    1. I wouldn’t go to NO for anything especially Mardi Gras. It’s better & safer where Mardi Gras started, Mobile Alabama. And I still won’t go downtown & it’s only a couple of miles away.

      1. The place always had a reputation for trouble, especially in and around the French Quarter, and it got worse post-Katrina.
        Re: Mobile – I’m more familiar with Dauphin Island, Or was. It’s been nailed by a couple of hurricanes since I was last there.
        P.S. Mardi Gras began in Europe. 😀
