Another good drink to buy on Bourbon,  The Hand Grenade.   Like The Hurricane, be careful,  things of alcohol in 1 drink.   You can get those at The Tropical Isle. ANY of the Brennan's restaurants,  John Besch restaurants are GREAT too, as well as Emeril's. There's a few places on Fulton St, which is near WWII museum that have Great food as well.   Try to get tickets to the Saints game that weekend(they play the Cardinals that weekend, I'm going).  Even if you're not a Saints fan, the games are AWESOME!  Game Sunday's are very busy in the city.  Walk-Ons restaurant/ sports bar on Poydras St, VERY close to the Dome is a good place to catch College Games on Saturday.   Tipitinas is a bar with Great local bands. 

 

There really is a TON to do.   If you have a place in mind that you need insight into, let me know.

I will be here. Lining up about 2 hours before the gates open. Anyone going to be out there rail sitting all day? This will be my 4th show of the NITL tour, and my 5th GNR show all toll. I'm hoping for a Locomotive at this show! Come find me all weekend and we can smoke on something;)

Good news is GnR is day one, so it won't be impacted by other days. Also the previously forecasted thunder isn't present anymore.

I'll be at the show (New Orleans is my home town so I'm flying in Thursday) if anyone wants to meet up at the festival.

Also if you're looking for good spots to eat, Port of Call has a great burger.

And don't miss out on walking around the Super Dome on Sunday if you're still in the city then. The Saints are at home this week and it's always a scene there.

100% Parkway Tavern is the spot to go.

Shortstop Poboys off Airline is also good because they have cane sugar soda

I also favor Bear’s poboys in Metairie off of Met Rd. They make a mean Ham & Cheese po-boy if you need a break from all the sea food

Any idea on parking? Is it paid parking?


i assume you arent a nola native? the festival is held in our “city park”, a green space thats essentially our Central Park. everything around this area is residential parking. 
 
essentially its a free for all. Your best bet is going to be getting there and parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. Neighbors might offer a “premium” for a $20, but nothing you wouldn’t be able to catch sometime between 12-2. Friday is also usually the slowest of the 3 days as the festivals target audience is in class still 3-4 hours after the Festival opens @ 12. 
 

I could try to provide you with a top down map of the area and what streets I believe will be available to park on.
