@wkempf:Yes, it was an experience. The guys in the cart driving down the road spraying all the standing water are a big turn off. Never mind the proprietors of the less reputable establishments yelling disturbing things at you. I tried the Vegas thing to ignore the porn peddlers. This just made the Bourbon St. proprietors yell directly at me. I really don't like being singled out being an introverted geek. And then my clueless co-worker thought it'd be a good idea to talk about that on Facebook which ended with my wife being fairly upset with me. I can't post the things yelled at me by the proprietors on here.
I did eat at a small restaurant just off Bourbon St. that was pretty good. Based on my old receipts it must have been Oceana Grill. Pretty good local style food.
