    Can't friggin' wait!!!
    Louis Armstrong Airport has a ton of cabs. I've had to use cabs a few times thanks to work trips there and it was quite easy getting from the airport to downtown. Of course, it will be a longer wait because of the influx of people but I do not think you're going to be waiting for an hour.

    Andouille (great SN, BTW), Can you recommend a good soul food joint?

    I was going to give Willie Mae's a try but if there's one better, I'd love to hear about it.

    Re: Super Bowl Road Trip -- Post Your Travel Plans, Suggestions Etc Here!

    Heading down on the cheap with 4 other Raven maniacs. I am looking to prepay for all day parking for Friday and Saturday near the French Quarter. Here are our particulars:

    - Flying into Jackson, MS on Thursday
    - Staying in Gonzales for 3 nights
    - Flying out on Nawlins Sunday morning – home in time for pregame party and the big game.

    As you can see, we doing this on the cheap and would like to drive into the city Friday and Saturday, park the car and do the town (as well as the NFL stuff!).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I usually just hang out in Kenner or Metairie, but every couple years I take the airport shuttle, which I have found to be cleaner, cheaper and more secure than most cabbies. I last took the shuttle last summer. If you use that approach, make a reservation.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Def not "alarmist"...I am a mommy and I want my child to be safe and I cannot thank you enough for bringing to my attention.

    I called the office and they are telling me that the "projects" have already been leveled? I haven't forked over the deposit yet so I'm panicking trying to find something else....everyone in my group thinks I'm over reacting and that we will be "fine". If I have a safer option, obvs I wanna take it.

    You mentioned a safer RV lot...do you happen to know the location or rental agency...anything that would help me in my search to find it?

    Again, thank you so very much for your help. Ravens fans are the best!

    GO RAVENS!!

    Try this one out. It's on the westbank about a 15 minute straight shot to the CBD/FQ

    Bayou Segnette State Park

    or this (not sure if they do RV but it's close and worth a shot)
    Brechtel Park

    Those projects have definitely not been leveled........but if there is extra security for SB, and the lot is pretty full, in that atmosphere you should be OK....and you have a bunch of people around, you can go for it. And in the daytime its no problem at all. Let me know if you are there and I will stop by.

    This is the best one in the area: http://www.fqrv.com/location.html

    I am reposting this map, now corrected with driving instructions from Biloxi to parking in New Orleans. Take the 610 bypass and then get back on 10 headed to New Orleans business district. Park on the street by the blue marker on Canal Steet and take the streetcar to the Dome area, French Quarter, etc. Avoid driving around the FQ, Dome or CBD at all costs.

    I was going to give Willie Mae's a try but if there's one better, I'd love to hear about it.
    Willie Mae's is good and iconic.
    The Praline Connection in the Marigny is excellent as well.

There is another RV lot in that general area, but its in a more secure location on the other side of the highway. I hope I am not being too alarmist, but just realistic.
    How is the Mardi Gras RV lot Nola?

    Re: New Orleans Trip Information Thread

    T,
    thanks again for your kindness of offering info, tips, etc. I guess everyone in my group just thinks I'm being a Missy...a sissy mommy...maybe I am...but I'm still trying to find something else if I can...I keep running into "sold out" for anything within the vicicnity...my group wants to be close to the atmosphere of the SB so staying in MS is not going over well with this group. my search continues...for a lil while anyway...they're only giving me so much time before they INSIST that we book the reservation...thanks again for your help.

    GO RAVENS!!
    Deb :-)
