It’s official. I have disgraced myself and made my love of having a good time a mockery to the entire meaning of the name.
But, luckily, I was not the only one to do so by a long shot!
For those of you who don’t know, which in my experience the past couple of days that would be more then I am allowing myself to believe, Mardi Gras was last tuesday. That’s right everyone. It seems as though the majority of us have completely forgotten about the beloved holiday and passed right over it.
Personally, I blame the person who started the whole “Endless Brunch Is Illegal”. You’d be surprised, but most New Yorkers that I know were still celebrating the revelation that their unlimited mimosas were legal. Sure, it wouldn’t have stopped us if it was illegal, I’m not even going to try and lie about that, but it did give us one hell of a reason to celebrate!
So…. I think that we should all be given a free pass when it comes to forgetting anything during this week. But, I’ll try to make up for it with some of New Orleans, aka Mardi Gras headquarters, best drinks. Just drink them pretending it’s Mardi Gras and you’ll be okay.
