In the UK we don't really have Mardi Gras - but we do have Pancake Day! Mine will have fresh lime juice and brown sugar.

Well, you do what you can do, eh Les from Hull? Personally, I think the only party worth celebrating anymore is Carnivale way down dere in South Amerikay (New Orleans Mardi Gras is now sponsored by AT&T type stuff and much too tame). So don't feel bad, I don't get to party the way we were meant to before Lent either.

Down at the zoo,
they all ask for you,
Down at the zoo,
well they all ask for you,
Down at the zoo,
they all ask for you,
the chickens ask,
the cows ask,
they all ask for you.

Way down yonder in New Orleans,
they all ask for you....

Lift a cool one to Professor Longhair and every musician who added to the wonderful chaos of New Orleans!

PattyClink you beat me to it! I raise one to P. Longhair! Let the party begin! Oh and Dr. John and The Neville Brothers. One of these days I will make it there. Haven't done a Mardi Gras yet.
Peace. Rustic

I did Mardi Gras in 2000. Me and a friend did 5 days there. I think my entire body would go on strike if I subjected it to that again.... ;)

Best part of the whole trip, was listening to a small jazz group play 'Over in the Gloryland' outside of Preservation Hall. Great time.

Got it on my camcorder, too. I might just have to sit back and watch some home movies... :)

The Shrove Tuesday pancake race in Olney, England has for many years also been contested in Liberal, Kansas, USA.....here is one web site dedicated to the race and results ...there are others...

(times have gotten faster over the years!)

This website KARNEVAL will give you a good idea of what goes on during Karneval/Fasching/Fastnacht in German-speaking countries and the history behind the customs.

Prost! Cheers!

I think we should all hold hands and sing "Iko, Iko."

Cajunologie (local UK group) are holding a Mardi Gras dance just outside Canterbury, Kent, on Saturday 15th March.
If you fancy dressing up & joining the party, pm me for details.

While hoisting, give a memory to Tipitina's--gone but not forgotten.
