Tuesday Travel: Super Fat

It's a great day for parties: both the political and the celebratory kind. This year, for the first time ever, Mardi Gras and Super Tuesday fall on the same day, making for an especially auspicious overlap between the movement of the US political landscape and the celebration of a city that has struggled to move forward in recent years. Better yet, it's a reason beyond the weak dollar for the US to own its status as 2008's travel hot spot. Spend this "Super Duper Tuesday" (and your tourism dollars) in New Orleans, where Mardi Gras celebrations will carry on unabated, or scout out Super Tuesday events in cities around the country (barring that, head to the nearest bar and commandeer the TV). Because wherever you are, it's rare to find an opportunity to fight for your rights—and your right to party.
