Mardi Gras is all about walking around and costuming for the locals …. Royal Street, Chartres Street, the Marigny, everywhere but Bourbon Street. Our stops to see good friends this year included Pere Antoines Restaraunt at Royal and St Ann, Crescent City Cigars at Orleans behind the Cathedral, the McRaneys house on Royal St. for the Society of St. Ann walking parade, Mollys on Decatur, Road Kill on Decatur (whose owner John Dunn is always so gracious about letting Gayle use his Harley when she is in town …thanks John!!) and of course Frenchmen Street. Here’s what it looked like, with a few photos below and more on the right.
