New Orleans Visit

One of my brothers is a Giants fan so my brothers and I plan to make a trip to New Orleans on December 14 to watch the Sunday nighter between the Giants and the Saints. Any suggestions on must see attractions, restaurants, or malls?
None of us have ever been there so any input would help.

Thanks alot fellas. There\'s nothing like getting opinions from people who know New Orleans rather than relying on advertisements.
I\'ve wanted to see New Orleans for so long but it\'s been hard to convince the brothers that it has as much to offer as our other options. Y\'alls posts will help me argue the point.

You have to go to Tipitinas, and either to the Court of Two Sisters or Antiones for dinner or at least have drinks at Tropical Isle. If you are gonna take advice on places to go, make sure they have lived there. No offense to the other people but Mike Andersons and Brennan\'s. I think it\'s like having a Hurricane at the ***** Cat club on Bourbon Street. Not that it\'s not good but go to Pat \"O\"\'s for a real Hurricane if you know what I mean Can\'t fprget about The ACME Oyster House or Andy Capps if you want some New Orleans style music.

Not even the same ballpark. Tipitinas and Court of Two Sisters are good. But none of the aforementioned made steaks or seafood famous. Neither did the restaurants I mentioned. But Pat O\'s made the hurricane famous, and vice versa. ACME? Are you kidding me? they may still have decent sandwiches and oysters, but last time I went there I was overcharged for everything, and on top of that, was made fun of by my friends (who happen to reside in N.O.) for visiting the \"tourist trap\" to begin with. Their words, not mine. What happened to the ACME I knew growing up???
