Mardi Gras
 
I was born in 'Nawlins but grew up on Bayou Manchac. Where else in the world can you jam over 1.5 million people in one spot to party? MARDI GRAS, 'Nawlins style!
Who's going? We had a parade here today in the little town I live in.

My wife and I honeymooned in New Orleans. We stayed in the French Quarter, saw/heard great music, ate like royalty, had Banana's Foster at Brennan's, took a paddlewheel ride on the Mississippi, took a cooking class at the N.O. School of Cooking, enjoyed the beignets and snowstorms of powdered sugar at Cafe du Monde, ate a Muffaletta from Central Grocery and on and on. We quite literally had the time of our life.

I'd go, but I'm taking a trip up north. My girlfriend is going though. Bummer :/

We'll be celebrating Mardi Gras the way our family always has. Traditional Cajun style.

All of us FTF people on the gulf coast should coordinate a crawfish boil/ shooting get together. Just sayin.

Used to live in Houma and I always liked Halloween in the French Quarter better... less touristy!

There is a current member here who lives in Houma. He's a very interesting person.

The closer you get to New Orleans, the more commercial it gets. I'm not too fond of all the out of hand immoral behavior that happens there.

Children's Mardi Gras today. My kids had a blast. Now they're worn out taking naps.
