Stop what you are doing and run get your phone. See the Basin Street Records cover in the lower right of the photo? It doesn't get more up close, in the street, celebrate Mardi Gras like a local (shameless plug for friends' link) than this CD. And all this booty comes with the first 10,000 Haydel's King Cakes ordered... seriously Kermit Ruffins, Los Hombres Calientes, Henry Butler and Irvin Mayfield kickin' it up like the parade is rolling and the red beans and rice are cooking. Arthur Hardy's Parade guide...beads , doubloons...cake..... are you dialing or what? Have you ever been to a daytime parade on St. Charles? Heard St. Aug's marching band? Begged a total stranger for beads? Been to Rio? Venice? Are we talking culture here or what? And there's cake too!!
My totally tacky piece o' cake painting au demain....
