    Re: New Orleans Saints game Oct 29th



    We are staying at the Doubletree on Canal St. Can you give me any kind of info on the area?
    Someone else just wrote me a PM about the Doubletree; looks like it's going to be South Maryland that weekend!

    It's an excellent hotel and the location is prime; you'll be within easy walking distance of the French Quarter and right by the riverfront streetcar line, which is very handy for getting back to the hotel after bopping around the Quarter for a few hours. If you're into it, Harrah's Casino is right across the street--very convenient if you gamble away your cab fare. You'll also be close to Emeril's if you're looking for a great restaurant nearby, but check for reservations; they may well be booked up. Another great restaurant near the Doubletree--though you wouldn't think so to look at it--is Mother's. It's about three or four blocks from the hotel. They make some of the best po-boys (New Orleans-style overstuffed sandwiches on french bread) and breakfast dishes you'll taste anywhere in the city, and they cater a lot to locals; they're the real deal, not a tourist trap.

    I'd called the hotel earlier to find out if they offered shuttle service to the Superdome; unfortunately, they do not. However, cabs are plentiful and cheap. You'll definitely want transportation to the Dome, since it's a fairly long walk (the hotel is down by the river while the Dome is a good fifteen or so city blocks toward the lake). It's a good idea to get to the Dome fairly early, as it takes some time to move about 70,000 people from outside to inside.

    Hope you have a fantastic time; all of us down here are really appreciative of visitors coming back to our city, and no matter who comes out on top Sunday, we want you to have a great visit!

    Thank you for all the information. It makes it easier going someplace when you have some info about what, when and where.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your city and having a blast

    Thanks Sue! Not all of us Ravens fans are from MD. My girl is flying here to FL and we'll be driving over for the game, we're at the Holiday Inn Superdome with about 40 other fans.
    I appreciate all the good tips and hints you've posted here, what is it you all say there "Laissez les bontemps rouler?" Can't wait!

    Re: New Orleans Saints game Oct 29th

    Wasn't sure if I was going to make it (long story), but I will definitely be in New Orleans and barring any unforseen circumstances (if you can call drinking til the sun comes up Saturday night as unforseen), will be at the game.

    So....I was hoping that one of those roosts/nests that were going will have an extra ticket. I can always get one from a scalper, but I'd rather be by Ravens fans.

    Where is everyone planning to meet before the game?

    Obviously on Bourbon Street Sat night and the Sunday wee hours. I'll be hitting Cafe du Monde on Sunday morning if I wake up on time.

    I believe that there a dozen or so who plan to try to hook up with me in the plaza between the boarded up New Orleans Centre and Gate C, near the bandstand.

    Hurting: If you can get your butts out of bed, let's meet up in the large Plaza in front of Gate C around 10 am to 10:30 am. If as in past Saints games I have attended, this will be a large outdoor party with rock, country, or blues band. Dollar beers and inexpensive food are sold in the mall which you must traverse leading to the Plaza from La Salle Street.

    Thanks T. I will be with the wife on this road trip and I am hoping to get her in bed early enough to go to the game early. I have told her we should use Friday as her late night of partying New Orleans style.

    Is gate C on the North side of the stadium right on Poydras street? I am definitely going to try to make tthe party especially $1 beer.

    We lwave early Friday morning and get into town early Friday afternoon.

    I just got a pair of tickets so I'll definitely be there. I don't know if I can meet up on Bourban since I will be with a bunch of friends I haven't seen in a while (and we will most likely be at the better/less touristy Frenchman St).

    I'll try to meet up before the game if I can.
