Julia McNabb is the founder of The Muff-a-lottas, a Carnival marching club. McNabb originally founded the club in 2009 as an all women’s club, but now the Muff-a-lottas allow men to join. "The men are known as Bun Warmers…but can be elevated to the status of Po-Boy," McNabb says. Although the popular New Orleans muffuletta sandwich has its roots in Sicily, the Muff-a-lottas marching club costumes have a 1950s diner theme. According to McNabb, however, many club members are Sicilian and the St. Joseph’s Day parade is their favorite parade to march in. The Muff-a-lottas first 2011 parade will be Druids on Wednesday, March 2. Listen here.
