Mardi Gras is the best! It is not the wild, crazy party you see on TV. Don't get me wrong, it is a lot of fun and the whole city shuts down for almost a week. It's like a giant tailgate or BBQ but lasts for days and you get to catch cool stuff from parades! Believe me when I say that catching a Muses shoe (pictured below) is a huge deal and that glitter covered heel is one of my prized possessions!
