Plan a Picnic
Stock up on provisions, find yourself a picnic blanket, and take advantage of New Orleans' many stretches of green. Hit up Johnny's Po' Boys in the Quarter for fried oysters, meatballs, or even hamburger meat on Leidenheimer French bread and grab a bench in Jackson Square, or take the streetcar uptown, order two of the famous "Hooks" sandwich (Hooks cheddar, turkey, avocado, basil, and tomato on ciabatta) at St. James Cheese Company, and enjoy a leisurely lunch in Audubon Park. For a true N'awlins experience, pick up crawfish, potatoes, corn, and sausage from KJean’s, and head to City Park for your own private crawfish boil.
