That's why I'm on PT instead of at school this morning!
My plane leaves for New Orleans at 11 and I'll be spending the weekend there. Anything I need to do or see (besides French Quarter, Bourbon St) on a limited time budget?

Down in the French Quarter, you should eat at Mothers!

New Orleans is expecting 15 feet of water due to the floods. Be careful and perhaps bring waders.

Very slight chance that is going to happen. It's more west of New Orleans.

You are coming for a great weekend weather-wise! After today, it's going to be low humidity and in the low 80's. Last week was Jazz Fest, so you missed that huge festival by a week.

Make sure you go to Cafe Du Monde for beignets and eat at Maspero's. Go to Pat O'Brian's and have a hurricane and sit in the piano bar.

Just walking around the French Quarter and looking at the art galleries on Royal Street is great fun, and doesn't cost anything! Make sure you also go to the French Market and shop...most of the stuff in there is cheap!

Have a great time!

My husband and I went last October for the first time and it was wonderful! We totally fell in love with the city. We ate all weekend. Definitely have some voodoo juice - not too many For breakfast we loved Cafe Fleur-de-Lis and, of course, you have to go to Cafe Du Monde for beignets and coffee.

Enjoy!!!

Had my beignet and cafe au lait! Also had a great ice cream daquiri and listend to jazz music outside at the Gazebo Grill. Heading to Harrahs tonight and have swamp tour and then dinner/riverboat cruise tomorrow. Weather has been great. Heard about the flooding but it's upriver. They're actually talking about opening the levees to flood upriver so that it doesn't hit NO.

If you see this while you are there, be sure to take the street car down St. Charles Ave. The weather is so gorgeous today and you'll love seeing all the grand houses on the Ave.
