      Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
      It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
      Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.

      ... sucked us in for some purchases, then thirst set in and after a few cocktail tastings we settled on a Pina Colada and Margarita to sip on while looking over the Mississippi. On our return to Mulates we ordered a tasting plate (crawfish, Tilapia, frogs legs, alligator, Cajun pies, stuffed mushrooms and calamari. The band started up and we really enjoyed the Cajun music at a reasonable volume for a change! ...

      ... in time for rush hour. I didn’t realize Jessica had never driven in rush hour traffic before, as well as a monsoon, but the concerned look on her face and the whiteness in her knuckles as her hands tightly gripped the steering wheel silently informed me she was ready to get to the hotel fast. We sat idled for the next twenty minutes, providing relief to Jessica as the storm passed. The traffic also provided a continuous great view of the Superdome. Once ...

      NO Jazz Festival Day 1

      The French Market Inn was a bit more noisy than we have been used to recently but we had a reasonable night's sleep. Got up lazily and went off on foot in search of somewhere to have breakfast before getting the bus to the Jazz Festival.
      Decided to try a Cafe Beignet on Royal Street and have the traditional Beignet and coffee at least for the first morning. Beignets are a fried doughnut covered in icing sugar. Unbelievably fattening. We also ordered a mushroom omelete ...

      ... at a live show. Before we knew it the bar was filled with all sorts of people and we just danced and sang the night away. They performed based on requests and could literally nail every song. The band consisted of 3 men and 3 women and they all held their own and complimented eachothers talent.

      We headed back to the street for another hand grenade, a fish bowl and a stroll through the party. Steph ended up with a parrot on her ...

      ... s perspective. Nick in particular, is a wealth of knowledge and is a super intelligent friendly guy who has done New Orleans and America proud. We were taken to key spots around the city by foot in his fabulous Mercedes. To name a few, Jackson Square, Moon Walk on the Mississippi River, the lake, City Park, several affluent neighbourhoods and we even drove by a few fraternities parties. Fraternities actually exist by the way, not just in the movies. Some require a ...
