Good stuff JB. Got a cousin that lives down there and had a place on Bourbon street back in the 80's with a balcony. Only thing he said is " you can be dumb, but don't be stupid." What a party, I'd like to go again, But fear I may end in the gutter.

"DON'T come to New Orleans for Carnival unless you have a place to stay."

Whoops...I went in 2001 and I think we had 12 people in one hotel room. I say I think...cause I can't remember everything.

A lot of the "don't" things apply year round.
I've been to New Orleans many times, Carnival 4 times. The last time was 1979 when the cops were on strike and the national guard was in charge.
Always had a good time and have many fond memories of that city. Been in their jail a couple of times too!

Heck, if you can't go just check it out on the live Bourbon cam on the NOLA website!
