Are these girls on Bourbon Street just really drunk or just tourists? or Both?
Well the answer to your question is both. The female tourists get drunk before the parade on Bourbon Street starts and then a float rider either persuades the girl to flash for some beads she wants or she just flashes for fun. Its usually only tourists on Bourbon Street though because people from here are used to getting beads and they probably have garbage bags full of beads at home, the other reason girls from here don’t flash is because they know they’ll get arrested if it is not Mardi Gras.

Born in Portland, Oregon and raised in Corvallis, Oregon, he spent two years of his childhood growing up in Italy.

He plays a Martin Committee Handcraft trumpet made in 1940, and uses a 3 silver plated mouthpiece from Bach made in 1926, having recently retired his 1920 3C Bach mouthpiece. He counts Miles Davis among his most significant influences.
Botti attended Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon where he studied under Larry McVey whose renowned jazz program had come to be a regular stop for Stan Kenton and Mel Tormé when they were looking for new players. It was here he played alongside his friend, trombonist and future Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Todd Field.
After leaving Mount Hood, Botti studied under David Baker and Bill Adam at Indiana University.

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!
The Bourbon Orleans has the 2 story suites. Its a very nice place to stay.
