THE GREEN LEGION INVADES THE BIG EASY, NOVEMBER 2ND-6TH, 2012!!
There's no short story to this trip so take a minute and let me put you in New Orleans for a little while. Upon arrival at any of our French Quarter hotels, you will find street musicians and performers along with two amazing streets of absolutely adult fun! Thankfully after trip number one, a friend showed me that there is MUCH more to the French Quarter than just Bourbon Street! Let me tell you about Decatur, "the other Bourbon Street!" Café du Monde which you know is famous is located there. On the way, you may run into a concert taking place on Jackson Square! Plenty of street vendors and enough down-home dive bars you won't know which one to go into!
Only three short blocks from there is Bourbon (Decatur and Bourbon run parallel). Great places like Bourbon Cowboy, The Beach, The Famous Door, Bourbon Street Blues Company, Pat O'Brien's, Cat's Meow, and Razzoo!! If adult entertainment is your thing, there are more gentlemen's clubs on Bourbon Street than any place in the country. There is no such thing as an “open container” law as you can go in and out of any place with drinks. Aside the bar scene, the food is AMAZING! Oysters EVERYWHERE along with crawfish! Don't forget to try gator as it is a staple food on some menus!
Since the advent of The Green Legion, every Monday Night Football game we have ever attended was still a standard 3-night package. We leave Saturday and come back Tuesday. The time of departure almost doesn't matter here since bars are open until 5 AM and honestly, the airport is a complete party the entire day. Our flights will depart Saturday but like we've encouraged, getting your own flights for this one are key. Anyone will be able to add a night to their package either on the front or back-end at The Legion's discounted rate. We've also managed to avoid the standard French Quarter 4-night minimum on Monday Night Football games.
So you know, we have FOUR different hotel choices for you! Our best rates for French Quarter hotels are at the Astor Crowne Plaza who we used in 2006, and thankfully, we have added our friends at the Marriott, located 2 blocks from the Astor and wedged between Bourbon and Decatur Streets. Two awesome locations! If your flavor is right in the center of the Quarter and on Bourbon Street, we have a small room block at the Inn On Bourbon! For those who seek the highest end of what we will offer, we also have a small block at the JW Marriott, right across the street from its sister hotel!
So, Friday night and Saturday night will see two of the largest bar crawls you have ever seen! We will be a force to be reckoned with on Bourbon Street and NO ONE OTHER THAN LEGION MEMBERS WILL EVEN BE ALLOWED IN THE BARS WE ARE USING!! Just like the Clevelander in December during the Pep Rally Party, the same will be applicable here. We are still negotiating the location of our Pep Rally Party and you will know soon enough!
Don't forget as well about Monday's tailgate which we are still working out the details. That will be immediately followed up by, you guessed it, The Green Legion PARADE Part DEUX!!In 2006, 3,200 people followed us into the Superdome and it was an incredible site watching a sea of Green march right through downtown New Orleans! There will be revelers, performers with giant heads, and stilt-walkers! We will do it again…with a little twist! We always have a little surprise in there for ya, and this is no different!!
