Mardi Gras in Second Life

For those whom want to get in on the action for Mardi Gras, also known as Carnival (or the French translation of "Fat Tuesday"). the Second Life Destination Guide mentions two places. One is the "Mardi Gras at One Quarter French" - "Celebrate Mardi Gras at One Quarter French. On March 8, there will be a live musical performance at the Burlesque Club by Gina Gracemount, known for her smooth, bluesy style. Don't miss the French Quarter, Jackson Square, Bourbon Street and other familiar sites. " This event is at One Quarter French (66, 218, 23).

The other is the "Carnival in Germany in 3D" - "Celebrate Carnival, a multi-day event held through March 7 across Germany in 3D. Don't miss this exuberant party of craziness and pure fun as the traditional parade of funny wagons float from Cologne to Munich passing the in-between sims of virtual Germany." For this event, head to Virtuelles, Koeln (112, 202, 35).

Among the clubs having Mardi Gras events is the Queen of Hearts at Mystery. DJ Cameron will be playing, with a 500L contest prize. The club is located at Mystery, (79, 89, 23).

Mardi Gras originated from the practice in Catholic countries of people having events around the eating up the last of the fatty foods before the fasting of Lent.
