Mardi Gras visitors spent $106 million on hotels and other things in 2011, according to Weiss. Among the other things are lots of souvenirs. Besides the bling, visitors scooped up such items as New Orleans Famous Pralines (set of 4) for $12, Preservation Hall T-shirts, about $20, a Preservation Hall Music CD, about $25, and the cookbook, Breakfast at Brennan's and Dinner Too, for $35.
