Carnival-Fat Tuesday-MARDI GRAS!
Tomorrow starts the celebration. Mardi Gras, 2015. Although maybe a bit old to squeeze myself through the gin soaked streets of the French Quarter during carnival time, I can pass along a few of my favorite New Orleans haunts, that I urge you to visit – after the beads have been tossed:
- LAFITTE’S BLACKSMITH SHOP – Dirt floors and haunted by Pirates. Perfect.
- d.b.a. NEW ORLEANS – Maybe its the music. Maybe the bartenders who are plenty generous with the Templeton Rye. Maybe, maybe, maybe.
- ERIN ROSE – the theme is “local prices, local chaos, local love”. Check, check, check.
