Well, here we are, Fat Tuesday. My bet is that half of New Orleans is drunk by now. Where I am on the West coast of the U.S. there's only a few hours before this whole Mardi Gras thing is over and, for the believers, laying low and staying clean takes over. But let's not forget good ol' Hawaii who still have a few hours to celebrate, at least the half dozen Hawaiians that even give a shit about Mardi Gras.

So here we go, a random assortment of New Orleans shake. Some of these are better known than others, but all have that certain N'Orleans beat. You might already be too in the bag to deal with them. Not my problem.
