Profs and Pints: Mardi Gras 101
You don't have to enroll at Tulane to learn how to party like a ragin' cajun. Let Kim Stryker, an independent folklorist and ethnographic researcher who teaches about folklore and folklife at George Mason University, give you a deep understanding of Mardi Gras and other Carnival traditions. You'll learn the scholarly theories surrounding such festivals, the basics of Mardi Gras parade etiquette, the origins of the Mardi Gras Indians, just why you'll find a baby in the King Cake, and the exact meaning of terms such as "second line" and "krewe."

When Fat Tuesday arrives you'll be able to go at it like a pro. Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.)
