Today in NOLA 2.28.17 (Mardi Gras)


Well folks, we made it. Happy Mardi Gras! The city is waking up early, with parades and parties beginning at sunrise. Following the krewe marches and the Bourbon Street Awards, some NOLA all-stars will play on Frenchmen. Looking for good food? Hit up Northside Skull & Bone Gang's breakfast and then grab lunch at Bar Redux's annual Fat Tuesday fry. On this day in 1985, then Governor Edwin Edwards was indicted by a federal grand jury on 51 counts of racketeering. Now, more Mardi Gras happenings.

Bourbon Street Awards (Photos)

Divas, queens (some in drag, others just by nature) gays and straights packed into the the corner of St. Anne and Bourbon yesterday for the 49th Annual Bourbon St. Awards.  From fantastic and massive constructions to precariously placed fig leaves, the costumes and crowd were an incredible and amazing sight to be seen.  Click through for photos.


Bourbon Street Awards Set to Confer Carnival Costuming Crowns

Flamboyance, excess and grandeur hardly describe the scene of fabulousness in the most extreme sense that is preparing to saturate Bourbon St. on Fat Tuesday for the 49th Annual Bourbon St. Awards. The costume contest of the Gay Mardi Gras is one of the best spots to find elaborate costumes on Mardi Gras Day, and doesn't fall short in the people-watching category, either.
