Looking for some decent different ideas for NYE in NEW ORLEANS. The wife and I will be in from NYC and are not into the whole bar/club open bar thing....maybe a good dinner...maybe a trip to an outdoor location? I heard Jackson Square or the river is fun but I am afraid of showing up in a midst of one million people and not being able to get anywhere near where you want to be. In Times Square in NY there are so many people that its nearly impossible to get into the square and see anything. Ends up being just a bunch of people standing around on a crowded side street being herded like cattle. Doesnt sound like good time to me.
