NOLA Fetes Demon Who Visits the Night Before St. Nick
Krampus is the stuff of nightmares. His name is derived from the German word Krampen, or to claw, and the night before Nikolaustag (Saint Nick’s Day) the beast creeps into town and beats the children into being nice. Of course, New Orleans will be feting this anti-hero with a mini-fest on December 5.
Parade Planner: D'etat, Hermes, Morpheus
Details, Routes, Weather
After a year of preparation, Carnival 2016 is nearing critical mass. Tonight, the big parades continue to roll as Mardi Gras grows closer. Hermes, D’Etat, and Morpheus are all set to march down the Avenue tonight. Click through for full details, weather, and routes.
The Lost Cause: Judge Denies Monuments Suit
A campaign to keep several prominent Confederate monuments is truly looking like a lost cause. On Friday (2.05), Orleans Parish Civil District Court Judge Piper Griffin declined to issue a preliminary injunction that would have blocked the City from removing statues honoring Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, P.T. Beauregard, and the Crescent City White League.

The Krewe de Lune Space Ball takes flight at The Carver Theater, and more! On this day in 1883, the first train service to travel from New Orleans to California departed. Now, more info on Carnival musings tonight.
The Big List of Bathrooms on the Parade Route
There may, in fact, be a place to pee on Mardi Gras Day, and even during the parades this weekend. In fact, there are actually hundreds of places to go along the parade route. Options span from the 250 free port-a-potties set up by the City to bars selling wristbands. Every year, NoDef compiles a list of options for relief flanking the Uptown route.
Parade Planner: Babylon, Chaos, Muses (Route, Weather, Details)
Be sure to bundle up, but you can leave your umbrellas at home. Tonight's Carnival festivities are a go. The Knights of Babylon kick off the evening's processions, followed by Chaos and the the much anticipated Muses, all on the traditional uptown route. Crowds will be large with the night's mix of old line and new school appealing to all tastes.
Today in NOLA: 2.04.16
Three parades are rolling down the Uptown route tonight. If you want to keep the party going, check out some Cajun music--with a twist--right off the route at the Prytania Bar. At the Prytania Theatre, the full slate of Oscar nominated shorts is screening.
Carnival Traffic Regulations Rev Up
Driving during Carnival is hard. Parking during Carnival is even harder. Tonight, the ominous “box” will hit Uptown. This weekend, roads in the Vieux Carré will morph into pedestrian malls.
Parade Planner: Nyx, Druids
Details, Routes, & Weather for Tonight's Parades
Carnival gets serious tonight, with Wednesday night's prime pairing kicking off the six day marathon leading up to the grand finale of Mardi Gras. Starting at 6:30 p.m., the Krewe of Ancient Druids and the Krewe of Nyx traverse the Uptown route. After a few years of poor weather, the forecast is looking up for the Wednesday riders.
Mayhem on the Mississippi
An empty oil-tanker wreaked havoc along the waterfront on Tuesday (2.03) evening. The Nordbay slammed into the docks and structures along the Mississippi River including Jefferson Parish’s water intakes and the French Quarter’s Governor Nicholls Street Wharf according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
