When people think New Orleans, they think Mardi Gras and those 90s “Girls Gone Wild” movies. I was told that my first trip to New Orleans should NOT be during this time, and I’m glad that I went when I did. I can’t imagine what the streets must look like during Mardi Gras. It was already plenty packed during a normal weekend.
Back in the day, the whole girls flashing for beads was just a Mardi Gras thing, but somehow it happens year round now. I definitely saw some women flashing (top and bottom) for some beads. Doesn’t really make too much sense to me since you can just pick them up off the street. So, that’s what Jill and I did. We picked up beads off the street and then started heckling some guys to “show us their tits”. Most of the guys were pretty confused and probably felt like we were taking advantage of them…which we were. I found it hilarious. Hey, why not switch the roles?
