Mardi Gras will be back at the Convention Center on Saturday, Feb 15, 2014 and I thought it could be a lot of fun to go check out.
A couple of members mentioned it and tell me they had such a great time when they went last year, it's got my curiosity up. I have never been there yet. Do you want to go with me to see what all the talk is about???
Famous for their beads and bobbles, food, and drink, I would love to go try their Cinnamon Whiskey called Fireball.
There is entertainment all night long from 7:15 pm with a stunning array of a cast of characters that will keep you entertained in grand style!
From costumed characters to painted models – showgirls & showboys - to entertainers dancin' in "the streets!".
They invite you to come in full costume and join the parade! I don't know I will be in full costume, but I am certainly going to make the most of the experience. The Zydeco sound is relentless, pulsating and funky, and easily appealing to fans of all genres. You will be dancing and celebrating before you know it.
Come for dinner and experience great dining at their large Food, Oyster and Wine Bar. Or simply drinks!!!
They boast we should try their AMAZING new Entrees – Bourbon Flamed Garlic Pepper Shrimp and New Orleans Rose Farfalle Pasta or our Very Popular Mardi Gras Sampler Platter.
I don't know I will be eating a full dinner there, but I certainly would like to try their cuisine. Are you as curious as I am?

WE SHALL MEET... on the 2nd Floor of the Convention Center by the escalators for 5:45pm.
***I will wait there till about 6:10pm, then after that head upstairs to find a table(s).
If you miss me there, you will have to find us inside. I have not been to this before so I don't know where we will be sitting yet. It is Rush seating.
I have been told that you are not allowed to bring your coat in, and on the 2nd level there will be people taking your ticket at the base of the escalator that goes to the 3rd floor.
If you are wearing a coat, they won't let you pass and will send you to the coat check area for an additional charge. A suggestion was made to park in the indoor parking and leave your coat in the cars trunk. So now you have a choice and are forwarned.
