No need to travel all the way to Bourbon Street of New Orleans when all you have to do is walk down your local street. Many clubs across the nation are making a hot gay Mardi Gras party this year.
The Parliament House in Orlando brings out the beads (the ones that go on your neck not rear), body painting, tattoos, and floats. Stilt Walkers, Female Impersonators, Hunky Men, Sexy Women and one Chinese Dragon just to name a few of the things they are mentioning for their party. The P-house resort is located at 410 N. Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando if you have not had a chance to check it out. The events they throw outside and the go-go dancers in their courtyard area are always unexpected fun.
Dallas is host to another annual Mardi Gras night called Carnivale to be held at Station 4 nightclub. This is not a block party like their highly popular Halloween and Gay Pride street events but it should be a reason to go out. Kristine W. will be performing her hits â€œStrongerâ€ and other #1 dance hits. Expect a big crowd inside S4 since they recently closed down the TMC (Throckmorton Mining Company) while it is being remodeled.
If you dare to see the tits flashing and frat boys jumping up and down for beeds yourself then hit up the real NOLA (not that much to be seen). The official Mardi Gras is held February 1-5 in New Orleans with the Fat Tuesday being February 5. Put on your beads and party like a rock star!
