WWLanD... if she were planning a night out for a date

i guess because i'm a hopeless romantic, i like to conjure up some ideas for dates-- something fun, something different, something romantic... just something. here are a couple of ideas i've come up with:

Date senario #1:
  • martin wine cellar to pick out a bottle of wine
  • baru for dinner (they do not serve alcohol, but they do have a corking fee)
  • a walk through the neighborhood
  • desert/pastry/gelato shop

Date senario #2
  • dinner at a any restaurant in the french quarter
  • some type of tour- the haunted ghost tour, the carriage tour...
  • cafe du monde for dessert/beignets
  • a walk along the moon walk

Date senario #3
  • this would be great for a Tuesday
  • dinner/tapas at Rambla
  • free salsa lessons at Le Phare (and a drink or 2)
  • night topper at Loa
  • all a block from one another
Date senario #4
  • the street car date
  • this is can be done any time of the day-- just be weary of what part of town you are in
  • start at one end of the street car line
  • your ultimate destination is at other end of the street car line or a previously choosen destination like a spiffy restaurant or the like
  • take your time and get off to enjoy different parts of the street car line (quick bite to eat, shopping, drink, a 
  • walk... what ever catches your attention)
  • tips:   - open alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the street car (stop at bars for a drink)
             - take a ride up and down the street car line just to get an idea where you will be & where there is to go
             - consider how you will be getting back (taxi, streetcar, etc.)
             - if you are going to shop, remember you have to lug your goodies around with you
