A good friend who lives there assures me that they no longer throw coconuts! The French Quarter after the family rated parades etc, is no place for the kids. Sometimes they reward some folks if they promise NOT to flash. What happen on Bourbon St stay on Bourbon street! Like Vegas! I was in Vegas for a transplant meeting and was confused by legalities on the strip. If I bought a beer in a shop, I had to drink it out on the street, where the "dancers" were handing out card describing their services. I walked up to a cop and asked for clarity, what was unacceptable behavior on the strip? He told me: We frown on violence! So I didnt!
