Mardi Gras Zone
The Mardi Gras Zone sits in a residential part of the Marigny neighborhood, and started out a Mardi Gras supply store—a place to get bulk boas and bulk beads. But after Hurricane Katrina wiped out the neighborhood’s chief grocery store, it morphed into a shop selling basic commodities like milk and bread (at first), before expanding its inventory based on customer requests. The result? An eclectic selection of goods, from shiny beads to exotic juices and dried fruits. The on-site deli has expanded, and serves up prepared meals to regulars. It’s a great supply stop if you’re planning to explore by bike or foot, and a stop offers an excuse to marvel at the minor strangeness of it all.
