Artist Morgan Molthrop wanted to bring in the Carnival season with a special visitor this year. Alexander the Great decided to grace the city with his presence just in time for the Mardi Gras season, so Morgan gathered up the heads of krewes including Krewe du Vieux, 'tit Rex, Chewbacchus, and more to meet with him. We partied in his presence surrounded by New Orleans tunes, art, food, and, of course, some delectable King Cake. I couldn't think of a better way to party down pre-Fat Tuesday.
