Carnival King’s Banquet at Antoine's, 1946
Mardi Gras’s old-line secret societies vied for their own dining room at Antoine’s. Each of the rooms features lighted, glass cases displaying trappings of Mardi Gras royalty. Ball gowns, tiaras, and scepters of past queens are featured along with “ducals,” ball invitations, and other Mardi Gras favors.
