The Krewe of Spermes, a subkrewe in Krewe du Vieux, parades through the Faubourg Marigny.
The satirical Krewe du Vieux — as always, unencumbered by good taste — has issued its annual "Le Monde de Merde"
bulletin in advance of its Jan. 27 parade
, and its various subkrewes have come up with some hilarious parade themes.
The Seeds of Decline, for instance, will present "The Besh is Yet to Come," a $69.69 prix fixe dinner ("Tip included, like it or not") with specialties like "Lift Your Skirt Steak" and "See You in Court Bouillion." The Krewe of Comatose has a raw food menu including "Oysters Yenni," "Ceviche Frank Scurlock" and "Sashimi Chris Owens." And the Krewe of SPANK, which set the KdV bar in cleverness a few years ago with its "Dizneylandrieu"
float, will highlight the attractions in our "SPANKtuary City."
