Mardi Gras Mambo: Krewe of Orpheus CLOSED

The Krewe of Orpheus derives its name from the mortal Orpheus, son of the god Apollo and the muse Calliope. The story of Orpheus illustrates the power of music in both this world and the next. Legend is that Apollo presented Orpheus with a lyre, which he played with perfection. His music was celebrated and cherished by all who heard it.
This Super Krewe was founded in 1993 by Harry Connick, Jr. and quickly became a "must-see" parade in New Orleans. Traditionally parading on Lundi Gras (the day before Mardi Gras), one of the staples of this parade is Leviathan, the first float ever to use fiber optic lighting.
When the parade ends, Orpheuscapade begins. This black tie event features several celebrity musical performances and ends with the parade entering the Convention Center to shower the crowd with beads, cups and doubloons.

Sticking with the musical theme, today's Mardi Gras Mambo sponsor is ChicBuds, a sweet treat for your ears! These Swarovski adorned retractable earphones were introduced in 2006. The initial line included 5 standard "flavors" but has since expanded to various casing colors, an iPod-Inspired Designer Series and Limited Edition Designs (including Breast Cancer, AIDS, ChicBlvd Fitness in partnership with American Heart Association).

ChicBuds are compatible with the iPod, iPhone, MP3 players, CD players and just about any listening device! The great thing about these earphones is that you can adjust the cord to 5 different lengths in order to accommodate any activity. No more tangled cords!

Gotta have it? ChicBuds generously offered us not one, but TWO pairs of ChicBuds! We will select one winner here and one winner from The Not So Blog, so make sure you enter in BOTH places!
