Unless you avoid me on all social media outlets, you are not aware that I am heading to the Big Easy next week for Mardi Gras! If you're a Twitter/Instagram follower then you are beyond bored of hearing about it already. I can't help it, y'all, I'm so excited! I am like a little kid who can't sleep the night before Christmas. I'm making the road trip with one of my nearest and dearest old friends. We have made the trek every other year since we turned 21 and it has made for some of the best memories. Since Fat Tuesday is ONE week from today, I wanted to share some of my favorite tastes of New Orleans-style merrymaking with all of my little chickens today!
Un, deux, trois... laissez les bon temps rouler!
I've visited New Orleans more times that I can count. It is only six tiny hours from Memphis, and I have travleed by car and train to the city of frozen beverages at all different times of the year. There's no bad time to visit NOLA, but here are some of the things I am most looking forward to doing during Mardi Gras. I love the sounds of the music on every corner and the traditional costumes mixed in with the crazy bead tossing parade float riders. From cafe au lait and beignets to hot dog carts and frozen daquriris in 88 oz cups. You know what, why don't you just come with me!? Ok deal.
