LUNCH - Founded by Frank Manale in 1913, this seafood-centric family friendly eatery is beloved and with good reason. Pascal's Manale is known for fabulous value and copious portions of fresh New Orleans-style Creole Italian dishes, homestyle specialties (liver and onions anyone?) and dishes like the swoon-worthy barbecue shrimp swimming in a buttery Worcestershire-spiked sauce, a recipe that hasn't changed since 1954. If it's on special at lunch, order the combination pan roast, a seasoned blend of puréed shrimp, oysters, and crab baked with bread crumbs on top, a creamy casserole that makes an incredibly tasty dip with French bread. The raw oysters are always a good idea.

Generations come and go, but Galatoire's, with its classic seafood-centric menu focused on in-season fish and shellfish treated to artful preparations like trout meuniere, shrimp remoulade and oysters Rockefeller. Not only can your order well known local fish like drum, redfish and pompano, you can also get the sweet goodness of sheepshead and lemon fish if the waters are right. This French Creole palace is a definitive New Orleans experience, but remember, gents need a jacket after dark.
SEAFOOD - The Mid-City Yacht Club is the ultimate neighborhood bar and come Fridays starting at 4pm during the season, around 320 mudbugs go into the boil. Order a heaping plate of crawfish for $6 with plenty of fixings on the side. There is a wide selection of beers on tap on in the can, ideal pairing with these spicy bites. If there's a game being played, it's on the flat screens and the crowd is always friendly. There's not yacht in sight, by the way, although for a brief time this place was waterfront property after Hurricane Katrina. Look up neighborhood bar in the dictionary, and chances are Mid-City Yacht Club will be there

WATCH THE GAME -Tracey's was the original bar in the Irish Channel, opened in 1949 with new fangled comforts like air conditioning - a rarity back in the day. Also the first in the 'hood with color TV, Tracey's drew local crowds from the start. Its current location is on Magazine Street, and although it had been shuttered for some time, Jeffery Carreras reopened in 2010, bringing his famous recipe for roast beef po'boys to the bar along with a great beer list. Potent drink specials and 20 TVs tuned to the game makes Tracey's a top stop for visitors wanting to catch their home team while on the road for business or pleasure.

WATCH THE GAME -Open damn near 24 hours. That's what's on the tired looking awning outside of Chuck's Sports Bar, a solid dive bar located on a quiet street less than a mile from the Superdome. Cheap, strong drinks, a mostly local clientele, including plenty of bartenders late night makes Chuck's a gritty gem. There's a pool table and a digital jukebox, but don't come hungry. No chow is served but you are welcome to bring something in if you like. You won't confuse this place for the Polo Lounge at the five-star Windsor Court Hotel two blocks away, but Chuck's is a keeper.

DANCE - This chill venue situated on the Canal Street streetcar line is a locals' fave thanks to its eclectic line up, great food and grown up vibe. Expect an older crowd of mostly locals since not too many tourists find their way to this friendly club, even though it's not hard to find. If you're lucky, award winning UK blues pianist Jon Cleary, who lives in the neighborhood, will be playing his regular Tuesday gig. Showtimes are generally on the earlier side than you'll find elsewhere, and often there's one artist early on and another at 10 or 11 pm. There's a pop up restaurant that dishes up some serious barbecue if you're hungry.

WINE - MUSIC - BEER - FOOD MONDAYS ARE BEST Bacchanal isn't like any other spot in town. Definitely off the beaten path, Bacchanal is a hybrid hang out that attracts artists, foodies and locals to chill, graze and listen to live music on the edge of the Bywater.

And of course, befitting its namesake, Bacchanal serves a decadent selection of wines by the glass or bottle. There's also a wine store up front if you need to stock up. On a sunny weekend day, there's no better hang in town.
