A coconut, or "golden nugget", caught at a Zulu parade is the most prized possession of New Orleans Mardi Gras. Since our anniversary is on Fat Tuesday, the same day that Zulu rolls, and given the powerful influence that the great city of New Orleans had and continues to have on the Buffett family, it was only fitting that the person that best exemplifies the spirit of LuLu's be crowned the Coconut of the month and be awarded their very own coconut!
