Enjoy the Art, Music and have a drink as you explore the museum. Great views of the city from the roof top veranda. Very Fun!!!!”

Bar

“Don't look at the bar tab as entertainment, look at it as an investment in your education. This is an immensely popular after-work bar full of regular characters networking and being seen but you're not there for that. No, you my friend, you go in the middle of the afternoon, sit at the bar, and tell the bartender you want a custom flight. It doesn't matter if this is your first or ten thousandth glass of the stuff - they're going to teach you something and you'll come away with a new favorite bottle. I recommend getting the Brenne for the first pour - both because I love it and because I think it shows the bartender that you want the weird stuff.”

Cajun / Creole Restaurant
$$
“The Ruby Slipper Cafe was founded in May 2008, after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Mid-City, New Orleans neighborhood. In recovery from that life-changing storm, husband & wife - Erich & Jennifer found an opportunity to turn a blighted corner store into a vibrant gathering place where neighbors could enjoy excellent Breakfast, Lunch & Brunch fare in a casual and inviting atmosphere. Great southern style breakfast with a local flare and maybe the best ever "bacon" bloody marry's.”
