and because of that, I am choosing to talk about Mardi Gras. Whether you call it Mardi
Gras, Karneval, Carnival, or Carnevale, whether you are in New Orleans, Rio or Venice,
food and drink are BIG! Our own New Orleans has been partying for a week because of their Super Bowl victory last weekend; they switched gears today with the big Mardi Gras Parade. It has arrived! Dig out your beads and masks....it is time to party New Orleans style!
