Well I jumped the gun and booked my New Orleans tickets last week thinking the Saints would have knocked out the 49ers. So now I'll be representing the Big Blue on Bourbon Street this Sunday! Is anyone else on these boards going to be in New Orleans or is from there?

Looks like the Manning family opened a restaurant/ sports bar. Its debut was today

Cool, at least you can spend some time with the Mannings. I'm sure they will appreciate your loyalty to the team, even if you got a little anxious too soon.

That was crazy considering that game was Saturday and we didn't even play yet! How about you give me some of that extra money you have!

haha well my wife is a life long Saints fan and we figured if one of our teams made it to the NFC Championship game either we'll be watching the Giants take on the Saints in the Superdome or watch the Saints take on the Packers with fans on Bourbon St. I've never been to New Orleans so at the least I'd have a nice little vacation out of it. I mean its not like I jumped the gun and booked a place like Cleveland lol

You're like Mike Smith......I respect the confidence to go for it but your execution and play design had its faults.</P>


Can't go wrong in NO though.......you'll have a great time and even better time if it's coupled with a W.</P>

Well, if you're gonna be stuck somewhere watching the game, Burbon Street is not a bad spot. Been to NO twice, and loved it both times. Even though you'll be going during the partying offseason there, it's still a greta place to visit. </P>


Thinking of going back there for J*** Fest in May. </P>

New Orleans is my favorite city that I have ever been to...that's why I find myself rooting for the Saints when the Giants are eliminated from contention. Bourbon Street is something else.

The French Quarter is probably the coolest part of any city in the United States.

I really considered moving down there except it's too damn hot in the summer for my liking.

I would say you made an awesome mistake by booking that trip! [:D]

I would recommend that any post midnight partying be confined to your room.

French Quarter past midnight is shady? I'm staying on Canal across the street from the Harrahs Casino.

I live about 20-30 minutes (depending on traffic) from the Quarter. Pay attention!!! Don't wander too far from lights and tourists. Watch for pickpockets! I don't want to sound too negative - you can have a ball - but to repeat - Pay Attention!!

I have been twice. Both, some time ago. The first time I went, I stayed at a hotel outside the quarter at a place that offered a shuttle in. As we drove past the street that represented the dividing line between being in and out of "the quarter", the driver came right out and said "if you go passed this street you will be killed and they will not come look for you". Bottom line message (again, at that time) was, you can do whatever, whenever while in the quarter,justbe very careful when adventuringoutside of it.</P>

I would just pay attention to the advice given, and one more thing...if anybody tries to bet you that they can tell you where you got your shoes...just tell them they are on your feet and keep walking.

Yes...beignets and coffee with chickory and milk...I think they call it cafe' au leit...very nice. Cafe' du Monde in the french market and Morning Call in Fat City. Great for late night/early morning munchies.
