1998 – KdV gets Souled down the River

and

The Krewe of Drips & Discharges

presents

“The Absent Bar”

 

In 1998, with the theme “Souled Down the River”,

we decided to revolve our theme around a Bourbon Street bar

and French Quarter tradition – The Absinthe Bar, which had

recently “sold out” to a Daquiri Shop.

With 42 members, we all dressed as our favorite “drink” and decorated

the float to look like the Old Absinthe Bar.

We handed our the “Top Ten Drink List for 1998” to parade goers along the route.

This was the year we converted Krauss into a Class “A” Assembly Center

for one night and our Queen, Irma Thomas, put on a fabulous

show with Marcia Ball & Tracy Nelson,

performing their newly released CD, “Sing It”!
