Charon and Bourbon
Charon and Bourbon is not a real place. It is a sort of code-word used by Sin Eaters in New Orleans to identify one another. There is no real intersection of Charon and Bourbon street, and so asking someone who is not a Sin Eater about the intersection or where it is will most likely produce only confused looks.
The Message Board
During the storm, internet message boards were one of the few reliable methods of communication available to diaspora New Orleanians who wished to stay in touch with thier erstwhile neighbors, or just find information and resources about the disaster. One such message board, called Charon and Bourbon, sprang up for Sin Eaters at this time. All though the storm has passed, many Sin Eater’s still frequent the site, using it to arrange meetings, trades, or simply to pass along information to the group
