    Hello fellow BA's,

    I'm hittin the road again for the first weekend of November... and I'm heading to New Orleans for two nights... 11/1 and 11/2.

    I plan on hitting up Steins and Le Bon Temps Roule... I'll be staying on Magazine St and eating at Jacque Imo's... like... every day. Outside of that, I don't know what else to eat, drink, or see... looking for bottle shops and bars... and amazing food

    Also, if anyone has any tips on where to rent a bike or a tandem for the weekend, please let me know!

    Go to Liuzza's 3636 Bienville. Genuine neighborhood spot. I love this place.

    Send him off down there past Mystery Street. My best friend lives in the area and this IS NOLA. I do miss Uglesich's. That place was the shit!

    Bulldog on Magazine is another solid spot for beer. And while your at it, grab a burrito at Juan's!

    Boucherie is a must for food. They usually have nice beer options as well.

    Avenue Pub goes without saying.

    Ahhh, my favorite college lunch spot back in the late 90's. Fried green tomatoes, grilled shrimp po-boy, oysters on the half-shell and an Abita Amber. Heaven on Earth!

    Hands down your best beer bet is Avenue Pub!... I found Bulldog to be a bit annoying dam young peeps. Anyhow, my wife and I are heading for nola Mid October. Where on Frenchmen would you head for a bit of music and a few brews. What acts should we look for regardless of brews available? No intention of stealing original posters mojo. Thanks

    Last I heard wasn't Tipitinas serving NOLA? Also NOLA sponsors a really cool concert series in Armstrong park( just outside of the FQ) ... Thursday nights I believe?

    While I have been to New Orleans, 20+ times, I’m always looking out for new places to try.
    Can anyone suggest a decent place to watch the NFL & college games that has a good beer & food selection and lots of TVs? It should be in the Central Business District or the Quarter.

    Specifically, I have a couple of folks with me that are on their first trip to the city but that are also really anxious to also check out the Bears game on 10/10. I thought Gordon Biersch could work, but fell that there has to be someplace better.

    Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

    Crescent City Brewhouse in the Quarter makes their own beer that is decent and has some good food as well. Don't have a ton of TVs from what I remember but you could certainly catch the game

    Industry Bar and Kitchen in the Quarter was decent. I watched some college baseball there and thought they had a nice selection of beer (by the Quarter standards). Mannings is in same general area as Gordon Biersch, if not immediately across from it. It will have plenty of t.v.s but beer may be lacking. Locals may shit on both these suggestions.

    Just about any bar will have Thursday night football on. Just depends on what's more important to or beer.

    Guys, thanks for the suggestions!!
    We ended up watching the game at the Bayou Burger bar on Bourbon. They have a ton of TVs, good food and a decent tap beer list. I also made it to the Green Goddess and the Jager Haus. In spite of my best efforts we didnt make it out the Avenue Pub. But since I will be there for 5 days around the Saints game on 11/10, I am sure I will during that trip.
