If I'm showing my boobies, I would like chocolate.  Maybe get some necklaces of chocolate kisses.  That would be awesome.

When I was a kid I used to get bags of Mardi Gras trinkets from my relatives in New Orleans.  Lots of beads and doubloons, but the real treasures were the other stuff.  The most awesome to 8 year old me were the rubber "fried eggs".

This is true.

I did Bourbon Street on New Years Eve, never gotten to Mardi Gra, yet. I'm female but I was in a three piece suit and tie in a full windsor, so yeah, I'm not flashing anyone but I figured out real quick you can bribe the girl next to you. I had a LOT of beads.

So I'm the only sober person in several square miles and wandering up the street. For those of you unawares the second floors of the bars are paid members only, and some guy's up there with a case of the GIANT beads, like the Christmas ornament sized beads, and every time he throws them, fights break out. I was not aware of that until I walked by them, he threw beads, and a fight broke out. Long story short, I was punched right to the ear.

I'm tiny, so I went flying, and some massive bouncer for a strip club reaches into the crowd like a human crane, grabs me, lifts me out of the melee, sets me on the sidewalk and dusts me off. At this point I was still buh wah huh ow, and he looks at me and says, verbatim, "Did you see that shiat? That biatch just decked that old lady over beads."

I crossplay as Agent Coulson so I have five tailored suits, a dozen button downs and a farking rainbow of ties from the cheap and amusing to the silk over a hundred bucks a piece range. At one point I could full windsor, half windsor, and four in hand without looking at a reference.

This all said, never, EVER be the best dressed person on Bourbon Street, unless you want to peel strippers off with a spatula.

Hehehehe.

Side note:

I haven't been to Mardi Gras, but I have been to New Orleans for a bachelor party.  Even though we were there on an average weekend in September, it was still a blast.  From our second floor balcony, we had a quite a show on Bourbon Street....and we tossed a lot of beads.

New Orleans locals will appreciate this:

The bachelor party almost took place during Southern Decadence...and we rescheduled once we found out about it.  (And I was the one who found out about it, after mentioning our plans on Total Fark Discussion.)

I'm 99% sure that it's legal for women to walk around topless in NYC, and it's almost certainly because it's legal for men to walk around shirtless.

In any case, beware and be forewarned: in places where public nudity is legal, most if not all of the nude people you'll see are people you wouldn't want to see in the buff.

I lived in New Orleans. I always preferred the cups. I had to buy plates and bowls and silverware as a young bachelor, but never spent a penny on cups. Everyone I knew in NOLA had at least one cupboard half full of Mardi Gras cups.

Yes, anywhere in NYS it is legal for women to be topless in public.

S'truth.  Never Done Mardi gras because..fark drunk frat Boys, but Halloween was still a bit more Locals only back in 2001, and a hell of a time, but, back then, the busted up old garage across the street from Patty O'Brien's  the one with hard wooden benches that didn't even serve drinks, is the beating, magical heart of everything everyone imagines New Orleans to be when they dream of it.

So I just heard this story on NPR about how there are so many beads thrown at Mardi Gras that they are clogging the storm sewers, and there are thousands of pounds of them thrown away every year. Like people don't even bend over and get them off the street after they fall there, because those are dirty and there's plenty others.

This leads me to conclude that the value of those farking beads has been greatly exaggerated, especially since you can find a wealth of them in any thrift store after mardi Gras. So all those women flashing their boobs are yes, you guessed it, attention whores, who will flash their boobs for any damn thing, especially since it's expected.

This is the same sort of mentality that brought us Girls Gone Wild and Joe Francis, one of the worst people in the world. I mean he could possibly rival Trump. In the name of all that is decent and kind in this country, stop encouraging women to bare their bodies for worthless trinkets. I thought you were intellectuals.

/Beads, man.

A week or so before Mardi Gras is actually pretty good. Not too crowded, not too drunk, and all the best musicians are concentrated in the area by bars competing for tourist business. I usually hate parties but I enjoyed my time there.

I never go out on NYE. No matter where I'm living at the time I stay home and drink eggnog.

If you do leave Bourbon Street, you're gambling with your life. It's not uncommon for someone to be jumped,  mugged, then possibly stabbed while down because fark you that's why, just a block or two off Bourbon. When I went to a show on Frenchman St., I took the "safe" route back to the streetcar, careful not to deviate at all from what the hostel manager recommended. When locals are afraid to be out at night, you know it's serious.
