When the clock struck midnight in the nation's capital Saturday night, it signaled the end of the Mystick Krewe of Louisianians' Mardi Gras Ball but the beginning of Queen Anna Reilly's Celtic-themed breakfast. Among the things we all celebrated was the surprise announcement by King Todd Graves, founder and CEO of Raising Cane’s, that he and wife Gwen have added a new member to their family -- Raising Cane III, an adorable yellow Lab puppy that he hoisted high to the delight of revelers.

After welcoming guests to the breakfast with her king, Anna and the krewe princesses and Louisiana festival queens took to the dance floor and, eventually, the stage to rock the room with the band. They lured the older generation out with a not-to-be-resisted set of Motown hits -- we showed the kiddoes how to do it old-school style!
