Grandstanding for a Cause


By Ashley Larsen

There may still be a lot of Saints Season between here and Mardi Gras but that doesn’t mean it is too early to start getting ready for the party. And the party will be a big one, Mardi Gras usually brings in about one billion dollars every year and enough tourists to pack every streetcar from Canal to St. Charles. Both tourists and locals alike scramble (often lubricated) to get the best throws. But, there is nothing worse than being pushed out of your spot and watching the whole parade from a crowd fifteen people deep. Tipitina’s Foundation has a solution through their 4th annual Mardi Gras Grandstands fundraiser.
