Yes, this is the opening weekend of the Winter Olympics, and that’s mighty cool. But even more importantly, it’s the big Mardi Gras weekend. Sadly, nobody around Greater Nippertown is throwing a parade, but at least you don’t have to jet down to New Orleans to get an injection of fabulous Fat Tuesday music.
