Taking two friends to NOLA for their first time visit. Will be arriving on Thursday night and just figured out the Saints open that night. We are staying the the Quarter. Have reservations at Emril's for Friday night and have brunch reservations for Sunday. Saturday will be the Ole Miss game. Any recommendations for Thursday night would be appreciated. I am scared it will be really crowded in the Quarter. Looking for a nice bar with food in the Quarter to take these people for their first night in New Orleans. I have never been in the city for a Saints game. Will the crowds thin out during the game?
Thanks for any advise!
