3 Things to Love (besides your husband):
1) The French Quarter -- historic, romantic, and teeming with some of the most famous, landmark New Orleans restaurants ranging from Antoine’s to Galatoire’s to Arnaud’s, and beverages aplenty on the always lively Bourbon Street. Experience the culinary New Orleans from decades past and remember to bring a sports jacket.
2) Po’ Boys, Beignets, Muffalettas -- famous staples for a reason. Be prepared to indulge, some of our favorites at Mother’s, Café du Monde and Felix’s!
3) The People -- Southern genteel culture combined with a rich sense of hospitality and can-do attitude, the neighborly charm and embracing swagger of locals can’t be beat
