New Orleans: Help prioritize sightseeing edition

I am taking my partner on a surprise trip to New Orleans for his birthday March 5-7. Neither of us have been, and he doesn't yet know our final destination, and I am super bad at finding places and deciding where to go. Need hive mind's input into what we should do! [more inside]

NOLA Restaurants for 10-17 Academics in CBD or FQ?

We'll be flying in for a conference on Memorial Day, and we need to find 2 dinner venues, one for 17 & one for 10 people. I was thinking Antoines (I'm a tourist so I love the back rooms and the idea of our project name on a Baked Alaska), but their cheapest prix fixe is well over the limit for our university ($59). Our conference is next to the Superdome, so I’m looking in the French Quarter/CBD within walking distance. Thanks for any suggestions!

Changing small amounts of foreign currency in NYC?

I have accumulated a lot of random currency from my travels. The greatest amount I have is about 400 Chinese yuan. That's about $50. The least I have is about 110 Mexican pesos. That's about $6. I don’t expect to go to any of these countries soon. [more inside]

How long to connect flights at Logan International?

On the return leg of our American incursion, we'll be flying in from Florida and connect to our international flight with Delta. Currently JetBlue arriving 3 1/2 hours before our international flight departs is looking like the best option. Is that enough time to get our luggage in Jetblue (Terminal C) and then get through to Delta (Terminal A) check in and clear security?

Visiting Santa Monica March 1-3

I've always wanted to visit Santa Monica. I imagine good music and kids skateboarding into a palm-tree-specked sunset. I imagine drinking beers and listening to live music on open patios near the ocean. That's how it is right? What should I do to experience Santa Monica for a day without shattering my romantic notions of it?

Is there stuff to do in west Texas (if you're not utterly outdoorsy)?

My boyfriend and I are planning a trip for the summer and one possibility that I'm weirdly into is going to west Texas, which I am given to understand is not everyone's dream vacation spot! I've only been through on the train but I love the landscape and I love Texas. What I'm trying to figure out now is whether there's enough to do around there to make it a worthwhile trip.

Which side of the street (in Seattle) is North?

Seattle residents: in Belltown (and to a lesser extent downtown), the streets head from SW to NE and the avenues from NW to SE. Do people think of the streets as running east/west and the avenues as running north/south, as they do elsewhere? So for instance if I said, "the Northeast corner of 3rd and Vine", would most people understand which corner I was talking about? Thanks in advance!

Traveling to Palm Springs with a toddler

Spring break is coming up in March and I'm craving a vacation where I can sit by a pool and relax. Sadly, I'm going to be 6 months pregnant at that point and most places I'd like to visit are off-limits due to Zika. A friend of mine suggested that I look at Palm Springs and it looks like it could be an option - but I'm a bit overwhelmed and need recommendations and advice for where to stay and what to do.
