Carnival got going this weekend with some bigger krewes rolling Uptown. But the real show was Downtown, where creativity abounded in the form of costumed canines, Sci-Fi enthusiasts and miniature floats by the grown-up versions of the people who always made the best dioramas in the fifth grade. Also this week: the city prepares for Super Bowl, Chris Paul isn't so into the New Orleans Pelicans and Trina Edwards contemplates eating.
