Such a festive weekend! Friday the 13th (not the stupid movie) followed by Valentine's Day. Monday is President's day, but in New Orleans we don't really observe President's day because we observe Mardi Gras day instead, which falls on Feb. 24th this year. And this weekend the parades are rolling.
Here's a pic of a big *ss house on St. Charles Ave. flying big *ss Mardi Gras Krewe flags.
