Help Planning a 5-Day Stay in NOLA

jcmoney | Dec 22, 201411:55 AM

Hello, making my first NOLA trip with my girlfriend - have received so many recommendations that I could use some help just finding out if I'm doing this all right. Here's my itinerary, let me know if there's anything I am missing that I MUST try, or anything that is over-touristy and not worth checking out.

I'm a big music guy so I've based a lot around what music venues I'm checking out:

Friday - Breakfast at Brennans, Late lunch at Cochon, Elton John/Billy Joel tribute at House of Blues, late night George Porter's BDAY bash @ Howlin Wolf

Saturday - Jazz brunch @ Commander's Palace, drinks around Frenchman St, Dinner @ either Praline Connection or Three Muses, two shows @ Blue Nile

Sunday - Lunch @ Willie Maes, Pat-O's piano bar for drinks, Preservation Hall @ either 6 or 8 - NEED DINNER REC

Monday - Peche for Lunch, WW II Museum, Dinner @ Jacques-Imos, Late Show @ Maple Leaf Bar

Tuesday - Breakfast @ Stanley, snack @ Cafe Du Mond, check out Audobon Zoo, Po Boys + Beer @ Domilise, Need Dinner Recs

Hows this looking?

House of Blues New Orleans,
Commander's Palace,
Three Muses,
Blue Nile,
Preservation Hall,
Maple Leaf Bar,
Cochon Butcher,
The Praline Connection
