I spent part of each period today dispelling the myth that Mardi Gras is a bunch of drunken people showing their various body parts to get beads. To be sure, you can see that if you want to but the smell of urine and vomit comes with it on Bourbon Street. I didn't find it to be worth the price, ten years ago. I much preferred the family-oriented Mardi Gras with parades and floats and families gathering along the streets to see the free show. I also enjoyed the gumbo, jambalaya, and king cake that went along with it. I'd love to be down there tonight in New Orleans!
