.

We didn't see any violence, other than the one drunk/upset Saints fan that wanted to 'take it to the parking lot'. There were a lot of Lions fans down there. For the most part, it was a very hospitable home crowd.

I was also pleasantly surprised that The French Quarter didn't smell like an open sewer, like it did 15 years ago when I was last down there. We stayed at the Hotel St. Marie, which is on Toulouse St between Dauphine St. and Bourbon St.

We walked to the Superdome. It was a bit more than a mile. Not a bad walk at all. Unfortunately, it was raining on the way back to the hotel. Then it really started coming down. As in flood the streets.

I'll go back. There are still a number of things I'd like to do/see in NOLA. Hard to do that when you're with a group of 8 people.

When we were down there, my friend insisted on leaving the French Quarter by midnight.

He say things get rough after midnight, but a shooting is definitely a rarity. It's usually pickpockets and thugs.

It was pretty sedate. But for the most part I was back in the hotel by Midnight. I really wanted to go into the Acme Oyster House on Saturday, but the line was almost a block long. And that was at 11:30 AM. Ended up at Saints and Sinners for my dozen on the half.

Had an outstanding dinner at K Paul's Louisiana Kitchen Friday night. Second time I've been there, and they didn't disappoint. Pricey, but very good.

Of course, had to get coffee and Beignets at Cafe Du Monde early Saturday. Still have powdered sugar on my hoodie. They must get their powdered sugar by the barge load. It's everywhere, and on everything....

Man,I was down there with the USMC military Police. I remember all those places. Pat O'brians and the Huricanes. I have to laugh, I think if you pay extra for the drink you get to keep the glass. I saw on the way in that there were bags of them, in boxes and bagged, in the trash can. After drinking 4 of them and bagging up my four glasses, I made it to the door where the bag slipped from my hand and fell to the floor. The glasses are very tall, in the bag they were about 3" from the floor. All 4 broke there stems in the box. My bag ended up in the trash can like the other ones.
