Travel Tuesday: The Ultimate Guide to New Orleans Bars for Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is an ambitious trip, for sure -- Fat Tuesday is all about indulgence. Culminating on March 5 this year, NOLA will flood with partiers, and just picking out locales for eating and drinking alone is a giant job. Bourbon Street on its own is home to a string of dive bars, cocktail lounges and venues just dying to get you to try their Hurricane. In between all of the beignets and Po Boy sandwiches you’ll be eating, these are the best bars to test your liver’s endurance at.
