Mardi Gras Moola Is a Parade Throw That’ll Save You Money
METAIRIE – In Orleans Parish, it’s illegal for parading Carnival krewes to throw anything of value from their floats. No so in Metairie, where Jefferson Parish is unveiling a new Mardi Gras throw that will be redeemable for discounts and special offers at Metairie businesses.
Parade-goers who catch one of the special wooden doubloons will be able to exchange for all sorts of goodies, including a free “Bang Bang Shrimp” from Bonefish Grill, 25 percent off the cost of a drink at French Truck Coffee … or even a deal on your next procedure at Jansen Plastic Surgery MediSpa.
