empress of the universe
Empress of the Universe Antoinette K-Doe called home
Posted by: Alison Fensterstock in In Memoriam
In the early hours of Mardi Gras Day, Antoinette K-Doe, widow of the legendary Ernie and proprietor of the Mother-in-Law Lounge, passed away. Last Mardi Gras Day, Mrs. K-Doe had entered the hospital for heart failure, but recovered and was quickly back behind the bar.
Mrs. K-Doe was a local legend and as proprietor of the Lounge and steward of K-Doe’s memory, an international icon. Details to follow as they become available. At this time, it’s not clear if the lounge will be open to revelers and mourners today.
