wife and I are making out first trip to NOLA. 3 nights; just a short trip. mainly interested in drinking, and eating. maybe some light shopping (local art, independent stores, late AM coffee, live music or cool jukeboxes, etc)
I am sure we will check out the Quarter for a bit, but enjoy just finding cool local neighborhoods when we travel, and go local for a day or two. mingle with friendly locals.
Marigny sounds like it fits the bill. late 30's early 40's if it makes a difference. is this neighborhood a fit? anywhere else we should look? I like the sounds of it location...10 minutes to the Quarter if we want that, but also close to Frenchmans area etc that sounds more our speed.
good food in the neighborhood? any advice is appreciated. cheers
