    I have a friend that just returned from doing work for katrina, its still REALLy nasty and bad in most of the city and surounding around, however, where they have mardi gras and all that is pretty much good and stuff. Just what I heard

    If you stay in the French Quarter you'll be okay but like Jason said many of the surround areas are still in bad shape..many still without running water or power.

    Hang out on Bourbon Street, go to Preservation Hall to hear great Jazz, hit up Cafe Du Monde for chicory coffee and biengets, try a Hurricane at Pat O'Briens, eat some Cajun/Creole food, check out the French Market, try a muffaletta sandwich from the Central Grocery, have a Po Boy from one of the many places thatserve them, visit the Acme Oyster Company for a great time and great oysters, go to the Tropical Isle for a few Hand Grenades, take the St Charles streetcar through the Garden District....just a few of my favorite things to do in Nawlins.

    I'm going in August ~ so bring back lots of stories. I've never been. We (there are about 25+ of us going) are staying in the french quarter. Hand grenades are a MUST I heard :beerdrink:

    I'm part of that group too. And it's up to 34 people. :shock: :p Some of us went last year too, and had SUCH a great time! Bourbon Street is fun day and night, lots of bars and clubs to go to.
