On February 5, 2011, we attended our fifth consecutive Mardi Gras Mall Ball. Before the ball we went to a friend of a friend’s house for a pre-party. After leaving the pre-party we went to Cordova Mall for the ball. Susan got a new dress for this year’s ball. I actually saw the dress while working Dillard’s and wanted Susan to wear it. I had to get a new tuxedo after loosing weight. My old tuxedo swallowed him whole. This was my first time wearing a tuxedo with a traditional tie rather than bow tie. There didn’t seem to be as many people at the Mall Ball as previous years. We enjoyed many of the entrees. My favorite was the crawfish étouffée from the Oar House. Susan’s had two favorite entrees. She loved the sushi from the Fish House and the crab cakes from Landry’s. Here is a photograph of us that Aaron took before we left for the ball.
