Spring Break New Orleans?

My friends and I are going to New Orleans for spring break. We're going the week after mardi gras, but its also the St. Patrick’s day parade/week so we thought there would still be some partying going on.

What are some things we should do, eat, or see while there? We are over 18 but under 21.

I really want to hear some blues and jazz music along with site seeing and a trip to the ninth ward. How can I make these things happen?

Thanks

    IF you are here this weekend go to the irish channel parade uptown. it starts at 1pm. watch it by byblos. Snug Harbor and Preservation Hall let 18yr olds in to watch music. Also tipitinas and house of blues. All these places play jazz music. Snug harbor is also a restaurant it is the best place on frenchmen street.

    My favs:

    The best po boy sandwich is Domilise's a little family owned place outside of the quarter and is cash only.This is a best kept secret. Also since it is Crawfish Season go to Yo Mamas bar and grill and get some boiled crawfish. There is the closest to going to crawfish boil!!

    To make a trip memorable you must stay in the scene of it all, not to miss a beat. A really good location is The Royal Sonesta New Orleans they have it all: food, music and steps away from all New Orleans. For music check out the The Irving Mayfield Playhouse no cover and amazing jazz, food you MUST visit Desire Seafood & Oyster bar it has a cozy vintage feel with mouth-watering seafood. As for the rest of New Orleans and site seeing you should visit the Voodoo Museum, only museum dedicated to voodoo religion. Hope this helps, have a safe trip!
