The Super Bowl, and the New Orleans Saints' underdog victory is old news, but the after party is only now hitting full stride as Mardi Gras sweeps through San Francisco. Find some beads and prepare yourself for the possibility of a midweek hangover because hurricanes are flowing all over The City. Scott Street will do its best Bourbon Street impression with a Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Party starting at 4pm, and Ruby Skye will carry on in similar fashion with a Mardi Gras happy hour featuring live music and a party that will stretch into to the early-morning hours. Sloane nightclub is also joining the revelry with a night of beads, masks, shots, and the Desired Temptations dancers. And that's only Tuesday! Keep the party going with Fringe, the indie music dance party, or take it down a notch with the Freaks, Punks, Skanks & Cranks film series. Get your snap on with the Snap-a-licious Drag Show and get down to the sounds of techno and house at the TekAndHaus party. Unwind at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, and learn how to impress your German friends with a free Sauerkraut Making Workshop. As they say down in N'awlins this time of year, "Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!"
