Everyone should experience Mardi Gras at least once. Put on your jester hat, grab some friends, beads, and run around like an idiot for a week. Spend the next week recovering. You'll love it.

Check with www.neworleans.com to confirm the date of Mardi Gras (it varies year to year) and book your hotel room way in advance. The weekend before is just as much fun (maybe even more so because there are less people.) Mardi Gras ends abrupty at midnight Tuesday night, and if you are still lingering around in the wrong place, you may get hosed down by the cleanup crew.
