For some reason, things happen thru the years, and things that were once so fun, well just aren’t as exciting. For me personally, I LOVE Mardi Gras!!! But more than that, I LOVE my “King Cakes.”

However, in recent years, I have noticed that when you purchase a “King Cake” the baby is no longer hidden in the cake. I can vividly recall my sisters and I racing through a King Cake to find the baby. Every year, we anxiously awaited this time of year just so that we could get the cake, and compete to find the baby. Tradition has it, or should I say had it, that whomever found the baby in a given year, they were to buy the King Cake next year. And while we never really played up to that tradition, it was still fun to “try and find the baby.”

Jazz Fest

Bruce Springsteen has closed out the first weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with a 2 ½-hour show that combined crowd-pleasers such as “Born to Run” with the cover tune of his new CD, “Wrecking Ball.”

Fans began staking out spots when the Fair Grounds opened at 11 a.m. Sunday, rushing from the entrance gates to spread blankets and set up chairs close to the stage. By the time Springsteen stepped on stage fans were stretched around the fairgrounds track, some standing 10 to 12 people deep.

At one point New Orleans blues legend Dr. John took the stage with Springsteen, joining him on “Something You Got” and “Oh Mary Don’t You Weep.”.

NOLA Mardi Gras

Twelfth Night, the feast of Epiphany, was celebrated by Creole society from the early days of colonial Louisiana. These Bals de Roi (the King’s Ball) were given at plantations and homes for family and friends; the highlight was the cutting of the King Cake (Gateau des Rois), and the finder of the bean—la feve—in his or her cake became Le Roi or La Reine de la feve, and would reign over the next ball, which they were to host. Thus a series of balls began each season and continued until the final great ball of Mardi Gras evening. These traditions were formalized with the organization and first appearance of the Twelfth Night Revelers on January 6, 1870. View full article »

Have you made your Mardi Gras plans yet? Mardi Gras is one of the biggest parties in the world, with people coming to New Orleans from nations around the globe.

Mardi Gras offers a host of parades, and some locations like Bourbon Street are always alive with festivities. While many enjoy getting in the middle of the partygoers on the French Quarter streets, Mardi Gras is an entirely different experience on the balconies. Visitors can see the massive crowds, hear the music, and comfortably enjoy their food and drink provided by their restaurant or bar. View full article »
