odd, involved question about taxis

tamara | Feb 12, 2002 07:21 PM

My two teenage children and I (we live in New York) are spending their Presidents' Week vacation in New Orleans, arriving on Sunday night. Thanks to this fabulous board I have booked dinner at Bayona and Galatoire's and have all kinds of plans for Jacques-Imo's, Uglesich's, Mother's, zydeco at Rock n' Bowl, etc. And we're having dinner with friends at Upperline the night we arrive--except for my singer-songwriter 16-year-old son, who, when I told him Bob Dylan was playing at the Lakefront arena that same night, opted for music over food. Here's the problem: I've got him a ticket to the show, but he will have to get there and back to our hotel (in the French Quarter) by himself. I can put him in a taxi for the outward bound trip, but how on earth will he get back? I'm a bit nervous--is there some well-lit, unscary, easy-to-find place at the arena where he can hail a cab himself? (he's a New York City kid used to subways, not some hick, but still.) Knowledgeable Nola natives please respond!
