Sat 2/14 Uptown 12pm Krewe of Tucks

The Krewe of Tucks first began in 1969 as a group of Loyola University students. The name "Krewe of Tucks" comes from the name of a now non-existent uptown pub where two college students decided to start their own krewe after failing at their attempt to become white flambeaux carriers.
