I posted my pictures from Mardi Gras a few days ago on Flickr. Check them out here.
Mardi Gras was awesome. More than that, New Orleans was awesome. I didn’t see anything more than the French Quarter, but I already know that I want to go back to visit not during Mardi Gras. That city has a ton of character along with some great places to eat. Since we were only down there for 3 days we only had time to do the typical tourist routine. We hit up Cafe Du Monde for beignets and cafe au lait, Central Grocery for muffaletta sandwiches, drank hurricanes, bought hand grenades from Tropical Isle and caught countless beads from floats at the Bacchus Ball (complete with parade king Val Kilmer!).
