If you were to pick up the city of New Orleans and turn it upside down, there’s no telling what would fall out— Mardi Gras beads, steaming pots of crawfish, fleur-de-lis anything.
There is a little piece of Mardi Gras history right here on Loyola’s campus, and it all started with a few thrill-seeking Phi Kappa Theta fraternity men.
Don’t get me wrong, I love king cake, and I thoroughly enjoy taking an extra week off from school. Mardi Gras itself, though? Not so much these days.
Freret— it’s difficult to pronounce if you aren’t from New Orleans, but it’s probably one of the first streets any Loyola student becomes familiar with.
King cakes have a long history in New Orleans.
Mardi Gras is a marathon. Don’t get caught unprepared.
What’s the happiest time of day?
