Baton Rouge has Mardi Gras fever! Balls, parties and parades, mixed in with the usual social scene, are keeping everyone busy. To make sure you don't miss any of the fun, check out Pam's Party Calendar at theadvocate.com. You can even start putting events set to take place this upcoming fall on your to-do list.
I also checked in with Pennington Biomedical Research Center and Visit Baton Rouge's CEO for this week's column.
