I've read on this message board that HOB is not that great. However, the focus of the "surprise birthday" in NOLA is going to see Delbert McClinton at the HOB on his birthday (good thing my DH doesn't use the computer much...).
Turns out, HOB is a "standing only venue" and while we will be dancing quite a bit, it's nice to have a place to sit.
Since HOB serves dinner, they must have tables. I bet if we make dinner reservations we get a table for the evening.
Will dinner at the HOB on his birhday be a disaster?...
We do have reservations at Bayona for the night before (not the same night so we could take our time). We'll also be having breakfast at Brennans, and maybe try to get a lunch in at Galatoire's. Way too much eating!!! ;-)
