Mardi Gras Day Bourbon Street antics warming up. They’ve been drinking since daylight. After dark it will turn into ‘freaks and hairies dykes and fairies’.
TOPICS: Weird Stuff
It’s a shame Alvin Lee died due to complications from stomach surgery. He was a great guitar player.
Though I am in middle age, I’ve always thought it might be kinda fun to see New Orleans during Mardi Gras.
But a few stories I have heard about it were not great. They weren’t horrible – but it was kinda like “Yeah, there was a lot of drinking…yeah, there were women lifting their shirts to get beads…yeah, there were a lot of oddballs milling around…yeah, the place kinda smelled like barf, pee and stale beer”.
I’d like to see New Orleans more during the off season where you can do some serious eating. I’ve heard good things about the restaurants.
