Happy Fat Tuesday!

Mardi Gras – 2009

We went, we froze our booties off, we had a great time!
I don’t have our pictures uploaded to a photo website yet, so I can’t share them with you. However, I can share this information with you. . .

Interestingly, not one person was cited for indecent exposure this year.
Here’s the official run down of charges:
68 Minors in Possession of Alcohol
17 Urinating in Public
12 False Identification
4 DUI’s
4 Supplying Alcohol to Minor
3 General Peace Disturbance
2 Resisting Arrest
2 Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer (an officer was punched and an officer was spit on while attempting to take a man into custody)
1 Selling Liquor without a License
1 3rd Degree Assault (a man got into a fight with a friend and punched him)
1 Property Damage (a man got into a fight at a friend’s Soulard home and damaged a window at the home)
1 Marijuana Possession

You can find them all here. But, we saw this guy. My friend Krystal even got her picture taken with him. He was hilarious! πŸ™‚

And, in case you didn’t get your fix of Mardi Gras this past weekend, there is ONE more day left. Tonight is the Fat Tuesday parade.

    It was so chilly on Saturday! I would have needed A LOT of booze to keep me warm down there.
