with watering holes fueled by classic New Orleans cocktails (300-year-old Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar ranks high for atmosphere)." Oh yes, how every lady wants to be wooed – in an unlit, loud bar drinking a nice, frozen "purple drink." No need to stay sober, hear what each other is saying, or even see each other's faces on this lovely date, because you will have a heck of a hangover to keep you thinking about that person the next day.
But on the bright side, he won't see that awful face you make when you get a brain freeze from your "purple drink." Lie #4: "Indulge in neighborhood cafés (hit Café du Monde for café au lait and beignets for two)." No one has ever accused Café du Monde of being a neighborhood café, or romantic for that matter.

Kick back and enjoy some drinks and good times with that special someone on the New Orleans Original Cocktail Walking Tour.
This tour will take you to some of the best bars and restaurants in the French Quarter of New Orleans where you can sample drinks created in New Orleans like Southern Comfort, the Hurricane, and the Hand Grenade.
Because one thing is for sure: Only if you've been here can you really understand how precious and distinctive our city is.
So, while I may not be getting a carriage ride, "purple drink," or a marriage proposal on my wrought-iron balcony this Valentine's Day, I am proud to call New Orleans my valentine.
