If couldn't spend this year's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, then downtown's Bloody Gras may have been your next best option. "Be forewarned, mortals; it is the Devil’s party, and dark mischief is afoot," the event's website warns. The party took place in the Arts District, and saw a magician, sideshow acts, burlesque dancers, and a dixie band perform. If you didn't get any beads, that was your fault.
