oh and let us not forget the cocktails

here's my list so far... please feel free to add any. a special thanks to "yammers" from whom i pirated most of this list. :) btw this has some of my notes... please ignore or correct me at will...

old absinthe house not sure if anyone it up for trying this stuff, but apparently they have a tour, perhaps a "when in rome"? thing???

French 75/Arnaud's (french 75 is a cocktail, gin, simple syrup, champagne & lemon juice... supposed to be quite refreshing)

lafitte's blacksmith shop (also known for their hurricane's)

pat o'brien's hurricane's and piano bar - is this just terrible tourist trap? or kind of a touristy but worth a stop anyway? I have never really had a good hurricane... if not here, where is the best place? and a hand grenade just sounds kind of nasty (but I don't like melon liquer). worth trying? I'll try anything once. :)

Tujagues (known for ramos gin fizzes, pimm's cup and sazerac... sazerac is apparently cognac & bitters), they also apparently brine their own olives... make good bloody mary's... and la louisane, which is some kind of absitch and rye whiskey? not for the timid... ? but i am game... heard food is not so good, but bar is great.

napoleon house - heard has good food *and* drinks

bourbon milk punch... where is a good place? when is this typically consumed? brunch?

anything else? we aren't planning on tying one on every day, but a few drinks before dinner, etc. is always nice.

also, any great places for music and drinks?

thanks in advance!
