Never been to NOLA during Mardi Gras, but I did have dinner at Galatoire's one Halloween evening.  The French Quarter was quite a circus (in an entertaining way).

Looking for a place to piss!

Public urination is the only thing they will lock you up about. Far worse gets a pass. Honestly, you can do just about anything except take a leak. That, and you cannot be totally immobile. Drunk as a skunk, with no clothing on, a okay. Immobile, you are in trouble.

It really is on another level.

On the Friday night(I believe), me and my buddy hit Bourbon Street. It felt like Times Sq during New Years Eve. We pointed to a bar that we wanted to try to make it to. He and I must have turned our heads in different directions..and that was the last we saw of each there that night. We were separated and the next time I saw him was when i stumbled back to our room and he was lying on his bed, fully dressed(leather jacket and all) passed out with a bottle of something(we kept a stash in our room) under him.

We both had made it to the bar that we wanted to get to, but it was multi level and we never bumped into each other.

I've been to NOLA twice. First for Mardi Gras and then on a regular weekend. So much better the second time. Lots of great food and drink.

That I’ve done, though mostly on a rooftop (Broadway and 43rd, I believe), only briefly on ground level.

 

My memory of it is a bit vague.  I’ve been assured I enjoyed myself.

 

Cheers,

Only if I really know the piece; there are less than a dozen compositions that I can "hear" by reading the score alone.  Then again, I'm not much of a musician.

Without doubt a great restaurant town.  Like most such scenes it changes all the time, however, so it's good to have someone local who knows the scene.

 

One of the worst meals I've ever had at an upscale restaurant was in the Quarter a few years back.  A very famous one, as it happens.

 

Cheers,

I was in NOLA for work the day of(and after) the BCS National Championship college football game in 2008. LSU vs Ohio State...and the game was played at the Superdome.

That felt somewhat like Mardi Gras. I stayed at the W and Bourbon Street was sheer madness. LSU won and the party went on throughout the night.

I had to postpone my first appt the next day. Client "understood."

Sounds like there's one on the not recommended list.

For what it's worth, my wife and I have found that public rating, such as yelp and the like, are a terrible way to find good restaurants. The number 1 rated restaurant in Louisville was terrible all three times we went there. Lower rates ones were spectacular. I'd call them regional "destination" restaurants in fact.

A lot of people are "sheep" on rating sites when it comes to restaurants. They glorify the popular spots and never visit the less glamorous places..which can be as good, if not better.
