A must-see location to visit in New Orleans is the Backstreet Cultural Museum at 1116 Saint Claude in Treme.  It is ground zero of the true Mardi Gras.  Like a lot of folks from the north I’ve always had a very ignorant view of Mardi Gras as just a drunken party and thus have never wanted to attend.  Now that I’m learning more of what it means outside of the overblown activities in the Quarter I can’t wait to go.
