Krewe of Cork Rolls On Down the Quarter!

It was a gorgeous day for a parade!  And parade we did!   On Friday, the Krewe of Cork paraded through the streets of the French Quarter for it’s 13th year.  It was quite a celebration with the sun shining and the champagne and wine flowing.  Our Grand Marshall was Jean-Charles Boisset who is the maker of some of our favorite champagnes.  Our glasses were never empty!   Our costume theme this year was the Grape Gatsby, and the color was perfect because it did not show all the wine spills that occured throughout the day!  It is hard to march through the streets of the  French Quarter dancing to the sounds of a brass band with a full goblet of wine without spilling a drop… in fact, it is impossible.

You gotta dance when the band plays… and they always play!
