Next weekend in NO (and Slidell?)

Hi there -- seeking advice on a food and entertainment itinerary for next weekend. We are not super-gourmet types, so will give board favorites like Brigtsen's, Stella, August et al a miss.

Arriving late Friday (11p or later) to our Warehouse district hotel -- if we are peckish, MiLa's bar for a bite? How far is the Delachaise?

Next day, thinking about Cafe du Monde for breakfast or skipping breakfast altogether for an early lunch at Central Market. No real plans that day except bouncing around the Quarter. Would like to do Irene's for dinner -- should we plan on getting there early to avoid the wait? That evening we are thinking about going to the Rock n Bowl to see Kermit Ruffins (would love feedback on whether the trip is worth it) -- are there other dinner choices on the way to or near by the Rock n Bowl?

Sunday we have a brunch reservation at Commander's but we're not wedded to the plan. We might prefer po boys for a more lunch-type place, so please suggest. Alternatively, we were hoping to see a parade, but apparently the only parade next weekend is Krewe of Slidellians in Slidell. Is it worth the trip?? Any good eats in Slidell if we do go there? At a parade, can you buy food on the route, especially King Cake and other "typical" Mardi Gras food? Can we take public transport from NO to Slidell or would we need a car?

Sunday night we'd like to go to Preservation Hall, so thinking about dinner nearby. Thoughts include Cafe Adelaide, Meauxbar Bistro, even Acme, but would appreciate suggestions!

Thanks all!
