How was your experience?
It's too bad more folks don't celebrate Mardi Gras in Portland, but if you do, you should have been here! Lots of beads and sparkly costumes, three great bands, including a couple kickass brass sections, a little dancing, a little burlesque (just like Bourbon Street), and even a little King Cake, which was tastier than the ones I had down South. The tarot reader was friendly even though I didn't get a reading (a little pricey at $15). We danced until our legs got tired. Great night -- hope they do it again next year!
