Horny Holiday

Run with the bulls at San Fermin in Nueva Orleans

Full_runningofthebullsnola

The Running of the Bulls: dangerous.

The
Running of the Big Easy Rollergirls Dressed as Bulls: perhaps even more so.

It's all part of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans, an annual festival that replicates and pays homage to the world-famous cattle-dodging street sprint in Pamplona, Spain.

This four-day event in July is a way to experience New Orleans in a whole new way, running through the streets rather than stumbling down them. There's a Spanish
wine dinner, a pre-party, a post-party, and of course, the big event itself early Saturday, before the Big Easy becomes the Big Steamy.

And each hasĀ plenty of booze.

While you're there, stay at the historic
Audubon Cottages, a charming and romantic property with just seven guest quarters and what is believed to be the oldest swimming pool in the French Quarter. Featuring butler service, complimentary breakfast, and possibly a few ghosts, this and all properties in the New Orleans Hotel Collection are offering 10% off their best rates for the festival.

Ideal for getting plenty of pre-running shut-eye.

Which is the best preparation for outsmarting a bull on roller skates.
