Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" Originally created in Mobile, Alabama but now made into amazing shit by New Orleans, Louisiana. Although Mardi Gras Day is the big day of celebration it is the days, or should we say nights, that are really celebrated. Random hookups, exposures of oneself, and complete and total memory loss and lack of judgement occur on these wondeful nights.
Only during Mardi Gras will you see a 12 year old smoking weed and a 10 year old drinking beer. BUt only in New Orleans are people actually use to it.
