Do the strippers take off their bottoms during a lap dance on bourbon street in New Orleans? Not VIP?

Barely Legal mostly.

no

strip clubs are pretty tame compared to most places.

they often will go down to a tiny g string.


Going to New Orleans to watch my Saints. Gonna watchit it 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.

Check travel sites like Expedia & Orbitz and also check: www.frenchquarterhotels.com

You may also want to talk to a real travel agency wherever you live.

Good luck!

Bourbon Street (Rue Bourbon)

This video is a tribute to the late great Mike Reynolds, the piano accordion showman extraordinaire for Planete Folle Band from 1993 to 2008. May your music live on in our memories, Mike! Bourbon Street is a tribute to the famous party street in New Orleans. It has three verses in English and three verses in French that say the same things about the music, dance, romance, and the unique cuisine of New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou. It was written in 1993, a year after Vic Sadot travelled to New Orleans and the Acadiana region along the Gulf Coast. The song was released in 1997 by Vic Sadot’s Planete Folle Band on a CD titled “Comin’ Home”. Mike Reynolds plays the joyful accordion. Earle Brown plays the soaring saxophone, and Dennis Hertzog plays the dancing fiddle. Dave Sumner provides the hot sauce for the recipe with his sizzling guitar. The legendary Chris Sherlock is on playing his signature drums. That steady rocking bass is Monty Cullum. Allons danser! (Let’s go dance!) Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!) Many of our Cajun/Zydeco heroes appear in this video from Louisiana and the San Francisco Bay Area. Alan OBrien is the 2008 bass player helping the young boy learn to play the scrub board. I had no photo of Earle Brown. My apology to you wherever you are. Earle played briefly for Planete Folle while visiting his mother in Wilmington, DE. Last we heard was that he went back to New Orleans and was with a hot travelling band. Thats another Planete Folle sax player named Fulani Davis in a photo from July 4, 2000. This video is dedicated to our buddy and band-mate Michael Reynolds of Blackwood, New Jersey with best wishes and fond memories to his wife Eileen and his sons Mike and Kevin. Mike’s sister Jane is taking the lead in preserving Mikes music and photographic memorabilia. Contact Vic at broadsideballadeer@gmail if you have anything to contribute to preserving the music and memory of our friend Mike. We love you, Mike! Keep on rockin’ in the spirit world!

Is Bourbon street the same as Canal street?

My family and I are going on a weekend trip to New Orleans and I am confused if Canal street is referring to Bourbon street. Is it the same?

not at all

Canal street is huge street with 3 lanes on each side and the street car in the middle, it has many shops, hotels and stores on both sides.

Bourbon street is a small but famous street because of all of the bars and strip clubs that have made it famous, at night portions of it are closed to vehicular traffic (no cars) and people stroll up and down it all night creating a parade of characters including tourists and locals that has to be seen to be explained. you can carry and drink alcohol while you walk as long as it’s not in a glass container.

I’d avoid the overpriced t shirt shops and strip clubs but you can find some good music and fun if you know where to look
