Does anyone have any advice on hearing a great Zydeco band? We will be arriving Aug 4 and leaving on that Thursday, so Rock 'n' bowl is not looking like the best option. (I'm pretty upset about that!) I'm mainly looking for somewhere close to the French quarter.
I'm not opposed to traveling a bit outside the quarter. But, I don't want to get too far away. I'm not really wanting to get so far away that a cab is necessary, walking, pedicab, or streetcar would be ideal. (We are in very good shape, so walking a bit is not an issue, but don't want to walk somewhere too sketchy!)
Honestly, Mulates sounds kinda fun, but I'm not willing to waste a meal in NOLA on what appears to be mediocre fried food.
