Mardi Gras fun.

How fun is this? The nice folks at Findlay Market have invited me to join this year’s Mardi Gras festivities on Sunday, March 2, as Mardi Gras Queen. Cincinnati downtowner and blogger extraordinaire Bob Schwartz will be Mardi Gras King. I’ve never been Queen of anything, so this is kind of a deal for me. Hooray!

I’m getting into the Mardi Gras mood, scouting for fun costume and makeup ideas and plotting out a New Orleans-style recipe to share here, which I’ll do early next week.

The festivities will include jazz and zydeco music, local beers and free food—and, of course, beads and throws. If you’re in Cincinnati, and if you’re as tired of this winter as I am, if you’re looking for something fun to do to celebrate Mardi Gras—will you join us at the Market on March 2 starting at 10:00?

  1. Congrats – and may the Queen Coronation celebration begin! Does this make Rob a Prince, Duke or Jester?

  2. I LOVE that you are Mardi Gras queen! They could not have picked a better one. So happy for you.
    Can I be part of your court?
    We need to see pics. Get Rob on this…
