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.

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.

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.

I need to find the cheapest deal ever, where can I find it, leaving in the morning of the 6th, departing in the morning of the 8th, where can i find a cheap deal?
That is the first weekend of Mardi Gras parades, so "cheapest deal ever" probably isn’t realistic.
