I would like to know how much it would be to get a beer or hurricane on bourbon street…
In most bars on Bourbon St., beer is about $5 each. However, if you get an early start, many of them offer Happy Hour until 8pm, where you can get 2 for the price of 1.
The song in this video, Moon Over Bourbon Street, was composed by Sting and Leila Josefowicz. It is from the CD “Violin for Anne Rice.”

Could I carry a decent sized pocket knife while walking up and down bourbon street? Going into bars and shops? Laws down there? Never been there before.
as long as the blade is not longer than 4 inches it’s not a problem.
but wearing it say on your belt, in a holder is not recommended as the policemen/bouncers may ask you to leave it at home or in your car.
so carry it if you want but keep it in your pocket or out of sight.

New Orleans and Bourbon Street in particular is known for having an anything goes attitude. This video illustrates of of the “customs” that are allowed during Mardi Gras season, flashing for beads on Bourbon Street.
Is Flashing for Beads In New Orleans Allowed All Over The City?
While it is thought that “flashing for beads” is allowed all over New Orleans all of the time this is incorrect. It is not a custom or a tradition. Flashing for beads is however allowed during Mardi Gras in the French Quarter and mainly on Bourbon Street. Anywhere else in the city, you run the risk of going to jail.
This means that you can enjoy Mardi Gras with your family in other parts of the city without having to worry that your children will see anything that would be inappropriate.
The main reason for this is the number of people. When Mardi Gras and the weeks leading up to Mardi Gras occur there are huge numbers of people crammed into a very small space. This makes it difficult for police to move and operate. This means that things happen that would not normally happen. Police have to pick their battles. So flashing for beads becomes a victimless crime that is not worth prosecuting.
So if you want to see real Mardi Gras traditions stay off of Bourbon Street. There are plenty of things to see that are exciting and suitable for the entire family. If however seeing women flashing for beads is your thing then head down to Bourbon Street.
Flashing for Mardi Gras Beads has become a controversial custom on Bourbon Street.

Reason i ask; im going in a couple weeks and Im 20. I talked to one of my friends that has been and he said the age limit is 18 only on Bourbon street. True? Or do they just not care as long as your spending money and not causing trouble?
Officially, you have to be 21 to drink anywhere in the country. Unofficially, you ought to be able to get away with it. Don’t be wasted and act stupid wearing Mardi Gras beads (by the way, it’s not Mardi Gras), don’t pee on anything, and you ought to be ok.
