Well, at least there's always Mardi Gras to look forward to this week - does anyone know the name of the group that was doing the second line on the neutral ground up St. Charles last night? They were decked out in costumes, and I saw a LOT of tutus - they gave us fabric roses and seemed to be doing a bar crawl.
Whoever they are, they seemed to be having a lot of fun, and they definitely made our trek with the collie a lot more interesting.
