Have I missed a thread?

It's Fat Tuesday, people!

Happy Mardi Gras!

As a home brewer and avid beer lover, I almost always give up alcohol for lent.  It helps the waistline and lets me and the world around me know that I am not addicted.

There's always Lowes and Menards.   8)

I haven't really decided what to try this year.  Lent isn't technically about "giving stuff up".  It's really about trying to make a change.  Maybe I should try to not be a grump old guy.   >:( ::) ;D

We had homemade gumbo for Fat Tuesday and then a couple Southern Comforts on the rocks. I'm giving up southern comfort for lent.

+ a bazillion. My one and only trip to NOLA was the spring before Katrina. I always meant to get back down there. Food was just incredible. Jonesing for some blackened redfish right about now.

We try to go to NOLA at least once, sometimes twice a year.  It's an easy flight from Tampa that gets in before 9am on a Friday so we can have a long weekend of eating and drinking then fly back Sunday afternoon.
