Super Bowl roll call....who's going to New Orleans?

I'm waiting for my tickets confirmation to come through. Flights from SF->MSY are extremely expensive and there are no hotels available in the area. Might be worthwhile financially to fly into anther nearby city and drive to the Superdome.
Um... Should we organize a tailgate party?
My wife, myself, and some friends will definitely be there.

Going for the post season hat trick.... still recovering from screaming at the Georgia Dome
Will definitely be there.

Some recommendations for flights and rooms:
- Check alternate lodging websites like www.airbnb.com or www.vrbo.com
- try flying into near by cities instead of new orleans directly
No one would want to sit next to me because I would be b***hing non-stop...
What the f**k are they doing now? Why is everyone milling around on the field? Who called a timeout?

Regular season games are bad enough in person, the Superbowl would be even more maddening with all the long breaks.


It would be cool to go to one I suppose just to say I did it.
I'm going for sure, but haven't finalized our itinerary. Thanks to those posting advice.
Got my ticket for $2700 charges include on nflticketexchange section 639 row 21 way up and behind the niners bench (cheapest was $2100)

awesome dude!!!

i'm holding out hope prices drop a little more... If it gets down to $1500 I might consider booking a last minute flight to NOLA... odds are slim though.
Really wish I could afford it but I have some big expense coming up this year. For those who are going I hope you have a blast!
I live an hour away so I may go to city but can't afford the game.

For those coming to New Orleans for the 1st time, prepare your liver because you will be drunk the entire time. Avoid areas that look suspicious, crime is really bad but don't let it worry you just watch yourself.

This time of year in New Orleans is the funniest. Mardi Gras will be in full swing so try and catch some parades.
Anyone who says yes, I envy you
Is anyone planning a 49er tailgate party???? I live 3 hours away and would love to watch with other 49er fans.
hey everyone. first time posting here.

I live in Denver, but I'm originally from Mobile, AL. If the hotels are full in NO, I'd recommend staying in Mobile, Biloxi, Baton Rouge, or Hammond. Mobile is the farthest, and it's only a 2 hour drive. I lived in Hammond for a year; it is the most isolated/boring, but there are a few hotels and it's the closest.

This ...
Saw an advert last night about this website and service for last minute bookings.
Might be worth giving them a check-out ?
