In all my midterm stress, I forgot to crowdsource ideas for what to do in The Big Easy! I'm leaving Saturday, coming back Tuesday afternoon, so I'll have 3 nights and two full days. I'm going with a pretty big group, which will be fun.... but also hard to plan. So I want to have an idea of my priorities to make sure I get to do something meaningful for me!

So, GTers, with limited time, what must one see in New Orleans?? I'm particularly interested in the French influence on the city, but open to anything really!
