Mardi Gras Guide 2011 A special feature presented by WOLF Magazine | Compiled by: Melanie Ziems | Layout Design by: Kaitlin Riley | Photos by: ThinkStock

It’s that time of year again, Loyola. King cakes are popping up at grocery stores around town, Christmas lights are being replaced with purple, green and gold counterparts and the trees along St. Charles Avenue are being littered with beaded necklaces. Yes, it’s Carnival season, and with Mardi Gras just around the corner, Wolf Magazine is thrilled to present you with the 2011 Mardi Gras Guide. Check out parade routes, Mardi Gras trivia, schedules and more. This guide is designed to be pulled out, folded up and taken along on Mardi Gras adventures big and small. From everyone at Wolf Magazine, have a happy, fun and, most importantly, safe Carinval! Check out our last issue for the year, hitting stands March 4.

Mardi Gras Fun Facts The colors of Mardi Gras are traditionally purple, green and gold. Purple represents justice, green represents faith and gold represents power. The iced and colorfully sprinkled King Cake sold everywhere around Carnival season actually takes its name from the Three Kings of the Christian Bible. The baby inside? It’s meant to represent the baby Jesus. Traditionally, whoever receives the baby in their piece of cake is obliged to bring the king cake to the next party. Mardi Gras began in America in 1699, when French explorer Iberville launched an expedition up the Mississippi River. On March 3, 1699, the day France was celebrating Mardi Gras, he set up camp about 60 miles south of New Orleans. In honor of his homeland’s holiday, he named the place Point du Mardi Gras.

ResLife Important Info During Mardi Gras weekend, it costs $100 for any student to have an overnight guest. Guests must be same-sex, and there may only be three total students per residence hall room (i.e., two residents plus one guest). The fee pays for expanded 24-hour desk coverage from Friday-Tuesday of Mardi Gras weekend, including LUPD officers at each desk during the latest shifts.

Parade Schedule

The “Safe Way Home” program is a partnership with United Cabs. This is a voucher for a free cab ride, only good over Mardi Gras weekend. Cards with instructions will be at the front desks of the residence halls throughout the weekend, and they will only have a limited number, so students are encouraged to travel in groups and share rides.

URINATE IN THE STREETS.. It sounds silly, but it’s a great way to end up in the clink. Seek out a portable restroom or pay a few bucks to get a drink at the nearest bar (most won’t let you use the restroom for free).

GET NAKED.. It may seem the cliché thing to do during Mardi Gras, but in reality, it’s a quick way to embarrass yourself and the consequences can be mortifying as well. Nobody wants to explain a Lewd Behavior charge on their record to a potential employer.

GET IN A FIGHT.. The point of the holiday is to celebrate, not get into a drunken brawl in the middle of the street. TOUCH A HORSE. Does the phrase “assaulting an officer” mean anything to you? NOPD horses are considered just that, and any unwelcome contact with them can get you in just as much trouble as punching a human police officer. In fact, do yourself a favor and be sure to thank the NOPD officers for keeping you safe. Many of them are working overtime. GO TO JAIL. It should be a given, but be extra careful during Mardi Gras; if you get locked up any time after Friday, you won’t be arraigned until Ash Wednesday. That means you’ll spend the entire holiday behind bars, and not the kind that serve draft beer. PARK LIKE A JERK. Be very wary of No Parking signs, don’t park on the wrong side of the street and don’t park illegally. The meter maids get ticket-happy with all the on-street parking during parades.

Loyola’s Favorite Parade: Krewe of Muses Sure, we may be suckers for glittery shoes, but Muses is our favorite parade for more reasons than that. It is the only all-female organization to parade at night in New Orleans, and since its debut parade in 2000, it has grown to over 1100 members. The krewe represents the mythological Muses, Greek goddesses who were known to inspire artists. Their name means “reminder,” since early poets and philosophers did not have books to remember from, but the beautiful muses. The coveted “throw” at a Muses parade is a fabulously decorated shoe, given out by krewe members to the most enthusiastic parade-goers. They also throw traditional beads and other knick-knacks. The Krewe of Muses parade rolls on Thursday, March 3 at 6:30 p.m. on the traditional Uptown route.
