Aw, I grew up in Mobile, AL but never made it to NOLA for festivities because Mobile has its own. Actually, many Mobilians claim Mardi Gras originated in Mobile, not New Orleans... it's quite a controversial topic that I like to stay out of.

Actually, DH and I are thinking of doing an Austin/New Orleans trip this year. Just trying to figure out the best time of year to go (read: not too hot).
oh, nice! i would love to live in NOLA.
