This is how we close out Mardi Gras in the Treme. After Zulu, the Indians, and all the hip hop and R&B acts finish performing under the bridge at Orleans and Claiborne (aka Black Mardi Gras), Rebirth Brass Band convenes at the Treme Cultural Center on St. Philip and Villere and rolls thru the hood for a good ole fashioned second line. Hands down, best way to end Carnival season.
And the best way to start Fat Tuesday IMO: the Skeleton Krewe at the Backstreet Cultural Museum. Deets after the jump:
Breakfast with the Northside Skull & Bone Gang
7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Coffee and Pastries
Open House all Mardi Gras Day
With special appearances by the
Baby Dolls, Mardi Gras Indians
and other Carnival revelers
In honor of Vera Touro, Antoinette K-Doe and Ernest 'Slipper Skipper Jr., Creator of 'Shot Gun Joe'
Food and drinks will be sold
