The Bourbon Street Mardi Gras Party Rooms:
“The Burlesque Room” Hosts: Roxie & Foxie. New Orleans has a history of appealing to the carnal senses! Burlesque has a rich history beginning in 18th century Europe as an entertainment form by the lower class poking fun at plays & operas watched by the upper class. By the 1860's, burlesque in Britain showcased curvaceous, semi-undressed ladies which was highly appealing in that strict Victorian climate. By the 1940s and 1950's, nightclubs lined Bourbon Street. Over 50 different burlesque shows, striptease acts and exotic dancers could be found there. Today's Burlesque has more to do with bright colors, glamour, corsets, and lacey garments with the gigantic element being the "TEASE" (not stripping). Come and enjoy the appropriate drink of our delightful room--the Mardi Gras Kiss, made with Amaretto, Rum and Pineapple Juice. Your very own Roxie & Foxie,i.e. Jan Kolbe & Kathy Kinnard
“The French Room” –Hosts: Joyce & Shawn. Come experience a taste of the French culture which influenced the Cajun culture in New Orleans. We will be serving French 75s which is a cocktail made from gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. The drink was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris---later Harry's New York Bar---by barman Harry MacElhone. The combination was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful French 75mm field gun, also called a "75 Cocktail", or "Soixante Quinze" in French. The French 75 was popularized in America at the Stork Club in New York. Test your art history knowledge of the French masters and possibly win a prize. Experience the light and sounds of Paris at night by joining us in the French theme room!
“Dirty Hoe Room” Hosts: Robin & Teena. Where you will find your favorite garden tools and questions that are on all dirty minds! Alabama Slammers being served! (Southern Comfort, Amerato, Orange Juice). Mardi Gras & Jazz Music will abound to round out the party! Laissez les bons temps rouler!!!
“The Hurricane Room” – Hosts: Corinna & Dianne. Our drink will be blue in collar to match the ocean blue water that follows the hurricane. Hurricane is a mixture of light rum, dark rum, grenadine, passion fruit and secret juices to create this beautiful blue drink. The hurricane is a sweet alcoholic drink made with rum and fruit juice, syrup or grenadine. It is one of many popular drinks served in New Orleans. The creation of this passion fruit-colored relative of a Daiquiri drink is credited to New Orleans tavern owner Pat O'Brien. In the 1940s, he needed to create a new drink to help him get rid of all of the less popular rum that local distributors forced him to buy before he could get a few cases of more popular liquors such as scotch and whiskey. He poured the concoction into hurricane-lamp-shaped glasses and gave it away to sailors. The drink caught on, and it has been a mainstay in the French Quarter ever since.
“The Hot! Hot! Hot! Room” Hosts: Peggy, Sue, and Maggie. Come and stop by our room to celebrate Mardi Gras Brazilian style! We are serving shots of the hottest drink we could find! Fireball whiskey, and also hosting a hot sauce contest to judge how hot you are! Let the good times roll!!!
“The Pirate Room” Hosts: Steve & James. "Arrrrrr... join us at the Pirate Room for a Mardi Gras good time! We'll be serving Bahama Mama's and toasting the Jolly Roger for some pirate luck. For the adventurous among you we'll have some great Pirate games, and you won't even have to walk the plank! The room will have some great decorations and even a Parrot or two.
