    CANNOT WAIT!!! It looks like I'll have a great time based on these suggestions. I emailed my girl the thread link so she can choose what we'll do based on your suggestions.
    Will any of you be at the Blazers or Lakers game?
    If she wants to have one night were you guys get dressed up and have a proper sit down meal you really can't beat Antonie's.

    No way man, I've found that our MILD is usually the SPICY in other states (Plus the redbeans have better flavor/spice...I'm hungry now haha)

    WIN!

    I think you'd have a better Popeye's experience if you ate at one outside of the ghetto!


    Time for some football!!!

    Is Hansen's Snow Blizz still in operation? I remember they would sell snowballs in buckets and garbage can sizes.

    Brunch at Commander's Palace is awesome and affordable (compared to dinner). Call days in advance. I've never seen customer service like this...ever! Food was amazing...sad when it was gone.

    Cafe Du Monde....and absolute MUST!

    Palace Cafe was great last time I ate there...White Chocolate Bread Pudding!

    You can actually make a reservation at Commander's online. And yeah, do the lunch and set it up well in advance. Nothing wrong with setting up now, in fact.

    The quality of a Popeyes has nothing to do with it being in NOLA or not, I'm pretty sure(not certain) that there are a handful of Popeyes that still belong to the Copeland' family. Most of these are across South Louisiana.

    Commander's rocks! The first bite of food I ever ate there was the shrimp and tasso with jelly pepper appetizer. Since then I've had so many great dishes and meals there I can't even begin to say. While making a slight career adjustment about 10 years ago, I spent a year working at Commanders running the Patio Room. The Brennans were great to work for...especially Ms. Ella...and the commitment to great food and service was second to none. I was also very fortunate in the fact that when I was there, Jamie Shannon was still healthy and executive chef. Jamie was fresh off of winning the James Beard foundation's "Best Chef, Southeast Region" award. He was unlike any executive chef I've ever known. It's ashamed that cancer took him way too soon. The current excutive chef Tory McPhail is fantastic as well.

    This is awesome info thanks guys! I'll definitely be looking up this thread when I head to New Orleans next year!

    P.S. Any suggestions on the best time of year to go? I definitely want to schedule it so I can see a Hornet game or two so the summer is out and I'd prefer the coolest weather you guys can offer. Also not sure I want to come during Mardi Gras due to the craziness and higher expense

    Thanks man...once next year's Hornet schedule is out I'll be planning my trip.

    Don't forget that if you're coming in March, you'll be right in the thick of crawfish season. If you like seafood, you might want to seek out a couple pounds of the critters at KJeans or Deanie's, etc. or you can find any number of bars that have free crawfish nights, though the results of those are often a mixed bag.

    If the crawfish in NOLA are anywhere near as spicy as the ones in the Laffy area then I probably wouldn't recommend them to a tourist.

    If you do go to a place like Commander's, you'll need slacks and at least a sports coat. Otherwise, if you come cruising in, in your shorts, which is what I'd like to do, you'll look like a turd in a punchbowl.

    1. West Coast Hornet...as much as I hate to admit it, I had an incredible snoball near Venice Beach by one of the mobile shaved ice trucks.

    2. Metalzo...you should consider going to NOLA for French Quarter Fest. Weather's not too bad, and it's right at the end of Hornet season so you could possibly catch a meaningful game.

    3. Cochon has won some awards in the past couple years. They won one of the big travel magazine's 'USA's best restaurant' award. I've eaten there and it's good, especially for the price.

    4. Stella and Bayona deserve to be mentioned on this thread as well. You're gonna need Mucho Jannero though.
