Mardi Gras Masquerade

Join us for a fun night of socializing and dancing! We will have specialty cocktails (hurricanes!) and food...and of course BEADS! You MUST wear a mask to be permitted to the party (you can make your own pretty affordable from a craft store!) - it's only a theme party if people partake in the theme! Meet new friends, have fun, dance the night away in this all-inclusive night of MARDI GRAS! $10 admission includes the dance, all drinks (you may choose to tip your bartender), and food. What party can you go to and get everything included for just $10? Ours.


YOU MUST PRE-PURCHASE YOUR TICKET NO LATER THAN WED. FEB. 26. We will NOT be taking payment at the door!!! There will be no late ticket sales after the 26th and there are a limited amount of spots-so make sure you get your ticket as soon as you know you can make it. Visit this link and it will take you where you can purchase tickets: http://www.expressyourselfmadison.com/#!special-events/c1w2e

 Also, remember, no refunds are given so make sure you can attend!

      Hi. I was on my way and got involved in a fender bender.

      March 5, 2014

    • Jim P

      Gillian, sorry to hear about the fender bender. I sure hope you're well. Perhaps I will see you at a future meetup or on a dance floor, until then, keep smiling and stay well. :)

    Jenn did a great job with this event, it was fun to wear the mask for a night, dance and meet people. Thanks a lot!

    Ticketing disabled. Thank you to everyone who purchased your ticket(s)! Can't wait to see you Saturday! Remember, if you didn't purchase a ticket...you are not able to be admitted. Your RSVP here does not confirm your spot (as repeatedly mentioned in my comments) - so don't show up unless you have a ticket because you will not be able to attend! See you all soon! (Remember, you must also wear a mask to come!)

    This is the last few hours to purchase tickets! Link will be disabled at 6pm...no tickets can be purchased after that time. No exceptions! :o)

    Tickets are on sale now! Just an FYI this is NOT a meet-up specific to this group, it's open to the public as well. Tickets are advanced sale ONLY. A receipt will be e-mailed to you, and you'll be added to the official guest list. No refunds are given, make sure you can attend prior to purchasing! OTHER FAQ'S: What type of music will be played? We will have some traditional New Orleans style music in the beginning of the event-but will transition into today's favorite hits. What type of drinks will be served? We will have a selection of specialty cocktails to choose from, as well as N/A options. Is there parking? The Lake St. lot is open steps from our door. It's also only $5 to park overnight, so if you plan on celebrating w/ booze...have a DD or take a cab. Do I need to do anything else? YES. You will need to sign the liability waiver. You might find it obnoxious, but it's necessary.

    • Jenn

      Hi, John. I did receive your ticket purchase, but I don't see Donnas?

      February 23, 2014

  • Jamie

    Just bought my ticket, but there was nothing to print out except a receipt. Do I need to bring that? Or are tickets sent to my home, or is there just a guest list that I will be on once the tic is purchased? I just want to make sure I have everything the night of so I can get in. Thanks!

    February 21, 2014

    • Jenn

      Either print the paypal receipt, or bring your phone

      February 23, 2014

    • Jenn

      You will only need that if there is a problem w the guest list!

      February 23, 2014

  • Jenn

    Friendly reminder (again, I know) to get your tickets ASAP. There are a limited number available, so if you wait too long you might not get a chance to come! No tickets will be sold after Wed. and you MUST have a ticket to attend. RSVPing here doesn't ensure your spot-purchasing a ticket does! :o) Much love!

      February 15, 2014

    • Jenn

      You must pre-purchase 2 tickets and provide the names of your extra guests by Wed. Of next week. There is a limit to the amount of tickets available :)

      February 17, 2014

  • Jane

    Im sorry. Once again where do you buy the ticket? I don't see a link. BTW I have a second Mardi Grau mask if someone needs to borrow. Once my dog tried eating a 3rd since the feathers were real!

    February 15, 2014

    • Emma G.

    Aligator Juice, hurricanes, and dancing...OH MY! Don't forget to get your tickets! The sooner the better for purchasing purposes (we need to make sure we have enough goods! ;o) )

    February 14, 2014

  • David S

    I just paid for my ticket, but I find it hard to believe that $11 covers the party and an open bar. Unbelievable. Should be fun.
    David

    1 · February 11, 2014

    • Jenn

      You got it, dude. $11 covers everything - minus any tips you might want to throw down. I am not trying to make a profit on this, just cover expenses and time! :o)

      February 14, 2014

  • Jenn

    Don't forget to purchase your tickets in advance (see below for directions)! Tickets are on sale now, and the event is STRICTLY ticketed. You must purchase your ticket no later than Wed. Feb 26 to be admitted, no tickets will be sold after that date (we need to ensure we have enough supplies!).

    February 9, 2014

  • Emma G.

    How much are tickets?

    February 4, 2014

    • Jenn

      $10/piece ($11 total incl. taxes and fees)

      Emma, it's a phrase I heard a great deal growing up, from my father. It means, "Let the good times roll" So, if you did it, you're doing the right thing :)
