And I do mean all.. rawr.
Actually, I'll be taking it easy, as far as I'm planning. But my friend M and I did head out last Saturday to take in some fun Mardi Gras music.
For which I braved the snow and the ice and the cold. In flats. And a polka dot skirt.
Fashion is pain, right?
Hm.. I'm sure I've gotten that wrong.
Nevermind. Anyway, we had a ginormo snowstorm on Friday. Which, if you're like me, was glorious. I adore the snow. We got something like 8 inches or so.
Which can never be a bad thing. Amirite? Or amirite?
I snapped a few pics (of course).

|This was around 3 AM when I went out to play in the snow before |
all the NYers messed it up.
|Trying to not freeze to death.|
|I'm short. That snow is up to my shins.|
|And another Instagram photo.|
Free admission, live music, men in sparkly jackets and strong drinks. What's not to love?
It was fantastic and I had so much fun.
|Before the show started, M and I snagged a couch.|
|Lights down. Better to show off the jackets with.|
|I'm sure you're familiar with my love of all things shiny.|
|Seriously, the only way this band could be more Mardi Gras was if|
they were flashing tits and collecting beads.
I'm definitely going to hit up the BAMcafe again. They put on all different kinds of shows from music to dance to comedy.
After the show, M and I decided we weren't yet done drinking (it was only 11:30) so we walked over a few blocks to grab some snacks and more alcohol at this great bar called The Alchemy. Another place I can't recommend enough (grab an order of spare ribs, yum!).
Finally at about 2, we called it a night and headed home. Because, really.. after all that, what else is there left to do?
