Mardi Gras is closing in, and once again we’ll be nowhere near it. Maybe you’ll be there? Either way, here is a good story about a new “Big Chief” debuting this year:

So he got the blessing of other 7th Ward big chiefs. And he arranged for his dozen-member tribe to premiere Tuesday at 8 a.m. from The Porch, the 7th Ward cultural center on Pauger Street, where he and neighborhood children were assembling the tribe’s suits last week.
