    I miss New Orleans, the city I became an artist. Eight years...eight carnivals, the Krewe du Vieux, the MOMs Ball, the long days on the neutral ground,the fevered pitch at the stroke of midnight on Mardi Gras Day.

    There was a time I too thought is was a mere Bacchanal, drink specials, beads, Spring Break-like with a theme. There is no cultural equivalent in the rest of Protestant North America, I can't do it justice, there is only one way to know.

    "It has been said that a Scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen Edinburgh; and I think that I may say that an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi-Gras in New Orleans."

    Mark Twain - Letter to Pamela Moffett, 9 and 11 March 1859

    There are too many other restaurants on the North side of Chicago to be bothered with one that is not sanitary.
