We are definitely planning to come. May get there a bit late. Like Loop, we will be coming from another party. Looking forward to seeing some long time friends and meeting some new ones.

I suppose I should have wrote "attire" rather than "dress". However, it's Mardi Gras in the New Orleans French Quarter, and straight drag is not particularly uncommon, and to some extent, undressed is not uncommon either. One French Quarter Halloween I dressed as the Wicked Witch of the West (lovely wife was a flying monkey); was rather comfortable except for the purse and heels.
