First trip...need some advice!

volntitan | Nov 30, 2009 07:19 AM next week is our 25th Anniversary so I am surprising her with a long weekend trip to New Orleans. I had this romantic ideal in my head where I just "kidnap" her from work and don't tell her where we are going. Well, reality has set in and I'm not really prepared. In addition to having to pack all our stuff (I'm a guy remember), I haven't really planned anything or know what to do. I need some help...Please!

This our first trip to New Orleans. I got a room at a Bed and Breakfast (Grand Victorian), so that is taken care of. Beyond that, that is it. Not sure where to eat, what to see, or what to do. I want it to be fun. I would like to eat somewhere where we can make reservations (so not waiting around), but not too stuffy (or outrageously expensive) so don't have to bring a coat and tie. My wife isn't the most adventurous eater (no strange meats), but I do what her to experience the food down there. I thought about doing one of those cocktail tours, but not sure if they are worth the money or not. Also we are both HUGE Tennessee Titans fans, so Sunday we will have to find a sports bar to watch the game (it's the Colts!), so any recommendations there would be great.

I am so freaked out and overwhelmed. I want to give her a great trip and don't want to be down there just wondering what do to.

Thanks in advance for any help and for the patience. I'm a guy, so I need to be told what to do....
