I met up with Jen, Jeri & Kim at the Thirsty Monk, for a couple pints o' porter. Mmmm. Just enough brew to not really know it was as cold as it was! :o)
The Mardi Gras parade went all through the city, and ended in Prichard Park.
Me: "Hey man, I love your costume! It's kind of like Alf meets the Wuzzles. Do you know who the Wuzzles were?"
This dude: "Sure do. I'm a Fervert."
Drummers in Prichard Park--made for some sweet dancin' and hoola hoopin' tunes!
Woot! Woot! Look at my skirt and my beads!
So this dude was like, "give me your camera so I can take a picture of you, so you can prove you were here. Don't worry...I'm a professional." Haha!
A parade display for Budha Bagels on Merriman.
This was the queen of the ball-- she made her entire dress from old plastic bags!
Post parade, I went to an after party at the Grey Eagle. They had a tradiational cajun band and cooking. And thought the food lines was awfully long, it sure was tasty-- fried green tomatoes, red beans & rice, shrimp gumbo...mmmm!
Weee! It was so much fun! Did I mention that I love this place?
