Mardi Gras 2013 began yesterday, and yours truly was there.

Teaching all day inside the Mercedes Benz Super Dome, dinner at The Palace Cafe on Canal Street, beignets for dessert at Cafe Du Monde while sitting on Jackson Square fence, watching Mardi Gras parade pass by.

Heading back to the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, for amusement, we walked a few blocks down Bourbon Street.

What started as a spontaneous moment to stop, step aside, and people watch for a moment morphed into a 30-minute sit-com.


Fascinating, it seemed we (most likely) were the only two sober folks in town.

Alcohol made everyone amazingly brave. But it didn’t make anybody an ounce stronger.
