I would like to go out for Mardi Gras, and drink. I'm wondering how long I would have to wait after drinking to breastfeed again.

depends entirely on how much you are planning to drink. If you are going to get wasted you need to wait the full hour to hour and a half PER drink before you want to nurse again. If you are just having a drink an hour you should be perfectly fine to nurse as soon as you want/need to. If you are overly worried just pump before you go drinking so the baby has something to eat. You don't need to pump and dump though, the alcohol will automatically work its own way out of your milk, although if you go a long time without nursing you may become engorged.
