    Bourbon is overpriced and dirty. Check out Frenchman St instead-1 block out of the French Quarter- follow Decatur St to Esplanade, cross over it and take the street that curves behind Check Point Charlie's, you're on Frenchman-it's got bars with some of the best local bands, great food, and the city's best jazz club: Snug Harbor. Mix with the locals and enjoy cheap drinks and a 24 hour party.

    If You're Going To See a Movie...

    The Prytania Theatre, founded in the early 1900s, is the last remaining single-screen suburban theatre in Louisiana. The owners have gone through an exorbitant amount of work to bring out the unique, old-fashioned feel of this historical landmark. It ranks as my best place to see a movie, because of its quaint qualities. Normally no lines and low prices, with discounts for students = its time to go to the movies!

    Igor's Lounge & Bar - bar, pool hall, and laundromat all rolled into one. Should you get stuck doing laundry head on down to 2133 St. Charles Ave. and be entertained while you wait for your whites to dry. http://www.igors.org.

    For a great taste of nightlife and a good place to meet locals, head over to Frenchmen Street. Its a little difficult to find (and best not to try to find it at night because some of the surrounding areas are a little shady) but worth the effort. Its a small street lined with cafes and bars with live music. Its less crowded than Bourbon Street, less touristy, and every bit as fun.

    Here's a map of the area around Frenchmen (thanks to MapQuest.com) - notice the residential end of Bourbon Street on the bottom of the map, just left of center.

    Le bar 'Le bon temps roulé'. Situé à l'extérieur du Vieux Carré (4801 Magazine, on doit y aller en voiture du Carré Français), on peut y voir de très bons bands de blues. On y a vu Kermitt Ruffins dont j'avais acheté un CD quelques jours auparavant. Excellent show! Bar de jeunes universitaires avec tables de billard et bonnes bières. Ça n'a rien à voir avec la rue Bourbon et c'est intéressant parce qu'on peut y voir des gens locaux. Très peu de touristes y vont.

    À voir pour ceux qui peuvent se déplacer par leurs propres moyens : la plage qui longe la 90 Est direction Biloxi. Belle vue!
