We will not pretend to be experts on the ways and traditions of our fellow Southerners and Cajun friends down in Louisiana, especially during this Mardi Gras season.  Oh yes, and let’s not forget that Alabama has a dog in the fight, but there’s no need to wade into controversy when there’s a party to be had.  Over the years, we have spent time in the hub of Mardi Gras — New Orleans — and the food and festivities always keep us coming back for more.
