Mardi Gras in Metairie


Gotta leave something unfinished, it's a tradition.  

I spent Mardi Gras (the day) in Metairie, against my determined desire to do it right (bus to NOLA for the Zulu and Rex parades), because it was WET and the very road that my bus to New Orleans runs on was closed due to Metairie's own parades.

Suffice it to say, Metairie's Mardi Gras is less crazy than NOLA's Mardi Gras: no tourists and more families of all ages (people get married early down here).  And the prettiest girls aren't yet.
