I'm going to New Orleans next week for a conference. What do I need to know?

I'm staying at the Roosevelt (anyone been there?) in the Central Business District so I'm not going to be too far from the French Quarter. I won't have much time for sight-seeing and most of my free time is during the day. If there's one (or two things) that I shouldn't miss, what are they?
My friend may be renting a car, but if not, I'll probably be walking anywhere I go. I'm pretty much getting my fill of live jazz for the week, so I'm not really looking for concerts. Are there any great restaurants or cafes nearby? How about cool local shops?
Bonus question: The weather predicts to be in the mid 60s. This sounds wonderful, but since it's so close to the gulf, is it a wet/cold mid 60s? Should I stick to long sleeves and bring a coat, or is a jacket okay?
