At midnight tonight, the cops will walk and ride horses in a line several blocks wide, with a parade of cleaning machines following them. They will sweep all the people out of the french quarter and Mardi Gras will end.

it is a sight to see.

That's why Catholicism is for suckers. The rest of us can keep partying all night long!

What a thankless task, walking about at Mardi Gras with a sign condemning just about everybody present to eternal hellfire.

There's a special part of Heaven reserved for the "Repent!" crowd. It is a long, long, long way away from anyone else. They get to enjoy spending eternity preaching at... themselves.

Creosote,
What they don't realize is everyone's naked in heaven.

Nola webcams have been here before.

Ignoring the fact that if it were not for those suckers there would be no mardi gras.

mardi gras is much better when you're not on bourbon street.

2:00 a.m. New Orleans time and I still saw me some boobies! 2:49 a.m. CST and now it's just party-pooping cops and a trashed, wet street.

Nola webcams have been here before.

And before before. But there's no such thing as too many beads. Happy Lent all.

Hmm, but I think I'd have actually preferred to be in Cologne, Germany for Mardi Gras, strangely enough.

special note: boobs for beads is almost strictly a bourbon street thing. locals tend to avoid bourbon like the plague. if any of you come down for mardi gras in the future, i recommend catching the parades on st. charles or elsewhere in uptown, then heading over to frenchman street in the marigny for late night partying. you'll avoid the crowds (and the filth, for the morst part) and have a great time. sorry, though, you probably won't see people flashing for beads.
