    what is something fun to do in the french quarter?

    i am trying to plan a date in the french quarter that does not revolve around bourbon street. nor taking one of those horse carriages. is there something else fun to do besides drink? When I was a graduate student in New Orleans some of my favorite French Quarter activities were to start with a lunch at Napoleon House. http://www.napoleonhouse.com/ Then move onto the Louisiana State Museum. http://lsm.crt.state.la.us/ It is a wonderful museum with a delightful Mardi Gras exhibit featuring some historic gowns and "royalty" items.

    What are the hottest upscale clubs in New Orleans at the moment?

    I’m looking for a fun place to take a bachelor party in New Orleans on a Saturday night. We’re happy to pay for bottle service, but we’re looking for a sophisticated, diverse crowd and an active dance floor – preferably hip-hop music. French Quarter location is a bonus. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Yo Mama!

    Just off of Bourbon Street, a couple of doors down at 727 St. Peter is the coolest little pit stop with the best jukebox in the Quarter.  Yo Mama’s Bar and Grill is home to ice cold Abita and other beers and cocktails that hit the spot on a Vieux Carre’ cruise. Jumbo burgers piled with your choice of extras like bacon, mushrooms, cheddar and peanut butter (I kid you not) are mouthwateringly juicy.  A burger order includes an oversized loaded baked potato. You lightweights better share with a friend.  You will never finish this mountain of food alone. This time of year there is also spicy hot boiled crawfish. Good stuff!…
