Every year in New Orleans when it’s too hot to really do anything outside New Orleans Hash House Harriers come together to throw an event that I like to call summertime mardi gras in red, minus the floats and beads… Ok so it’s not really like Mardi Gras, however, there is a lot of cross-gender dressing. The point of it all is that everyone, men, women and maybe children (depending on what kind of parents you are…) don a red dress or outfit and parade around the quarter getting ridiculously drunk. The idea is you pay a certain amount of money, it goes to a charity, and at select bars you drink for free.
Whether you pay, or not, it is a great time for a good cause. The quarter becomes a sea of red drunken fools.
Here’s some evidence.
