Here’s what I know about Mardi Gras:
There will be bright, shiny décor, beads, costumes and outfits.
There will be jaw-dropping performances by The Lindsays – sword swallowing, fire dancing, contortion and circus skills.
There will be deep fried pickles, sweet potato fries, fried oyster po’ boys, gumbo, Louisiana pasta, jambalaya, freshly shucked oysters and peel-and-eat shrimp. (Hint: come very hungry)
There will be Love Potion and Oyster Shots (among other signature cocktails).
There will be a wine bar.
There will be dancing to the electrifying sounds of Dwayne Doopsie and the Zydaco Hellraisers, brought to us directly from New Orleans.
And beyond that…anything goes!
You gotta see it for yourself! I have two pairs of tickets for Saturday, Feb. 14. Comment below and let me know if you’re most intrigued by the sights, tastes or sounds of Mardi Gras – and you could be headed off to the New Orleans in our own downtown!
Two winners will be announced Tuesday, Feb. 10.
