Competing Faux "Gras"

Spent yesterday afternoon tooling around the Super Bowl excesses in the Quarter. Woldenberg Park is set up in the style of a kind of mini French Quarter Fest with all the regular local music acts one would expect to find at such a thing.  

Here is Ingrid Lucia near the end of her set.

I also caught a bit of James Andrews who led the crowd in a round of "Who Dat." Because the crowd was pretty heavy with locals, this went over pretty well.  Today Jefferson Parish is offering free shuttle rides to Super Bowl visitors who may wish to take in the... um.. slightly less impressive musical line up at its "Family Gras" (literally Fat Family) celebration.  

On the other had, at least there are parades in Jefferson today... such as they are anyway.
