Try the Mudville Grille (the one on Beach Blvd though it's further from you.). I watched the ND game there last year, and there was a good group of M alumni and fans. Had a great time, and everyone was friendly.

I get to Jax regularly to visit family.

Drive down to the Quarter and grab a few aperitifs prior to KO.

At least ESPN is subliminally suggesting Go Blue every few minutes!

I think that is true of everyone's feed. Kinda annoying.

I will be there, but then again I only live an hour from the city. Best news is that I was able to score suite tix from my employer.

Craig James actually makes the most sense to me. Is there something wrong with me?

12/04/2011 - 9:14am Hoping for Sugar Bowl

As much as I despise a LSU-Bama rematch, I am in the precarious position of pulling for it. I really want UM in the Sugar Bowl as it is less than an hour away from home. Would love to see us play here in the dome.

I think there is a great deal more parity in the B1G than the SEC currently. The road teams in the B1G has been beat up pretty badly this year which has clustered the entire conference together tightly. Overall, we may be looking at more bowl eligible teams than the SEC this year die to the wider spread of talent in that conference.

Not terribly familiar with the hotels. If you can't find anything reasonable downtown, there are many in the Kenner / Metairie area which would be about 15-20 min drive depending on location.

11/22/2011 - 12:01pm Good list, but I would

Good list, but I would recommend the oysters at Drago's over Acme.

Long time lurker but first time poster.  Felt compelled to reply as I live oustide Baton Rouge and work near New Orleans.

IF we happen to get a bid to the Sugar Bowl, you can bet I will be going.  Not knowing your specific interests, here is my condensed list of things to do:

Visit the Quarter (including Bourbon Street.)  Bourbon is wall to wall bars and a sight to experience though you may be in a very crowded and drunken atmosphere.  There are plenty of good reaturants throughout the qurter though I would generally avoid any directly on Bourbon.  Try a beignet at Cafe Du Monde closer to the river.  Check out the jazz club inside the Roayl Sonesta Hotel (on Bourbon) which has very good talent.  Try an absinthe at the Absinthe House bar near St. Louis Cathedral.

Outside the quarter, try the jazz clubs on Frenchman Street.  The more famous ones include The Spotted Cat and Snug Harbor.  Top notch talent any night of the week.

Check out the WWII Museum which has an immense collection of memorabila form both the European and Pacific Theaters.  They also have a D-Day Theater experience produced by Tom Hnaks which is supposed to be outstanding.  Very good restaurant located in the museum called The American Sector.

If travelling with family, the Audubon Zoo (uptown) and Audubon Aquarium ( near the Quarter) are both very good.

Aso, there is a Harrah's Casino not far from the Quarter if your interests lie there.

If you have any specific questions or interests, let me know and I can try to point you in the right direction.
