We always park in a parking garage in between Loyola and Rampart off of Poydras right before you get to Girod. New Orleans Street Map and Driving Directions | State of Louisiana
Before the road construction on Loyola for the new streetcar tracks we use to exit Loyola right before the bridge but now we take the Poydras exit off of I-10 and then turn right on S. Rampart. There are cheaper places to park it is $30 for parking but your car is safe and in a covered garage with NOPD security. There are a couple of outdoor bars set up plus indoors at Allegros and there is a DJ cranking music. There is a alleyway between the parking garage and office building that Allegros is in where all this is set up and we usually stand by the S.Rampart street side by the oak trees with a cooler. Come grab a beer with us. Can't miss us. I'm 6'1" 280 lbs wearing #98 Ellis jersey smoking a cigar and Budweiser in hand with a my 6'1 blonde haired wife. She really sticks out in the crowd. Come get a beer than you can walk over and check out Champions square if you never saw it or go see Bobby and Deke braoadcast their show by the dome. I also believe Ricky Jackson and Vaughan Johnson will be at the Saints HOF museum between 5-7 by gate B if you want to see them.

The map didn't stay zoomed in on the location so just zoom in on Poydras and S.Rampart and you'll see the area.

Thanks Budsdrinker. That looks like a good spot. Easy to get to. Probably a ***** to get out of though. LOL I'll be driving to down Baton Rouge Friday night and spending the night there. Couldn't afford a hotel in New Orleans. But I'll leave Baton Rouge about 7:00 Saturday morning and get into the city early, hopefully before the CRAZY traffic starts, get parked, and take it easy the rest of the day.

I'll be easy to spot. I'll be the guy with the Drew Brees Superbowl Jersey and the black Saints hat on. LOL

Thanks for the help. I'm sure I will need more as the game gets closer. Ohhhh Maaaan I can't wait!

funny you would say that, Hulka.

There is nothing harder than finding someone in New Orleans. We're all
wearing the same thing, pretty much... "Oh yeah... im the guy in the Saints Jersey, and my wifes wearing a shiny gold outfit." Could be one of 500,000 people....lol.

thats said, we'll be there, and I'll be having a beer with Budsdrinker & wife & compadres.

Apologies to those of you I missed meeting this weekend. Halo lives way farther than I had a concept of, and the St. Charles car is slower than I imagined also, so I missed the tailgater. This was the only disappointment of the weekend, but we'll get together for the NFC Championship.

It was an outstanding weekend in New Orleans, short for me, as all our trips are flying trips, but saw some sights.
