Heading to New Orleans with about 5 guys for a small bachelor weekend. We're all in our 30's so we'll probably make it a casually fun weekend, nothing too crazy.

But we all love great seafood.

Looking for recommendations for Friday night dinner (something casual probably), Saturday brunch/lunch, Saturday night dinner (something a bit fancier), and possibly Sunday brunch.

It's been about 10 years since I was in NO, so I'm not sure what's good anymore. Hearing good things about ACME Oyster (we're big oyster fans). But all seafood goes. Any cheap or AYCE oyster deals we should know about?

Also, I hear the Foodfest is in town that weekend which we'll definitely stop by. And does anyone know if there's anywhere to shuck your own oysters? Any other fun/different activities you guys can recommend? Obviously we'll do Bourbon, maybe a Pelicans game, but any other suggestions would be great.

THANKS!
