    It looks like a total shithole... there must be something to do there besides going down to Bourbon street and throwing up

    That's Bourbon street

    Plenty else to see in NOLA

    From seeing your cruise pics, I'd suggest you take a walking gravesite tour. Or haunted NOLA spots. You can drink during each of them.

    I went on a night time airboat swamp ride a few years ago and saw a bunch of crocs. They let you bring a cooler of beer on, which you can do pretty much anywhere in NOLA.

    What do you like to do elsewhere? I go to New Orleans twice a year, its my favorite town that I've ever visited.

    If youre just spending the day there before your cruise, dont plan anything. Just walk around the french quarter and eat and drink. They allow open container on all streets similar to Vegas and the restaurants are excellent. Also some great architecture. Theres plenty of live music in the evenings also, especially if you wander over towards the Frenchman Street area. There's not really a "one main thing" to do.

    I am a total fan of the place; its like my mecca. There are so many awesome restaurants i couldnt suggest one but just walk around and pick something...theres something liberating from not having a plan. If youre near the Cathedral ( main tourist area) Muriel's, Tujaques, and Tableau are all great for mid-range nice meals. For bars of historical note, Napoleon House and LaFitte's Blacksmith Shop are sort of must-see. LaFittes is supposedly the oldest continually operating bar going back over 200 years. Napoleon house decent food as does pretty much every place in town.

    If you had to go on just one tour, i would suggest the Ursaline Convent....the original portion was built by the French Army corps. of Engineers and is about 300 years old.

    Really, the first time i was there i had a room reservation and no other plans....you can literally just wander around with booze in your hand and eat wherever you find something that looks or smells good. :wub:

    I went to Mardi Gra once. We parked in some
    people's yard for a $100 and walked a few miles. I was video taping us and we were almost there and we crossed a dude leaning against a USPO mail box, jerking off. We yelled at him, but he kept at it. I walked by him and gently kicked him onto his side, motherfucker never missed a stroke.
