Lol. New Orleans is the only place I've been where the police told me to get out of a neighborhood I was walking in because I was white.

I was living in Norwalk CT for an internship around 2000. Never had been to NYC before, and totally unfamiliar with the subway system. Popped up in Harlem, walked about 2 blocks and was approached by two cops. First thing they asked is if I was lost, and 2nd....did I want to know how to get out of there.

I love New Orleans, it is at the top of the list of places I plan to drink myself to death when my wife eventually leaves me.
 
Here are my top highlights:
 
Fried chicken at Willie Mae's. https://www.williemaesnola.com/menu/
This, honestly the best fried chicken I have ever had.
 
Just outside the Quarter in the Marigny is Frenchmen Street. This is where the locals go to hear great Jazz music. Most of the bars have no cover charge, the drinks are not overpriced like Bourbon St and the bands are phenomenal.
 
Another great spot for Jazz is Preservation Hall. The place is tiny, most of the time it is standing room only. They do not serve drinks or food and they have no bathroom. What they do have is some of the most talented Jazz musicians you will ever see.
 
The Haunted History Tour of the Quarter top notch. It is more historical than scary and a great way to learn the layout of the Quarter.
 
The Empire Bar at Broussard's does Traditional Absinthe Service in the afternoons from 5 to 7pm (this place also does a great Ramos Gin Fizz)
Drink a Ramos Gin Fizz at the Roosevelt Hotel Bar
Drink a Pimms Cups at the Napolean House.
Drink a Vieaux Carre at the Carousel Bar (in the Hotel Monteleone)
Drink a Hurricane at Pat O'Brien next to the flaming fountain.
Drink a Hand Grenade at the Tropical Isle.
 
Once you drink all of that and you realize it is almost 3am, head over the Verti Mart and grab a breakfast po boy to go. (pro-tip, they only take cash.)
 
Also if you have the time the New Orleans School of Cooking is a must. The day I was there they taught us to make Gumbo, Jambalaya, Bread Pudding and Pralines. They gave us a history lesson on the dishes and then you get to eat what they cooked for lunch with an Abita beer all for approx $30. It was like hanging out in grandma's kitchen learning her secrets.
