As you may know, today is the final day of Carnival, the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. It’s a day when brass bands down in New Orleans, as well as around the world, are joining with everyone else to party in the streets like there’s no tomorrow.
Here’s a toast to our street band sisters and brothers everywhere, from our quick but determined outing at our Fat Sunday Open House this past weekend:
Thanks to everyone who braved the snow and cold to make it to our celebration. For those who couldn’t come, we missed you, but hope we’ll see you again when the weather calms down.
And yes, we’ll be open as usual this coming Sunday, Feb 22, 3-5 pm. Hope to see you all there.
