Signs Of Life In New Orleans - Strippers Return

The entrepreneurial spirit runs strong in the face of disaster. Witness the French Quarter, which knows it's customers.

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - In a sign that things may be returning to normal in New Orleans, strip shows are back in the city's famous French Quarter.

Erotic dancers and strippers are entertaining crowds of police, firefighters and military personnel instead of the usual audiences of drunken conventioneers and tourists in Bourbon Street's Deja Vu club, which reopened this week.

It's the first strip joint to resume business, three weeks after Hurricane Katrina struck in the worst natural disaster ever to hit the United States.

"It's nice to get back to work, and all these men need some entertainment," Dawn Beasley, 27, a dancer at the club, said on Tuesday night. "They haven't seen anybody but their buddies for two weeks."

With Ted Kennedy hanging around town, what did you expect - that city knows how to pander to the special interests of its visitors.

Really depends on which club you go to. Scarlett's actually had cute dancers who lacked boob-jobs when I went there New Years Eve 2001. The place with the manikin legs swinging through the wall certainly matched your description, though.
