Happy Mardi Gras!

A sore throat and slight fever may have sidelined our usual Mardi Gras day activities, which typically involve a 6:30 am wake up call, Zulu with mimosas and bloodies (from Igor's), catching my sleeve of cups and mini boeuf gras from my dad, and then an amble through the Quarter to the Marigny for all-day costume viewing. 

However, there is one tradition that simply cannot be stifled regardless of illness or stitches (poor Craig!).  It is a without-fail, must-happen, required closure of each Carnival season. 

You know you love it. 

We do it once a year.  That is all.  And, yes, there is a "vegetarian option" for me, a biscuit and fries.  We emerged from our house, got in a long line with the post-parade costumed revelers and ordered our a la carte options and combo.  A successful Mardi Gras indeed.

Happy Happy Mardi Gras...may you enjoy the spirit of Carnival today wherever you may be!
