A small batch limited edition… delectably fresh Mardi Gras King cake, chicory coffee, spilled Sazerac, Spanish moss, rusted iron, and Louisiana vetivert root. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Midnight adjourns the festival.
The couples climb the crowded stair,
And out into the warm night air go singing fragments of the ball.
Close-folded in desire they pass, or stop to drink and talk awhile
In the cafes along the mile from Bullier's back to Montparnasse:
The "Closerie" or "La Rotonde", where smoking, under lamplit trees,
Sit Art's enamored devotees, chatting across their `brune' and `blonde'.
