The Krewe of OAK (which stands for "Outrageous and Kinky") gathers at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9 in front of its de facto den, the Maple Leaf Bar, for its annual costumed Carnival parade/pub crawl through the Carrollton and Riverbend neighborhoods. Its 2018 theme is "504play," but the subtitle is more of a krewe mission statement: "Putting the funk in dysfunctional." King Robustus XXXII Paul Bell and Queen Keri Lee lead a brass band and revelers on a route to Willow Street, Maple Street, Snake and Jake's Christmas Club Lounge and other bars before returning to Oak Street. Anyone can costume and march, but the post-parade ball is for krewe members only. 7 p.m. Feb. 9. 8300 Oak St.
