What should I do in New Orleans while at BbWorld 2017?

Blog Post created by smachaje on Jun 29, 2017

All right, let's talk about New Orleans.  First, when you get there make sure to attend the conference, a bit.  A few selfies on the vendor floor, make sure to take pictures of crowds in the hallway, and off you go.  Here is your main list:

 

1. Eat

2. Walk around

3. Let someone guide you

 

I'd love to see some restaurant and hole in the wall suggestions in the comments.  My recommendation, via Lisa - the best sales rep ever, would be:

 

     1. Annunciation Restaurant: annunciationrestaurant.com

     2. Emeril's Restaurant: emerilsrestaurants.com/emerils-new-orleans

     3. Cafe Adelaide: cafeadelaide.com

     4. Mulates: mulates.com

 

If you're not hungry here is a list of 10 essential French Quarter bars:

Once you're done with walking around, try being guided by someone.  This is a great idea, because local people can put a story to the buildings, the food, the graves ... I think some of the cemetery tours, swamp tours, and French Quarter Jazz walking tours look awesome.  You can book through Expedia:

Finally, if you're not into any of the above, you can rent a car for about $100 a day on Expedia and drive to Empire, LA.  Do it your way, just like in a horror movie.

In conclusion, if my boss is reading this post, I'm just kidding!  Otherwise, I'll see you there.
