by Stacy Coco

Krewe of Cork Parades Puns Through French Quarter
The Krewe of Cork turns 14 this year, which means they are of legal drinking age in New Orleans. The walking winos lined up on Royal Street this afternoon at 3 p.m. to kick off a long night of Carnival parades. Punny costumes from "cork jesters" to "Rhone Burgundy" packed the block. While the foot krewe was far from stingy, there were more concerned with sipping on their goblets and glasses than sharing beads with the crowd. Click through for more pictures.

Sounding it Out
Sound Ordinance Amendments to Focus on French Quarter; Contract Renewal Draws Accusations

Rock 'n Roll Marathon Hits the Streets Sunday
Carnival parades aren't quite here, but the City is still shutting down the streets for the masses this weekend. Thousands of runners will be lacing up Sunday morning (Feb. 2) for the Rock 'n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon. More than 10,000 runners are expected to cover the 26.2-mile and 12.1-mile races. The runs step off at 7 a.m. from Camp and Poydras St. The pounding of the pavement won't be the only sound, however, as a band will be playing on every mile of the course.
