Super Bowl Commercials & Mardi Gras

Super Bowl Commercials & Mardi Gras

This week:

Super Bowl Commercials

Balance.  We seek it in life; we seek it in athletics.  This year’s Super Bowl was super fun – if you like offense-rich games! Really, who doesn’t like big plays by big playmakers on the game’s biggest stage?  But the commercials!  Usually they’re the super highlight of the super hype, but I found myself not really wowed by anything I saw between the on-field action. A couple of upcoming movies look promising:  Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Jurassic World.  Who bet on this year’s contest being a great game with mediocre commercials, instead of the other way around?  

Looking ahead:

Mardi Gras

Only a few more days until Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday – the final day of revelry before Ash Wednesday and 40 days of Lent (darn, no steak dinner for Valentine’s Day!). Can’t make it to New Orleans?  One of the great things about living in Orlando is you don’t need to go anywhere to celebrate! Universal always does a huge Mardi Gras event for, like, two months that pays homage to the original in NOLA.  And there’s yummy Cajun cuisine at King Cajun Crawfish and Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen to grab crawfish, gumbo, or étouffée before a lean Lenten season!
