party inspiration board: mardi gras madness

Happy Fat Tuesday! As some of you know, I spent my college days in New Orleans and that crazy, crooked city is one of my favorite places in all the world. Mardi Gras is an incredible time to feel the life and spirit of the city... you just can’t help but get caught up in the whirlwind. Case in point: one year I chased Harry Connick Jr's float down over 10 city blocks, and nearly broke my arm in the process. Perhaps not my proudest moment, but you better believe I still have those Orpheus beads he threw me for my effort. But I digress... here's a little New Orleans flavor to perk up your day.  As they say in the Big Easy... Lassiez Les Bon Temps Roulez!
