Hey guys, I've got business to do in Hattiesburg, MS on a Monday so figured I'd combine business with pleasure and come in to New Orleans Sunday morning to spend Sunday and a little bit of Monday in the city. Basically, I just wanted to get some places that I HAVE to go to to get a taste of New Orleans. I'm staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in the French Quarter and am going to the Saints game at 3 that afternoon. I planned on hitting up Cafe Du Monde for some famous beignets, and maybe Central Grocery before the game?
If anyone could just point me in the right direction to the best local places to get a quick taste of New Orleans while I'm there I'd really appreciate it alot.
PS- I'm from Orlando so I'm not really into the touristy crap haha
