My boyfriend and I are taken our first trip to Mardi Gras 2014 together and I've never been to the big easy. I want to make the best out of this trip and soak up some good ol cajun soul food and culture. I have no interest for touristy places. Anyone have some good local suggestions on where to go for Great Crawdads and Gumbo/Jambalaya? Also I have a need to hear some good jazz and sounds of New orleans! Any ideas??
