Mardi Gras!

It’s Mardi Gras! Everyone quick hurry up and get your sin on, because Lent’s a-comin’!

Well, here in DC, we’ve got Lulu’s Club Mardi Gras with DC 101 sponsoring, so Elliott is likely hammered and slurring his love for Flounder over on M St. this morning. I mean, can’t you just see him slumped over, barely holding on to some guy’s shoulder, pointing at Flounder and slurring out “I llllloooove you, man,” because, well, I can.

Of course, up in Dutch Country, today is Fasnacht Day, which means that giant hole-less doughnuts are fried in fat, then served with hot coffee and honey. Not too shabby. Of course New Orleans has the only game in town, what with the parades, and the beads, and the drinking, and the nudity.

Happy Mardi Gras Everyone! What are you up to tonight?

    Don’t forget to check out the annual Mardi Gras parade in Clarendon! Weather guy Doug Hill will be riding in the parade. Starts at 8:00, at Barton Street (by Java Shack, and closer to the Court House Metro) and ends at the Clarendon Metro Station, at Highland Street. More info on

    Dude, of all the times you don’t want to have class, Mardi Gras is #1.

    Depending on what time you class ends…there is a big after-party at Tallula around 9pm. (Complete with Jambalaya and Hurricanes:-)
