The place you really have to visit is Rover Down South. Its just 10 - 15 minutes from the french quarter. Call George first and see if he is available for visitors.

There is this small restaurant in the warehouse(?) quarter that decked out in surf/beach decor that is run by two surfers, I think. Awesome food, good music, tons of fun. Just cant remember the name of the place, lol.

Just don't leave the state without eating boudin, tasso, crawfish bisque, rice and gravy, a shrimp po'boy and a muffaletta or two. Go listen to some live music and dance with the locals. You just have to do that. Mais yeah sha!!

Where they came up with oysters Rockefeller, the devils coffee, etc. They have one hell of a wine cellar as well.
