COME BACK TO NEW ORLEANS
Eve Ensler gets it! Ensler in New Orleans:

Also this month is a series of Irish, Italian, Irish-Italian, and Irish-Italian-Islenos parades and masses in honor of St. Patrick's and St.Joseph's days (lots more at Time Pic)
Finally, this week is also time for the St. Joseph's alters around the city (partial lists here and here, with a good explanation of the tradition at that second link).
For my friends from around the country, here are some photos of what St. Joseph's alters may look like.
And, of course, no New Orleans-related blog entry of mine is ever complete without a finger flip to those who want the city to just die.
