Help with Thanksgiving plans.

I have been researching restaurants and things to do in NOLA for days and my head is spinning!! My husband and I are flying down from Buffalo, my eldest son (22) from DC and my youngest son (20) from Johnson and Wales Culinary School in RI on the 20th of November for a week. Obviously, we will be there for Thanksgiving and that is my biggest dilemma. Should we do the Fair grounds? I hear it is a tradition to watch the race on Thanksgiving. If not, what is the best place for holiday dinners? Do we attempt Turducken? I doubt if my sons will be packing a jacket or anything but jeans, and I understand that maybe a limitation for some restaurants. The list we have going so far for the rest of the week is:

Herbsaint ……dinner
Galatoire’s… dinner

Whaddya think?

Also we were all looking forward to taking a cooking class, what classes are recommended? Then there is all the tours……..any recommendations there? Swamp tours, ghost tours, post Katrina tours, plantation tours……..phew!!
Thanks in advance.
