Been to New Orleans a few times as I have friends there and I try to visit every year. Usually for a music related reason like Jazzfest or Voodoo Fest. My buddies were always ribbing me about, how come I'd been to NOLA so many times but never for Mardi Gras? Fantastic, Half work, half play trip. Laying a patio and footpath, followed by 4 days of......Erm,..... alcohol related shenanigans I suppose would best descibe it. Love New Orleans, What a great town!!!




The work is done so.

The first move by any English person abroad is to establish your new local. Staying with my buddy in Algiers Point the excellent Old Point Bar was an obvious choice.....


The brilliant Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers tearin' it up in the Krazy Korner.... lot of love on Bourbon, according to Treme!!! Lundi Gras.

ha, thought I heard my name--I was there, mainly on napoleon st where the picture is with the toilet paper in the trees, there's a reason for that (check out all the kids in that picture, mardi gras is very family friendly uptown). tipitina's is at the end of that street, what a great club! there's a documentary on the mobile mardi gras, "the order of myths" that is worth seeing, but as for me, there's NOTHING like mardi gras in NEW ORLEANS!

laissez le bon temps roule!

I have friends that live on Perrier St. Just down from Napoleon around Gen. Taylor so that's where we watched the parades. Handy for the bathroom.... and the fridge! They have kids and as you say, that area is very family friendly. Tipitinas is stumbling distance , didn't make it there this trip tho'
