Tip List #2 for Surviving Mardi Gras
Wearing too many beads will attract the dirty ladies who think that just your acknowledgement of their existence is enough to warrant them ownership of your best beads.
Beware the female with the most beads. She may be hot but she probably works the pole on amateur night.
Respect anyone who limits their drink intake to shots (or Pun's Hurricanes) all day and later wants to shotgun a beer or two. They will win. Unless that tall engineer guy shows up.
The bathrooms will be backed up for at least 30 minutes, plan accordingly. Eventually they may not even work. At which time you will rely on Plan B and find that bush you scouted earlier on the way down.
