1 Watch jazz legend Ellis Marsalis tickle the keys

Make your dinner reservations for Friday night at Snug Harbor. This cozy restaurant and bar in the tucked-away neighborhood of the Marigny is the place to be Friday nights when when you might catch legendary jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis live.

2 Suck on a crawfish head

You can't say you've done New Orleans without mastering the art of eating crawfish. Order a pound of boiled crawfish at Acme Oyster then get down to business.

3 Feast on a Famous Fried Favorite

Liuzza's, a neighborhood institution, boasts the best fried dill pickles and the coldest beer in town served in frosted schooners.

4 Catch a Zulu coconut at Mardi Gras

If you're going to Mardi Gras, keep your eyes peeled for the Zulu Parade. Rare and sought after, a Zulu coconut is the ultimate prize for all Mardi Gras on-lookers. Of course catching some beads is pretty fun too.

 

5 Explore Oak Alley Plantation

If you really want the Anne Rice effect, take a trip out to Oak Alley Plantation to stroll under the 300 year old oak trees that provided the setting for the movie Interview with a Vampire.

6 Order a drive-through Daquiri

Yes, that's right. You can order cocktails "to go" in New Orleans. Of course, we encourage everyone to do this in moderation.
