I have been to Mardi Gras twice before and it has been a blast. I went with my ex from college who was from that area. We stayed in an apartment right off Bourbon St., saw Cowboy Mouth at the HOB, went to get beignets at Cafe DuMond at 4:00 in the morning, got margaritas at Margaritaville, and lastly I got my wallet pick-pocketed. However, I had such a great time!! It was dirty and crowded and we were drunk, but it was great. I hope to go again with some of my good friends and family now. It was fun with my ex and her friends, but I hope to make it back with mine.
I know N.O. still has a long way to go to get back to the way it was. And on a day like today, I just wanted to say that I hope it will be back and even stronger very soon!!
