I always have eaten a ‘Lucky Dog’ on Bourbon Street. I didn’t see any chicken for sale unless you mean a ‘young prostitute’.
In New Orleans it's all about the characters you find all over the city. We take a look at some of the characters patrolling the days before Halloween.

New Orleans New Year Celebration
Here is a press release from 2005, when Arlo Guthrie played a New Year’s Eve gig in New Orleans. New Orleans has always attracted musicians from all over the world.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 30, 2005
Showcasing the soul and spirit of the Crescent City, the Countdown Club presents the 2005 New New Orleans New Year Celebration sponsored by Glazer’s Companies of Louisiana and Pyrotecnico of Louisiana at Jackson Square on Decatur Street, Saturday, December 31, 2005. For information call (985) 630-4604 or log on to www.neworleansonline.com.
Arlo Guthrie & Friends arrived in New Orleans on December 16 to play two benefit concerts at Tipitina’s on the Amtrak City of New Orleans train. Arlo and musical friends had performed benefit concerts along the train’s route starting in Chicago and riding down to New Orleans raising thousands of dollars for small clubs and musicians to get them the “gear” they need get up and running. Arlo’s idea of helping to rebuild the infrastructure of the city’s music scene caught attention and support from across the United States and around the world. Arlo was the first artist to make a hit of Steve Goodman’s song, “City of New Orleans.” The Countdown Club extended an invitation then and there to Arlo to come back for the New Year’s celebration.
Finishing touches are being made to the gumbo pot that will ascend a pole to signal the midnight hour and launch a barrage of fireworks over the Mississippi River for the New New Orleans New Year celebration in the French Quarter. “ I think I can say without a doubt that New Orleans will be the only city in the world to drop a gumbo pot,” says Brian Kern of Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World and Vice President of the Crescent City Countdown Club.
Produced by the Crescent City Countdown Club, festivities will begin at 8 p.m. in traditional New Orleans style with the Coolbone Brass Band, followed by Vivaz from 8:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Arlo Guthrie will take the stage to perform his hit “City of New Orleans” and other favorites at 9:45 p.m. At 10:30 p.m. Louisiana LeRoux will play up to the midnight hour.
All eyes will then be cast to the top of the Jax Brewhouse Condominiums for the gumbo pot drop as a barrage of fireworks blankets the sky over the Mississippi River. Choreographed to music by New Orleans musicians, the exquisite “Symphony in the Sky” will be simulcast live on Magic 101.9 FM and WWL 870 AM and heard in 38 states across the U.S.

Those are done in Jackson Square by many people. Perhaps just ask one of the numerous vendors where they got their permit.

Me and my friends are going to plan a weekend road trip to New Orleans.None of us have ever been to New Orleans. We like to drink and have a good time. We also want to visit Bourbon St. What is the best way to do this? Hotel suggestions? Any transportation to Bourbon St? Taxi prices? Must do or see things?. We are trying to do this as cheep as possible, but any help is appreciated.
I can’t add much to who dat’s answer except I like the Hotel St. Marie. It’s inexpensive (about $60 a night), clean, and it has a pool. It’s like so close to Bourbon St. it’s crazy. I don’t know if they have parking, I never drive there. Their sister hotel is the St. Pierre up the street. Also inexpensive but no pool.

Also, Otis Bazoon on sax, Tim Laughlin on clarinet, Rick Trolsen on trombone, David Boeddinghaus on piano, Bryan Barberot on drums. I forget the bassist’s name. Intro by Ronnie Kole. The opening tune is “Clarinet Marmalade”, with “St. Louis Blues” in the second part. What a way to kick off French Quarter Fest 2009!
