After a brief respite thanks to the Krewe of Super Bowl XLVII, Carnival is back in full swing. We got super krewes with celebrity riders, satirical floats, marching bands and all those fine folks camping out for Endymion (shout out #kreweofchad). Also this week: food trucks, residual Super Bowl celebrity gossip, Kelly Clarkson, New Orleans representing on the Grammys and more.
