Get out of Mardi Gras free card

            People throw parties continuously during the Carnival season, especially if they live on a parade route. Nothing attracts partygoers like free food and beer and a place to pee!
            In Lafayette, Cajun Bail Bonds sits on prized parade real estate, at the corner of Vermilion and Lafayette streets, where all of Lafayette’s parades roll down and turn. This choice corner attracts hoards of people, and to keep them all happy on Mardi Gras Day Cajun Bail Bonds provides them with lunch.
            “Come out, grab a burger and get you some Cajun Bail Bonds swag,” they announced on their Facebook page for their 14th Annual Mardi Gras Cookout. “T-shirts, coozies, pens...and as always everything is free.”
            What’s the catch, to use a Mardi Gras pun?
            The year we stood in front of Cajun Bail Bonds — and enjoyed a really good hamburger — we also received their business card. Maybe those free burgers pay off in the end — with clients!
