book 'em Danno

after some hemming and hawing over the phone, we decide on the hotel booking and are settled into a fancy room at Renaissance Arts Hotel for Mardi Gras. On Tchoupitoulas Street at Canal, it seems to be on or just near the end of the parade route for the night parades of Lundi Gras.

something firm, determined. we WILL be walking in Mardi Gras!
