How To Throw a Good Party

On Labor Day weekend (August 31-September 4), Southern Decadence takes over New Orleans’ French Quarter. Dubbed “Gay Mardi Gras,” the massive annual celebration—last year 200,000 participants made their way through—features a parade, guest DJs like Kidd Madonny and Robbie Leslie, and the free outdoor concert Bourbon Street Extravaganza, starring R&B singer Deborah Cox. Parties, of course, are a major part of the action, raging at all-night hotspots like the bi-level Bourbon Pub and Parade.
