I mean, beads!!!

Mardi Gras is scary early, this year. Fat Tuesday, proper, is Feb. 5. Seriously. February 5. Carnival, as always, begins on Jan. 6, and so does the first bead-catching, boob-baring parade. The heavy-duty parades kick in on Jan. 25. Here's the Times-Picayune's site, if anyone wants the schedules.

It's a good year to plan a trip to the city that's still suffering the effects of Hurricane Katrina, I think. I haven't been back to the Big Easy in probably eight years, and at only six hours away, it's due. Now let me just Google the number for the Prytania Inn...
