Missed Mardi Gras? There’s still no time like the present to join in New Orleans’ comeback, says IgoUgo charter member Jim Rosenberg. It helps that he knows how to experience Fat Tuesday even if there isn’t a parade in sight.

In his journal New Orleans: comeback means it’s time to come back, the traveler checks into a European-style hotel to check out the French Quarter and a Mardi Gras world full of February’s “oversized characters.”

His reviews offer colorful observations (“follow your nose” is one) alongside more specific tips, like signing up for the Cookin’ Cajun Cooking School to master a delicious “Slap Yo’ Mamma" chicken. He also dishes up enough picks for music, art, and beverages to help plan a private parade through New Orleans’ best offerings any time of the year.
