Let The Good Times Roll

Let The Good Times Roll

When you think Mardi Gras, you probably think of New Orleans, Louisiana. But there’s a big event going on no much closer to the luxury apartments of Alexan Auburn Lakes with all the fun, festivity and fanfare of the Crescent City’s biggest event.

Mardi Gras Galveston is a huge event with food, music and parades. Parades are rolling every day through Fat Tuesday and organizers expect more than 3 million beads to be tossed to the crowds. For the best view, buy a ticket to one of the balcony parties. This is a great way to celebrate Mardi Gras with the kids.

When it comes to the best king cake in town, Houstonia Magazine has some suggestions. Here’s a tip, stay away from the grocery store versions! Get your Louisiana fix at The Boil House where you can finish off a platter of spicy crawfish with a slice of king cake, brought in from the world-famous Gambino's Bakery in the New Orleans area. You can even take home a whole king cake to enjoy with coffee the next morning. Crawfish season began weeks earlier than normal this year and the prices should come down as more mudbugs emerge. My favorite Louisiana dish!

3 Brothers Bakery offers a variety of Mardi Gras-themed cakes, from the traditional cinnamon king cake to a sheet cake covered in purple, gold and green beads and leaves.

But one of the best places to celebrate Mardi Gras is right here at Alexan Auburn Lakes and Better Homes and Gardens has a lot of great suggestions. All the fun of Fat Tuesday without the crowds. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
