Mardi Gras is Tuesday, and the weekend leading up to it is prime time for the people of New Orleans to get super weird, with elaborate, colorful and often perplexing costumes; decked-out parade floats; massive public consumption of food and booze; and generally just doing everything possible to laissez les bons temps rouler ('Let the good times roll'). But in the interest of avoiding an overnight stay on Orient Road, you should probably scale down your Mardi Gras celebration.
