Today is Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday.” It is the last day of the Carnival season and always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Not being religious, I think of Mardi Gras as a celebration in New Orleans.
I have never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans and I am sure I am missing out on a lot, even though, I think today’s weather isn’t great down there. I like Nola and had a very interesting trip there in 2008 with the Society of Wine Educators conference.
At the time, I wrote this post on my blog which has been one of the most widely read posts in the six years I have been writing this blog. Who knew – the Muffaletta was such a big draw?
