Mardi Gras Day is Also Sweet 16th Birthday for New Orleans Based Registrar Directnic - King Cakes Dispatched to Spread Party Far Beyond Bourbon Street

New Orleans based Directnic.com is one of the industry's longest standing domain registrars. In fact today they are celebrating their 16th birthday - a landmark occasion that coincides nicely with their home town's biggest annual party - and one of world's most famous spectacles - Fat Tuesday at Mardi Gras

Like Mardi Gras, Directnic, who has customers around the globe,  knows no bounds. So they decided to spread some Sweet 16th sugar far beyond Bourbon Street by sending out some gigantic King Cakes for others to enjoy. The one we received came from a famous maker of the traditional New Orleans treat - Manny Randazzo - in a box (complete with beads) big enough for two large pizzas to sit side by side. 

Above: My wife Diana cuts into the King Cake. I got the little plastic baby inside which is supposed to presage "luck and prosperity." I will consider myself lucky if I don't gain 5 pounds after eating this - only then will I believe it really works!

Above: The King Cake was too big for two people but fortunately Howard & Barbara Neu were with us when it was time to dig in! Even with four we barely put a dent in it but we sure had fun trying!

Congratulations to Directnic on your long, successful run and a special thank you to their Business Development Director (and a long time friend of ours from Down Under), Mike Robertson, for bringing a taste of New Orleans and Mardi Gras to our door.
