NolaVie is self-described life and culture blog in New Orleans – so the month of Feburary was a busy time for the site. NolaVie implemented a special section of their site to organize their 25+ Mardi Gras stories, ranging from King’s Cake cocktail recipies to photo galleries from some lucky float riders. Other articles like Five tips for making better bad Mardi Gras decisions showed that NolaVie was willing to report on the more debaucherous side of Mardi Gras.

NolaVie co-founder Renee Peck live-tweeted the event, proving that journalism in New Orleans can be one of the most fun jobs around.
