    So I'm in New Orleans for a few days on business and Mardi Gras is kicking off this weekend...

    I had dinner then took a stroll down Bourbon Street. As you can imagine, boobs for beads is in full swing...

    So these guys are all up on a balcony with beads galore trying to talk this girl in to flashing. She pulls her shirt up but only shows her bra. Most start booing but one guy yells out: "Oh come on honey... how about a stimulus package"... :D

    No she decided to make them work for it and cut any stimulus offerings...

    Besides, bead value is way down these days...

    I think it plummeted because of the uncool factor just after the 2001 or so.

    Thoughts on Mardi Gras...

    Much more tame than it used to be... boobs for beads ain't what it used to be...

    I never understood the beads deal. During the Parades they throw these beads and the nice one you use to get women to take off their tops. Now you can also go into one of the thrift shops and buy some beads for a 1.00 but if I offered a 1.00 for a woman to take off her top she would slap me in the face but offer some 1.00 beads and off it goes. :laugh2:

    This weekend will be a madhouse as always. The 1st 2-3 week run-up to Fat Tuesday are always pretty hit-n-miss crowd-wise.


    The Uptown parades during the weeknights are the best to attend and you can generally find a good spot to get close to the floats w/o having to fight for position.


    When I was stationed in N.O., I lived in Metairie, 5 blocks off of Veterans Blvd @ Clearview. We could literally walk to the starting point of the parades at Clearview Mall and catch 1-2 parades a night.


    Just an FYI. For a great place for "local" seafood, drive out 10 mins to Deanie's in Bucktown. Get the BBQ Shrimp, you'll thank me later!!!
