Bourbon Street Beat

The infamous street known for its sugary booze drinks, strippers, and general shit-show atmosphere is the subject of local geographer Richard Campanella's latest book, Bourbon Street: A History. "The book leaves no stone unturned, from the layout of the French Quarter streets by early colonists to the writings of recent restaurant reviewers, the Rev. Grant Storms' protests at Southern Decadence and local business owners that have staked space and claims of providing alternatives to Bourbon Street's attractions." [Gambit]
