Greetings 2013 Carnival enthusiasts! The season is upon us, and in the past I’ve written some dos and don’ts in the form of top tens, a course of 101 and 201, to ensure a safe, happy, and mutually beneficial Mardi Gras experience. Black outs be damned! We have Flambeaux! Come to think of it, in 2018, having Flambeaux on standby to illuminate the game wouldn’t be the worst idea. Anyhow, enjoy the recap to follow, and for goodness sake’s take it to heart.
(1) Don’t park your car on the neutral ground. It may not be signed and everyone else may be doing it, but you – and they – will all get tickets. I see it every year. And no matter how designated your driver is, not a one of you should be behind the wheel. Ride your bike, people!
