I celebrated mardi gras party this weekend with some good friend from New Orleans . I was in New Orleans recently during my drive across country and I loved it. I need to plan a longer trip back there, maybe next year during Mardi Gras.
At my friend's party there was a second line, red beans and rice, humma humma cocktails, a king cake and lots of dirty south music. We drove from our little beach city to the valley and it was worth the trek. Lots of booty shakin'!
