Time To Party Wherever Y'all Are -- It's Mardi Gras!
Sure, we'd all like to be in the Crescent City as things kick into high gear to celebrate Mardi Gras, even with this year's unseasonable below freezing temperatures. Here's a list to savor for anyone wanting to experience a little NOLA, wherever you are. From drinks like the Sazerac and Hurricanes, to chowing down on crawfish, BBQ shrimp, or red beans and rice, we can all partake in the holiday. Don't forget to honor the memory of Katrina and the way this town has pulled together, as well as the rich history of literary stalwarts (Tennessee Williams and Eudora Welty for example) and new artists found in the Warehouse District. Best of all, listen to the rich musical heritage online via WWOZ New Orleans, a volunteer-powered, community-sponsored station ready with authentic, local sounds anytime.
