At the corner of Bourbon Street and Bienville, sits the stuff that legends are made of -- The Old Absinthe House. I can't describe the French Quarter to you, Twinkie. It's something you have to see to believe. We will go there sooooon! It's not a bad drive at all and once I drove there JUST to see Jack perform at VooDoo Fest. :))

Mardi Gras, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, is a Carnival celebration of food; a revelry before the first day of Lent; a final hurrah before forty days of fasting and abstinence—and boy, is it a wild festival in New Orleans. All in all, the festivities last two weeks, but culminate in bacchanalian parties and colorful parades during the five days surrounding Mardi Gras.
