Throw Me Somethin’ Mistuh!
The Mardi Gras Book
“Have you ever been to the Mardi Gras?” It’s a question we get asked a lot, and its hard to answer. Mardi Gras isn’t something you just “go to”. It’s something that happens, and if you’re in New Orleans at the right time, it’s something that will happen to you. In these poems, we’ve tried to let you touch and taste it all, from the first slice of king cake to the cool Ash Wednesday quiet of the St. Louis Cathedral. If you’re from New Orleans, you’ll find yourself in more than a few of these poems. If you’re not from New Orleans, we’ve included a glossary of sorts to help you understand the sometimes-foreign language of New Orleans culture. Read the poems and laugh. Remember the time it happened to you and share them with friends.
