for mardi gras, we went to area... of course... it was really fun. a bunch of people were there that don't come all the time anymore, and it was nice to see them. they were passing out beads, and there were a bunch of fun masks. me and a bunch of the girls had a blast on the dance floor and trying to get as many beads as we could. (no we didn't get them the "traditional" way) it is fun to have friends and great place to go on holidays like this!
