Fun tasty spot for pre Saints' meal

We will be in NO to see the Saints play Monday Night Football on the 30th. Any suggestions on where we should eat/drink before the game? Last time, we ate at Port Of Call, loved it, but would like something different, with similar atmosphere. I know many places are not open on Mondays, so would love some help

    from 3 to 6 pm $.25 oysters and happy hour. they have a great burger as well.

    1. On lines of Port of Call..

      701 Tchoupitoulas St.
      New Orleans, LA 70130
      (504) 523-8995

      If it's a nice night it's a short walk to the game. Food about the same as Port of Call. More choices for sure.

      Nicer place still not a horrible walk to the dome:

      Gordon Biersch Brewery
      200 Poydras Street
      New Orleans, LA 70130
      phone: 504-552-2739

      Great burger and garlic fries, great beers and a really nice outdoor area if it's still not cold down here. Today it was 80.

      Way nicer:
      Cafe Adelaide inside the Lowes Hotel
      300 Poydras Street
      New Orleans, LA
      Great bar and it's owned by the Brennan's family.

      Port of Call
      838 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70116
