King cake for Twelfth Nightcostume drawingLet them eat king cake!  The carnival season begins tonight, but the partying has been going on for a while with Reveillon dinners, cotillions, and parties to ring in the New Year.

This will be an interesting carnival season with New Orleans hosting the Super Bowl on February 3rd, and Mardi Gras closely behind on February 12th.

The city is looking great!  If you haven’t been to New Orleans in a while, make 2013 the year to visit.
