HOUSTON, TX – The King of the Carnival is in, the floats are all gussied-up and those beads are ready to be earned, which could only mean one thing, Fat Tuesday is here folks.
New Orleans is officially open for business and Mardi Gras has begun. For those of us who couldn’t make the drive or didn’t care to whether NOLA’s soggy weather, don’t despair. All ya need is a little Cajun food, a couple of drinks and some beads of your own, and you too can tear it up like you’re smack-bad in the middle of Bourbon Street.
Whether you’re celebrating in the Bayou City, or boozin’ on Bourbon, eventually all good things must come to an end. Before you know it the end of Mardi Gras police parade will be linin’ ’em up, hosin’ em down and disinfecting the streets of any “impurities.”
Here’s to hopin’ you don’t have to see ’em before then!
