Know When to Hold 'Em

A Guide to the Uptown Mardi Gras Parade Route's Bathrooms



With Carnival's biggest weekend upon us, the time has come to address that age-old parade route question: Where's the nearest bathroom?

 

The fight for coconuts and shoes and getting a good spot is important. But, after enough beer is put down, those of us who lack giant bladders or friends that live on the parade route will suddenly be owned by an uncontrollable urge to take a leak.

 

There are many pitfalls in vavigating the many bathrooms of Mardi Gras, however. Unforeseen fees could are made to gouge the unthinking, and long walks to a spot where a friend said there was a bathroom could prolong this most uncomfortable of situations. So, to put your bladder at ease, NoDef has scoured the Uptown parade route to put together a little guide
