Mardi Gras is a few days a year. No big deal.

Actually Mardi Gras season lasts about a month, culminating into Fat Tuesday. But whoever said the party ends with Mardi Gras? You can stock up on beau coup beads on any given Tuesday night just doing a casual stroll through the French Quarter. Not to mention all the other festivals going on through the year - Bayou Classic, Jazz Fest, Satchmo Fest, Essence Fest, French Quarter Fest, conventions, etc etc etc.

NYC doesn't need festivals to keep it going through the night

Actually its a lot longer than a "few days a year". It begins in January and continues all the way till the night before Ash Wed.

Kind of ironic when you're saying a "few days" is "No Big deal" after you wrote this:

Wow, a few days in the past two years, nothing I'd really brag about.

I guess it really irks you to know that you can do things in other cities that you CAN'T do in NYC, like drink 24/7 at a bar, get over it.

Because I don't like to go out much, so what's the big deal? But when I do, I can hang out with rock stars until the wee hour of the morning, then go to work that morning

I don't care about bars that serve alcohol all hours of the night. I don't drink. Anyway, it's not like it's hard to get alcohol in NYC 24/7

Neither does N.O. A typical Monday night in the French Quarter in September probably mirrors a typical Saturday night in most city strips.

It sounds like NYC does sleep, just during the day.

^^good point, lol.

I just came back from hockey at around 12am. There were tons of people along Steinway St. here in Astoria. We were driving through the Egyptian and Moroccan section and there were bakeries still open at that hour. Bakeries, laundromats, pizzerias, dunkin donuts, you name it, it's probably open here.
