Mardi Gras is upon us!  It seems like only yesterday we were pulling beads out of the trees on Clyde Fant Parkway - but it's almost time to do it again!

This will only be my second Mardi Gras season in the Shreveport / Bossier City Area, and must admit - I still have a lot of questions.  What is "Twelfth Night"?  Why do we eat "King Cake," and what does it mean if you get the baby?  This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unraveling the mysteries of Mardi Gras, and luckily - we have an expert named Don Tubbs to help us figure it out.  Not only is Don well versed in the ways of the Mardi Gras, he makes Mardi Gras magic at Tubbs Hardware with his "Extreme King Cakes."

To get to the bottom of the who, what, where, and why of the whole celebration, we called Mr. Tubbs.  He was more than ready.
