Lowdown on Bourbon Street
On Bourbon Street in the French Quarter, it's Fat Tuesday every day of the week. Don't be shy. Order a hurricane from Pat O'Brien's
in a "go-cup"(it's legal to drink on the streets in New Orleans), put on your beads and take a stroll down New Orleans' most famous party street. Take your chances riding a mechanical bull or whale (yes, seriously), take in a sexy burlesque performance or jam to the sounds of traditional jazz. Whatever your preference, Bourbon offers something for everyone. Heck, just walking this legendary street is bound to create a night to remember.
