Thanks for the memories Tom

My San Diego buddy (and fellow former New Orleanian) Tom H. just emailed this pic at 10 p.m. West Coast time - midnight New Orleans time - under the heading, "It's over."

Midnight marked the official end of Mardi Gras in the Crescent City when a shoulder-to-shoulder line of cops started its traditional march down Bourbon Street, clearing the street of revelers and ordering everyone home.

Tom took this classic Fat Tuesday photo a few years ago around midnight on Mardi Gras in a gay French Quarter bar called Good Friends. Yes, that's a condom wrapper on the floor.
