Gayle, Breland, Elaine, and I went to the Endymion Extravaganza at the Superdrome last night; black tie attire; 14,000+ in attendance on the floor; about 30 incredibly beautiful floats; 2000+ riders throwing ? tons of beads, some whose aim was dead on. An experience beyond imagination. Will post more of the evening (and morning!) events, see Gayle's Mardi Gras gallery: http://www.pbase.com/gpc/mardi_gras.
