Mardi Gras Update: Bethesda

Rollicking good time in bethesda

People are shuffling around, not making eye contact, as I prance around shirtless, my body painted green, purple and silver, the only person enjoying the significance of this day. Bethesda – I ask – what gives? Where is the fun? I get the whole ban on public nudity because you have to draw the line somewhere, even if it is arbitrary, but does that ban extend to all types of fun? Is this a city of squares who wouldn’t know how to party if given a rule book?

Yep, that about sums it up for Bethesda. What’s going on in your neck of the woods?

    I know that tonight there will be jambalaya and king cake in my house. I don’t particularly miss the crowds or the fact that there’s never anyplace to pee, but I do miss Mardi Gras season food and the general atmosphere of fun and excitement.

    Now it’s a nice day out for public nudity, too. What a shame.
