Get Your Mardi Gras On In Vegas

February 9, 2012 at 7:32 PM | by | ()

If those college buddies haven't yet committed to trekking to Mardi Gras this year, the New Orleans trip probably isn't happening. That doesn't mean it's time to resign to Google Imaging for body paint and bead pics with one hand while sucking Doritos off the other. Which reminds us we did not miss those commercials this year.

Spending Mardi Gras in Las Vegas is more than catching Rio's Show in the Sky, streaking through The Orleans, throwing back jello shots at any of six Vegas Fat Tuesday locations, or heading downtown to Mermaids and La Bayou to start your Mr. T bead collection. That's just the first few hours of the trip, kids.

Las Vegas has more in store, letting us get more than our fill of Mardi Gras -- and rich, fatty foods -- around February 21 this year:

Move to $5 shots, enjoy a cupcake lunch watching the parade, and finish off the night with college kids consuming all they can drink. And, if that's not enough boob for your Mardi Gras... well, you know where to go for those. And, we bet they'll be announcing boo-bead parties soon, too. (See what we did there?)
