Looks like they're doing...something? for Mardi Gras. As a new UOAP - what can I expect?

Food, music and parades. Doubt many get to ride this year but the floats are authentic. Atmosphere is great

Thank you. This will be my 1st Mardi Gras at UO!
While the format is similar to food and wine, they do this one thing that is different. They do a Bayou Boil (Crawfish Boil) $60 that is enough food for 2-3 people and is very good.



Some Beignets for dessert and that's a fine meal.

Crawfish are super-unappealing to me. I can't with the heads.

We are UOAPs' from Pennsylvania. Three years ago we applied to the float lottery and were selected to ride. It was a great experience to get backstage and join a bunch of other passholders on the float. They provided boxes of beads for us to toss to the crowds. It was something we'll never forget. My wife, daughter, and two of her old Disney College roommates rode on the float.

After you do that you have to watch the parade from the street. It goes so fast when you are slinging beads that you don't get much of a view. So much fun though

Beignets and Beer > Food and Wine.

Crawfish, PoBoys, and some Jambalaya ain't bad either. Now if they just had Lucky Dogs.......somethin about those. Maybe the Handgrenades make them taste better. Throw in an ACME Oyster joint and some Escargot (like Muriel's) and we're good.
