Real New Orleans- high budget, low budget, and Katrina

Hi,

I will be coming to New Orleans for the first time with someone who has been countless times already. I want to make the trip special for us both. I'm looking for places that fit into the following categories:

romantic
funky
off the beaten path
local gems that locals love

I have only three days and really want full-out sensory experiences. I love high budget experiences as well as dives.

Also, I have a burning need to see the damage that Katrina levelled. I would love to support local restaurants in more ravaged areas as well. I want to get a real sense of New Orleans. If that means straying off the tourist path, so be it....

If you can also recommend a good local source of information, ie, is there a good publication/local website from which I can glean info about what to do that weekend, what to see, what to eat, etc., that would be great.

Thanks so much!
Jessie
