Mardi Gras is Bigger than Ever

In Galveston!

Good for them. This year's theme is “A traditional Mardi Gras,” with an unofficial second theme, “A Salute to the Gulf Coast.”

Dr. John will perform. Bards of Bohemia will roll. (Yes, that Bards of Bohemia.)

Should be fun. At least somebody will have a traditional Mardi Gras. Although, having never been to the Mardi Gras in Galveston, there is one thing I don't understand:
Tickets at the gate for the second weekend are $15 for Friday and $20 for Saturday. A discount two-day pass is on sale for $25 at www.

Tickets? A two-day pass? Huh?

I lived in Moscow Idaho for a while. They had what they called "the Moscow Mardi Gras".

It was on a Saturday.

During Lent.

And they sold beads.

As odd as selling beads to Mardi Gras revelers seems, that may be in New Orleans future.
