My friend is getting married at the end of December and my friends and I decided to surprise her with a trip to New Orleans. My friend works at Starwood so I've booked a hotel at The W for an employee price. That being said...my friends and I are all in our last year of college and are collectively broke. I assume that most of our money will go to food and alcohol...so this is where I need some advice.
We should be eating a total of 5 meals- Friday night dinner, Saturday breakfast/lunch/dinner, and Sunday brunch (which will probably be Cafe De Monde) I'm hoping to spend about $150-200 (solely on food) a person for the weekend...if it's doable! I would also like to eat at least one nice meal, but I can also do without.
I've looked online for a few hours but I don't feel like I've gotten anywhere. I'm trying to stay away from places like Redfish Grill- I would rather do something more local. Also- we do have a car. We weren't really planning on driving a whole lot, but if you think something is worth driving out to we'll definitely check it out.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!Edited: 7:47 pm, December 02, 2013
