Happy Mardi Gras!


It's that magical time again when people get out of control crazy, and more importantly, drunk -- Tuesday! Oh and I guess it's Mardi Gras.

For those of us who can't be there (and I assume if you're reading this you're not at Mardi Gras right now…and if you are then stop reading this and go drink some more for me) here's a pretty damn good quality webcam (with sound). You can watch Bourbon Street, a balcony, and perhaps most exciting, a cam pointed directly at the karaoke stage.

It's still pretty early so it's relatively tame at the moment, but things are starting to pick up and I bet in a few hours it'll be a sight to behold. I just watched a spirited and rousing rendition of "You Shook Me All Night Long" by the self-proclaimed "Run DMV".

I've never been to New Orleans, but I've wanted to visit for a long time and hope I can make it out next year.

What are your best, craziest, and weirdest Mardi Gras stories?
