Though this dish is said to be NOT Cajun, It has become associated with Cajun and I see it on several good Cajun sites.
Combine Bourbon, sugar, ketchup, sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Chicken can be marinated for a few hours in the sauce, but it is not mandatory.
If you BBQ the chicken, baste it with the sauce …when it is turned be sure and serve some for dipping.
If you are pan-fry the chicken , brown the chicken then pour the sauce into the pan and simmer for 5 minutes till sauce thickens. Serve with rice or pasta.

I am going to New Orleans on Memorial Day weekend and staying near Bourbon Street. Which bars (if any) show UFC fights?
Well, I have been to the French Quarter and walked down Bourbon Street many times and while you are there, you might as well sight see every bar on Bourbon Street! They are all nice and listen to the music and tour. I would not go there and just see one bar! You might as well tour them all. They probably all have a tv too watch the game in between the other sights to see. Have a good time!
Why is it that, during Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street they always shout ‘Show your kits’? What are kits?

I am rolling into New Orleans (first time) with my buddies in two weeks, but we are getting there around 2am on a Friday night. How long do we have to drink if we go out on bourbon street around 2:30? I’m just trying to figure out if it’s even worth driving in on a Friday.
The first answer is exactly correct.
This is an incomplete guide to bars & clubs:
For clubs, the bands change so you have to check the listings: Go to www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music.
Note that music clubs often advertise "No Cover", meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with "No Cover" often require that customers buy a beverage (doesn’t have to be alcohol) each for every "set " of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so KNOW THE PRICE before you sit down. Clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking nothing (clubs only make money from the drinks they sell – not from the music). It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it is delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.
About certain alcoholic beverages: Realize that some famous drinks are VERY potent compared with regular cocktails that have only 1 to 1 ½ ounces of alcohol. For example, a Hurricane is basically 3 or 4 ounces of rum in something like red Kool-Aid, and a Hand Grenade has at least 4 ½ ounces of Everclear + rum + vodka mixed with melon liquor. They don’t necessarily taste like an alcoholic beverage and it is easy to over-indulge.
Hope you have a great time!

My friends and I will be going to the Alabama/LSU game and thought we’d spend a night or two in New Orleans. I’ve been there before for Mardis Gras and I know how crazy that can be. I wanted to know what Bourbon Street is like in the off season. Should we bring beads (and yes, we know that’s touristy, but we don’t mind Is it worth it to get a hotel with a balcony overlooking Bourbon?
It won’t be as crazy as Mardi Gras (nothing is) but there should be lots of people in town for the game. The weather in November is also usually nice.
There are only two (2) hotels with balcony rooms overlooking Bourbn Street:
Ramada Inn on Bourbon
Balcony rooms can be fun. They also tend to be noisy (from the crowd on the street all night). If sleep is important don’t get a balcony room. You don’t need beeds and it’s actually against the law to throw them from the balcony to the crowd. Yes, people do it and the police don’t interfere unless it becomes a problem. If hotel security/management or the police tell you to stop then stop.
