Mardi Gras Today

Drink up before lent! I'm glad to hear the great city of New Orleans is back with a huge Mardi Gras party..... I went down there when I was 21. I remember getting up and walking near Tulane University on our way to breakfast. It was about 9am, and on the sidewalk was a Bloody Mary stand. The guy, seeing my disheveled look, yelled at me: "Three bucks, best hangover cure ever!" Boy, was he right... Where else to you get a Bloody Mary stand, let alone at 9am? He mixed it up how I like it, put it in a nice plastic cup for me, and I was on my way.... Picture everything that's great about Montreal, multiply it by three and subtract the cold and the infuriating politics. I will definitely go back there again.
