Party Central: Some ‘Enchanted’ Evening

The Krewe of Orpheus held its annual cocktail party for the officers and lieutenants of the krewe at the Uptown home of Michael Murphy and Brent Becnel. The theme of the 2014 parade — Orpheus’ 21st — is “The Enchanted World.” The krewe, founded by Harry Connick Jr., has had many celebrities and monarchs as riders, including Sandra Bullock, Quincy Jones, Anne Rice, Whoopi Goldberg, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Coolidge, James Brown, David Copperfield, Hilary Swank, Cyndi Lauper and Mariska Hargitay.
