Krewe of Endymion
Rolling into Saturday, today at 4:15 pm we have the super Krewe of Endymion! In case you were wondering, “Super Krewes” are defined by their “stunning use of visuals and floats laced with brand new technology and celebrity Grand Marshals.” As per the parade’s official website, after the floats go by they host a concert in which the likes of Steven Tyler, Pitbull, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and Maroon 5 have played in prior years. So obviously, this is a parade you cannot miss! The Krewe starts at the intersection of City Park Ave and Orleans Ave, and ends turning on LaSalle Street and into Champions Square (at the Super Dome). To see the full route, click here!
Juan’s Flying Burrito
After you party all day, you’re going to need to refuel. So where do we recommend you go? Juan’s Flying Burrito. Located at 515 Baronne St, this restaurant is the perfect place to go for a quick and delicious Tex-Mex creation. As the name suggests, they’re know for their burritos. This time around, however, we suggest that you go with the Tofu Tacos! These bad boys consist of “Marinated Tofu on Corn Tortillas dressed with jack cheese, lettuce, and salsa” and are the cure for post-parade hunger.

We hope to see you out there! And as always, keep it local this Mardi Gras Season and if you’re drinking, look out for brands such as Old New Orleans Rum, anything from Donner-Peltier (such as Oryza, Rougaroux, and LA1), Cathead Vodka, and Crescent Vodka! It’s the best time of the year, enjoy it locally!
