The day before Ash Wednesday; the end of the Carnival season which begins on January 6. It's a public (and paid) holiday in New Orleans, so there's not really much to do after the parades. Of course, there is Bourbon Street, but only if you're a hopeless alcoholic, a complete loser, or a skank who is willing to show her breasts for Chinese plastic beads worth about twelve cents.

The day before is called Lundi Gras.
Man 1: "Dude, I waited until the night before Mardi Gras to go to New Orleans, because I didn't know that there's nothing to do the next day. Even the coffee shops were closed!"

Man 2: "You're an idiot."
