1. Decorate in green, gold and purple.
Dare to be ugly.
2. Have a seafood boil.
3. Eat a king cake.
4. Mix a Mardi Gras martini.
Okay with that also. Oop, made a mistake. Let’s try another one.
Whoopsie. Did it again. Let’s make three and see which one is best. Then we’ll make that one.
5. Make a shoebox float.
Then look at it.
6. Learn some Cajun French.
Gitcha gitcha gris-gris gumbo yaya. Done.
7. Snack on some MoonPies.
8. See some house floats.
Mardi Gras without the flashers, but a good excuse to keep your Christmas lights up.
9. Dress up your dog.
No. It embarrasses you and annoys the dog.
10. Take a virtual tour of Mardi Gras World.
It’s kinda cool in a 2nd grade field trip kinda way, but it’s virtual so it’s more like shopping for mattress covers online.
