New Orleans meetup? October 7, 2008 7:09 PM   Subscribe

New Orleans meetup? Hubby and I will be in the Big Easy from Oct 17 - 19 and we'd like to buy y'all that beer I promised.

We'll be at the Astor Crown Plaza Hotel, 739 Canal Street, and we won't have a car so can you recommend a good venue within walking distance? Dinner before beer would be good too.

How about sauntering over to Preservation Hall afterward? Doors open at 8 and there are shows every night. I dearly love that crowded, funky place and I'm seriously jonesing for some Dixieland jazz, so how about shoehorning ourselves in for a concert?

Other suggestions welcome too, of course. We hope to meet you in the Crescent City!

Unfortunately, I'm on call that weekend. But if my sad business requires me to go down to the city, I'll try to look y'all up. Have a great weekend! If I can make any suggestions, let me know.

Quietgal is going offline and requested this be closed since she was likely to miss any plans made, so this is me doing that.
