Fat Tuesday Bourbon Street New Orleans LA 2010
Duration : 0:1:52
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.

The lyrics to Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting.
This is what Sting has to say in his lyrics book:
“Anne Rice’s ‘Interview with the Vampire’ was the direct inspiration for this song, but there was a moonlit night in the French Quarter of New Orleans where I had the distinct impression that I was being followed” (Sting 111).
