Carnival Time!

Speaking of things other than the NFC Champions New Orleans Saints (don't you just love saying that: the NFC Champions New Orleans Saints!), the Super Bowl, New Orleans elections, and tonight's State of the Unionized Speech and Drinking Game, there are other goings-on in the Crescent City. Namely -- Carnival Season!

The irreverent Krewe du Vieux will roll through the Quarter on Saturday (the only Krewe with permission to roll in the Quarter), taking the following route. Just exactly how they depict their theme ("All Fired Up," because their den almost burned to the ground last summer!) is kept under wraps until parade day, but you can bet it'll not be "family-friendly!"

The weather is supposed to be really cold by southeast Louisiana standards so we may skip it, but I do want to go! We shall see.
