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.

Pre-Katrina, pre-2000s New Orleans culture comes to life in this parody of the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas.” Sadly, practically everything in this video is gone or changed drastically. Most of the businesses, if I’m not mistaken, had disappeared or were sold before my family even moved out of Louisiana in 2000.
Sorry for the mediocre audio/video quality, but the tape is well past its prime as its last recorded program—this sketch—was recorded no later than December 1995 or ’96.
The only thing missing from this is the few opening words—”On the first day of Christmas, my mawmaw gave to me a crawfish they caught…”—but I think the video makes up for it with a nice little surprise at the end.

recipe and some good side dishes
Ready in: 30-60 minutes
Difficulty: 3 (1=easiest :: hardest=5)
1 Chicken cut up
1 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast
1 cup Jim Beam Bourbon whiskey
1/2 cup Dark brown sugar
1 cup Ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup White vinegar
1 tablespoon Fresh lemon juice
3 Cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Dry mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Though this dish is said to be NOT Cajun, It has become associated with Cajun and I see it on several good Cajun sites.
Combine Bourbon, sugar, ketchup, sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Chicken can be marinated for a few hours in the sauce, but it is not mandatory.
If you BBQ the chicken, baste it with the sauce …when it is turned be sure and serve some for dipping.
If you are pan-fry the chicken , brown the chicken then pour the sauce into the pan and simmer for 5 minutes till sauce thickens. Serve with rice or pasta.

Seeking Attractive Spunkey Women born in New Orleans between ages of 20 and 50
FROM PRODUCER VELEKA GRAY
I’m developing a project for women born in New Orleans who are between the ages of 20 and 50 who are from different parts of the city and can demonstrate the cultural background of their neighborhood in attire, accent, personal style, politics, opinion, etc.
I’m seeking attractive, outgoing, spunky women who have interesting occupations and close ties to the city and their families. They must be from New Orleans.
If you think you qualify (or if you know someone who might), please send me a picture and résumé / bio / curriculum vitae and a description of why you believe you are a good representative of your part of the city. email@example.com
Please post this anywhere you think might attract the type of charming New Orleans belle I’m looking for.
PS: (I already have someone from the 7th Ward.)
Mardi Gras 2011
Four of my friends booked a hotel in New Orleans for Mardi Gras this year (not sure which one though). I want to go, but I don’t have a place to stay. They said I could stay with them. How strict are New Orleans hotels during Mardi Gras about this?
that depends on the hotel.
for example some hotels give out arm bands that allow guests to easily go in and out of the hotel all day and keep out the people that just need to pee.
if your staying at a cheap place probably not a problem.
find out how much it would cost to add a roll a bed to your room or if they even allow that.
Mardi Gras 2011 is going to be a big one with warm weather and near spring break.
