Christmas Eve and Christmas Day?

Hi NO Hounds --

I've done some searching regarding places that are open on the holiday, but I have a few specific questions. First, does Galatoire's serve the full menu on Christmas Eve, or just the Reveillon menu? Also, I've seen references to an auction for Christmas Eve tables? Is it possible for a regular ol' party of 3 to get in? If we want to go for dinner (early dinner is just fine), do we need to be waiting all day (Christmas Eve is a Saturday)?

Second, we we thinking to check out the Christmas lights at the Celebration in the Oaks in City Park on Christmas Day, since very little else seems to be open. Is there anything over in that vicinity that's worth checking out and is likely to be open? (I can do the legwork on finding out what's open).

Thanks so much!

Galatoire's Restaurant
209 Bourbon St., New Orleans, LA 70130
