Carnival days

After the rain passes today, we expect 3 days of glorious Mardi Gras weather, and like millions of other people, I wil spend most of it in and around the French Quarter. Will meet up with friends and family and do things like Stanley’s for gumbo, coffee at Cafe Du Monde, and drink at the updated Carousel Bar,see a parade and hear some music. And just bike around admiring costumes and running into people and catching up.

Carnival is not about getting so drunk that you can’t stand up or flashing body parts or screaming “WOOOO” as you walk down the street. It’s about friends and creative energy and social time while forgetting your cares for a few days. Welcome.
