My husband and I are going to New Orleans on Sat. and will be there for the Saint's game on Monday night. Where is a fun place with good food to wach the game? We will be staying in the French Quater and do not mind walking. Thanks

    Maybe the Three Legged Dog on the corner of Conti and Burgundy. They will have the game projected on a big screen, they serve perfectly passable bar food, and it's a nice small place. A potential con is that they are renovating a little and have only one bathroom right now, but it's clean.

      The Dome. They're not cheap, but if you go 1-2 hours before kickoff you'll be able to buy seats from citizens with extras. Of course the scalpers will be there too. Food is lousy but you can't beat the excitement. If that's not an option, try the Mojo Lounge ...pretty good food/tv next door to Fiorellas (bar is on the corner) of Decatur (across from Angelli).

        BTW, Cowboy Mouth will be pre-game entertainment outside the dome.

        If you do not mind going uptown, go to Cooter Browns - good bar food and great beer selection.

          There's a scuzzy looking (and I mean that as a compliment!) sports bar on Gravier that I walk by a lot. Anyone know the name? Chucks, perhaps? Is it a good place to watch a game?

            It's almost directly across from the Lucky Dog den. I think it is called Chuck's. I walk past there a lot but have never been in (because it's during working hours). There's a sign painted on the outside of the doorway that says Free Beer Tomorrow.

            I watch the games either at the Dome or the Rendezvous in the Garden District. But I hear a lot of people go to Gordon Biersch, across Poydras from Harrah's.

              The Rendezvous also offers a free (but limited) buffet of Indian food from Nirvana, at least for the Sunday games. Monday, eh, you're probably out of luck on that front.

              Ditcharo's (on Baronne, maybe?) sets up a big projection screen, or at least they have in the past.

                  Check today's NOLA.com. Scroll down, on the left is a bar guide with some pretty good options.

                      Finn McCools in Mid-City! They have a great crew there for every Saints game and free food (and lots of it) to boot. This weeks food theme is Thanksgiving (duh) so they will have Fried Turkey, mashed potatoes and fixins I believe. Plus whoever wants to can bring in side dishes, so there will be plenty. The crowd is always ultra-partisan and they have beer bucket specials as well as some other drink specials I believe. The game is on a projector screen plus several more HD screens throughout the pub. Plus Sally, one of the bartenders, was voted best in New Orleans by the readers of Where Y'at? magazine. (Though admittedly the ownership campaigned hard for her to the loyal pub community so the voting may have been skewed.)
                      Lastly, the Saints have a commercial running right now that was filmed outside the pub with people from inside the pub giving their thoughts on being Saints fans. That's gotta count for somethin' right?

                      Edit: This pub is in Mid-City, so getting there would require a streetcar or taxi ride.
