This past weekend was my first Mardi Gras experience! I had a blast!! I went with some new friends: Tyler, Kristen, Alexis and Tim. It was also my first time in Soulard. Beads, people and beer everywhere. We took the metro link to get there. I figured it was going to be crowded, and it sure was. Thats part of the fun though! As soon as we got there we enjoyed some drinks and started dancing. St. Louis sure likes to party. It came to my surprise that a lot of people were from Chicago and wearing Blackhawks jerseys. Which, I thought about wearing mine. Since they were playing that night and THEY WON! It was such a great day and night.
