So, in April I went to New Orleans for my best friend Alicia’s bachelorette party. I’ve already posted my classy travel photos of the trip, so now it’s time for some trashy party photos from Bourbon Street. I have like 6x more on my computer, but I am saving them for various blackmailing opportunities. #chasingthatpaper
I feel like Bourbon Street is super famous, but just in case there is someone out there reading this who isn’t familiar with U.S. geography, Bourbon Street is one of the top 10 trashiest/most fun places on Earth, located in the French Quarter in New Orleans (…in Lousiana, United States, Earth). It’s just this really old cobblestone street lined with sweating old buildings that house bars dishing out sugary grain alcohol drinks in to-go cups. Every bar has their “specialty” and they’re all revolting. But when in New Orleans, right? All of New Orleans is “open container”, meaning you can walk around with a cocktail or beer in your hand. There are frequent impromptu parades, lots of crime, and LOTS of bachelor and bachelorette parties.
On this day, we went to Tropical Isle and had some “grenades” which basically taste like a 7/11 slushie mixed with rubbing alcohol. We also went somewhere else and threw beads off the balcony to boys who showed us their boobies. It’s hard to say where that was though. It’s all blurry after that. Luckily, one of the girls was nice enough to take “Big Boy” AKA my camera back to the hotel so I didn’t destroy him (like I destroyed my liver).
It was really fun. It’s definitely one of those places that you have to go to, just to check it off your bucket list.
Have you ever been to New Orleans? Where’s your favorite place to party?
