Talk to me about New Orleans

My FIL has a friend who owns a house in New Orleans near Bourbon Street. Next March, he's going to be in Austrailia for a month, and offered several people each their pick of a week to house sit. My FIL took the week of St. Patricks Day (March 12-20th, actually- slightly more than a week).

He also told FIL he was free to invite 1-2 people to stay with him if he wanted. So, FIL is offering to fly DH and I down (we live up in Michigan, FIL is in Florida), and cover food costs.

FIL and I are museum & history fans. DH would prefer a "Weed wacker to the eye over a day in a museum", but is willing to go along with us.

I've never been to New Orleans. Talk to me about the must do stuff, and the skip it stuff.

I'd rather avoid her kind of places. Not sure that stink washes off.

Fantastic food; Commander's Palace amongst others.  Jazz.  Voodoo. Booze that you can drink on the streets. Paddle steamer rides on the Mississippi.  Also in March, you might be there for Mardi Gras.
