    Re: Super Bowl Road Trip -- Post Your Travel Plans, Suggestions Etc Here!



    Congrats to everyone who has scored tickets to the game. I hope your presence will bring home a a ravens Superbowl victory. NOLA is a dangerous place...so be prepared. Went to bourbon st with $100 and woke up the next morning with no money, 10 hurricane glasses, and a piece of garlic bread in the bed. The last thing I remember was going to the slushy hurricane stand. The rest of the story is what they based the movie the Hangover on.

    Last night, I scored a pair of $230 r/t tickets to Panama City Beach - 4 hours to NOLA, but only one hour from Mobile's Mardi Gras and 2 to 3 hours from Mississippi Gulf Coast casinos. Rental car at $30/day. There may still be time to catch a good fare.

    Hoping I'd win this http://www.pokerlistings.com/competitions. I'm stoked to go but the tix cost a fortune.

    I'm doing exactly that. LA to Houston. Drive to Nola. Can't wait!

    If anyone is in the South East (or Maryland) and can get to Atlanta, you're more than welcome to roll with our bus trip which is VERY affordable. We're covering lodging from F-M and transpo, no tix. Details here: http://bit.ly/WRKpiB.

    Question: while I don't doubt your knowledge of the streetcar system, I was surprised to see the streetcar line extended so far north up Canal. The last time I took that streetcar line, it went up Canal just a few blocks above !-10. How far is the parking from the streetcar stop?

    I am seriously contemplating coming down to NOLA for the pre-game festivities on Saturday & Sunday, but watching the game back on a huge HDTV in Lafitte (I am still recovering from surgery which would make it unwise to attend the game at the Dome). I have already bought Southwest airline tickets into Panama City Beach, and have a bunch of tailgate buddies staying at Biloxi, and free lodging at Lafitte/Barataria. SWA tickets are transferable for no charge for a year, so there's no risk should my physician veto this latest immature scheme of mine!
    Lets try and meet up. I will probably watch on TV at DBA, on Frenchmen.

    Re: New Orleans Trip Information Thread

    some additional informaton:



    1. Parking is typically limited in New Orleans and I expect that it will
    be extremely limited Super Bowl weekend. I'm not sure what day you guys
    will be getting there, but on Friday and Saturday you might be safe
    parking in the Warehouse District (it's about a 15-20 minute walk from the
    French Quarter, David and I use to walk to the FQ from the Warehouse
    District all the time, so don't worry, it's totally do-able, it's one of
    the safest places in New Orleans, as well). We lived on the corner of
    Julia Street and Baronne Street and there was always parking available on
    the street, but if you want to get a bit closer to the FQ and/or the
    Mississippi River you may be able to find something nearer (check South
    Peters Street, Gravier Street, and Common Street- just remember the closer
    you get to the FQ, the less parking availability unless you pay for a
    parking garage, which can be pricey). Another option for you guys would be
    to park Uptown and take the streetcar to the FQ/downtown. It might be good
    if you and I pull up a map on google before you leave so I can give you
    more information on areas to park and distances.

    I am sending you a couple of links. The first one provides very general
    information about New Orleans (where to go, where to eat, etc.), the
    second one is a link to coupons in case you are interested in going to any
    of those places (tours, restaurants, etc.). The following are the
    restaurants I recommend:

    French Quarter:

    NOLA (an Emeril Lagasse restuarant- Cajun/Creole/American fusion, kind of
    pricey, but totally worth the experience!!)
    K-Pauls (Creole/Cajun; not upper-end, it's a laid back atmosphere,
    reasonable prices, great cuisine!)
    El Gato Negro (Mexican, reasonable prices, very good food and mojitos!!)
    Oceana (Seafood/American; never been here, but we have heard great things
    about it, I think the prices are reasonable, not sure)

    Warehouse District: (near downtown/Super Dome)

    Couchon (Creole/BBQ, pricey, but good!)
    Butcher (owned by the guys who own Couchon, you get Couchon flavor, but
    you don't have to pay Couchon prices, great sandwiches!)
    Rio Mar (South American cuisine, kind of pricey, but worth it as well!)
    Sun Ray Grill (American/Japanese, very good, they have everything--from
    burgers to sushi!)
    American Sector (American; in the WWII Museum, one of our favorite places
    to eat! The Chef is well-known Chef Bech, reasonable prices)

    There are some other places around the city I can tell you about, but they
    are driving distance from the FQ. Also, I recommend looking up the places
    you are interested in on the internet, most, if not all have menus on
    line.

    These are the links I told you about:

    This is not great advice. That area will be gridlock Friday on. Avoid driving downtown.
