New Orleans? Founded in 1718. Cologne, Germany? Founded in 38 B.C. Germans have been celebrating the Lenten Karneval since the 13th century, and today it's one of Europe's biggest street festivals, with parades, huge floats, elaborate costumes, live music -- hmm, does this all sound strangely familiar? Get a taste of Karneval tonight at the German Embassy, where a black-tie event includes dancing to a 20-member German band, a Karneval performance by a traditional German folk group, a full buffet dinner, open bar with German beer and wine, karaoke, a DJ and more. Remember to dress up; If you don't want to put on the formalwear, masks and costumes are encouraged.
