Address: United Saints Recovery Project - 2309 Dryades St., New Orleans 70113
I will be there by 3pm on Friday.
Jennifer's number: [masked]
French Quarter, Garden District, Audubon Park, Audubon Aquarium, Ferry, Harrah's Casino, City Park, Plantations, and Cemeteries, oh my!
Oh!!! I forgot, Bourbon Street, strong Hurricanes at Pat O'briens, beignets at Cafe du Monde, Alligator kabobs, the original Muffalletta, and the Endymion Parade! Woo-hoo!!!
There is a Megabus option, but we'll be able to do a little more if we carpool. who's in???!!! :-) We will be staying in a dorm near the Lower Garden district just minutes from the French Quarter and 3 blocks from the St. Charles street car line The $50 covers 3 nights in this dorm. Even if you are not staying all 3 nights, you will still pay the $50 to keep things simple. More details will be posted in the comments below.
We will not be attending Fat Tuesday since most of us have to work, but we will enjoy all of the festivities leading up to it including Bourbon Street and some Parades. Yay Endymion!!! We will also be doing some things like our traditional initial stop by Harrah's Casino where we all put $1 in a slot machine and play it out before starting our adventure. Last year I won $2.15!!! Woohoo! We will do a ton of exploring and riding the streetcars through the various districts. We will see the beautiful Audubon park where tons of migrating birds spend the winter, we will enjoy beignets at the famous Cafe Du Monde, visit the Audubon aquarium, ride the free ferry across the Mississippi, visit the French Market, visit the St. Louis Cathedral (if you are spiritual you can pray where Pope John Paul II has prayed), and much more!! If you are attending and want to make it a point to see something, please let me know.
