Cafe Du Monde Coffee Stand

The Original Cafe Du Monde Coffee Stand was established in 1862 in the New Orleans French Market. The Cafe is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It closes only on Christmas Day and on the day an occasional Hurricane passes too close to New Orleans.

The Original Cafe Du Monde is a traditional coffee shop. Its menu consists of dark roasted Coffee and Chicory, Beignets, White and Chocolate Milk, and fresh squeezed Orange Juice. The coffee is served Black or Au Lait. Au Lait means that it is mixed half and half with hot milk. Beignets are square French -style doughnuts, lavishly covered with powdered sugar. In 1988 Iced Coffee was introduced to the cafe. Soft drinks also made their debut that year.

Saturday Night Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball

For the elite and stuffy, a Mardi Gras Ball is a black tie event to celebrate the exclusivity of their particular Mardi Gras Krewe. For many others, a Mardi Gras Ball is a much more casual affair, where the dress is expected to be outlandish, anonymous, and often flagrantly lewd.

Start thinking of something to wear!
