I also have some dinners planned that are work-related, committee entertaining and the like. I made reservations for Galatoire's and The Palace Cafe, though I actually won't be attending the dinners. I will, however, be able to attend a dinner at Bayona, and I can't wait! We're going to try to hit up Cafe du Monde, of course: BEIGNETS!
The timing is perfect then for Alice Q. Foodie to be posting about New Orleans! Check out her posts here and here. Her photos are getting me so excited for the trip - check out the photos from the crawfish festival!!!

I do have one night free and I'll be going out with some colleagues. When we do get a chance to be free from authors and guests, we tend to try to get to local places, if we can, and something very relaxed (since these are usually the only opportunities we have to get out of our business attire). Those of you who have been to New Orleans, do you have any suggestions for something relatively close to the convention center that's relaxed with a local flair? I know we'll be right in the French Quarter and, thus, probably in tourist hell...but there's got to be something, right? Let me know!
Eat, drink, and hope this
