hi and thanks to all the locals who answer so many questions so thoughtfully.
i am going to new orleans for my birthday next sat. wiht my husband and one other couple. my husband and i have been to new orleans many times but due to varying co-visitors, we mostly stay in the quarter. on our own, we made it over to the columns (lovely) and the maple leaf but don't want uptown this time. we're having dinner at bayona and i want local music flavor to inspire some dancing (doesn't take too much) that is AWAY from bourbon. any suggestions are most welcome. hope everyone has a great weekend.
