What the hell is Mardi Gras?

Please help me understand Mardi Gras. So I'm trying to get my fortune cookie business off the ground and a customer recently requested a Mardi Gras theme (despite the fact that the date is well passed) I think she means New Orleans themed. What does this mean? As far as I can tell the colors green and purple are good. Honestly any suggestions for themes with the fortunes or the packaging would be great.

2010 Krewe du Vieux

I'm going to New Orleans in a couple of weeks, and I'm excited to get to attend the 2010 Krewe du Vieux parade - I hear it's pretty crazy and that spectators really get into it with costumes, etc. Have you ever been? What's it like? Do people really dress up? Thanks!

Heading to the Big Easy

Speaking of New Orleans, I am going to Mardi Gras with some friends but would like some off-the-beaten-path suggestions for things to do. Stuff like jazz, cemeteries, unique cuisine, etc. (with no major budgetary concerns).

From my memory of MG 2000, Bourbon Street gets pretty old pretty quickly.
