Less than a month away! Tuesday March 8th.

This should be a warm and memorable one. Kinda got overshadowed by "Lombardi Gras" last year.

Who's coming down? Buncha good shows going on this year. Black Lips, Oh Sees, etc. Someone else should list them.

So....Mobile or New Orleans?

I've had people praise both.

I'm thinking about Mobile this year because I don't think I can afford a place to stay in New Orleans. I've never heard much about the Mobile Mardi Gras though.

NOLA all the way.

I've been working on a float all year...with no idea where to debut it.

You supply the helium and I'll supply the blow up dolls.

"Seriously" is right.
If you're even considering Mobile, don't go to New Orleans.

So you guys have done both?

my mama lives halfway between Mobile and Pensacola - for the last 4 years I've been going down there and hitting all of these fun rural parades she knows about - there's one at Pelican Point, where you tailgate and have a 2-3 hour street party waiting for the krewe to get it together, then the floats are all boats on trailers... we drink wine, play cards, catch some beads. right now, it's more my speed than the old days partying behind Chad's record store between parades in NOLA.

Found a place to crash! I'll be at all three of those shows.

No, but let me put it to you this way:
I hear they've got a really nice replica of the Eiffel tower in Las Vegas.

Advice I coined today for gras first timers:

Just prepare for it as if you are attending the gathering of the juggalos.

...with more black people!

Yeah, isn't this thing like the fratboy holiday of the year? I've never wanted to go in the past but i love NOLA and I'm hopefully moving there in the Fall so I figured I should check it out at least once.

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is really big. Some parts are very family oriented, others full of frat boys, and everything in between.

Saying Mardi Gras is full of frat boys is like saying Brooklyn is full of hipsters. There's a lot more to each.

with more black people!

And more black face
