Box of Wine Parade Switches to Tea For Saturday Fundraiser


Superkrewes may be the engine of Carnival but the beating heart of the season lies in the small walking krewes that we happen upon without even planning on it. One such merry band, Box of Wine, doesn't even require you to leave St. Charles Ave. The krewe notoriously marches on the main Uptown parade route between the morning parades and Bacchus on the Sunday before Fat Tuesday. On Saturday night, the krewe is giving everyone a teaser of the revelry to come, and a chance to help them pay their bills at a Julia Street gallery.

 

The event, being billed as High Tea, will be held at L'entrepôt (627 Julia), and feature tea, hot cocoa, food and music by Monica McIntyre for a $25 entrance fee. Once inside, those who come will be regaled with a dozen Box of Wine beads, and the tightly-held parade route map. Festivities start at  5 p.m.

 

Advance tickets are available at Carmo Cafe (527 Julia St), Bacchanal Wine (600 Poland Ave). and Miss Claudia's (4204 Magazine St.)
