Early 30s Single Virtually zero responsibilities in life. A friend, who lives in New Orleans, just invited me to spend the week at his place to experience Mardi Gras. My inclination is to accept, but I'm interested to hear stories if anyone's got em (that way I'll have a better idea what I'm getting myself into). I'd have to book a flight (Roughly a four hour trip) and take the week off. So I'd be losing some money, but it isn't anything I can't afford. The thing is, I'm not entirely sure I want to put in all the effort just to attend a massive shit-show (if that's just what it is). Then again, maybe I do... So, yea, anyone got any stories or advice? Thanks in advance.
