Mardi Gras Masquerade Party

  • Mar 1, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

      You are invited to OHH's Masked Mardi Gras Party!

The weekend before Ash Wednesday is the time to dive deep into your favorite bad habits and indulge while you still can. This celebration of debauchery is called Carnival or Mardi Gras, and I love it despite not being catholic. 

This is a masquerade and/or costume party and their will be a prize for the best costume or mask. Feel free to go crazy or Rio skimpy or just put on a mask. If you do not own a Mardi Gras mask, it might be time to invest or you can come early and have your face painted by the professional face painter for a small fee.

Hopefully, your pleasures like mine include drinking, eating and dancing because that is exactly what we have planned: No host, Happy Hour and free finger foods will be from 8 to 9. At 9 the DJ comes on and we will dance until at least midnight while we continue to drink Go-go New Orleans punch.  

$12.00 Payments must be received via PayPal prior to event. Just click the pay link above. No money will be taken at the door. This event has been offered to other meet-ups and will sell out before Saturday.

The party is located conveniently one block off Broadway bus lines including the FreeBee and a few blocks from 12th street BART. In addition their are several reasonable hotels located near by. Please try not to Mardi Gras and drive.

    I love how all the guys wait until the last week to buy there tickets, just in case something else comes up....I'm starting to think that I might have to recruit other men from outside of the group for this thing. Ladies maybe you should invite some of your male friends to come with.

    • Adalberto

      Am coming Rick, we need more women than mans....don't you think so,,!???

    Please make your payments via PayPal by 5PM today. We cannot accept money at the door. Thanks!

    Have Fun with the Gumbo! I might not make it back to the bay area in time for the party.. Cheers!

    • Rick

      What Gumbo? I want some gumbo?

      1 · February 26, 2014

  • Brigetta

    Ok, dumb question. If I paid online, do I actually need to produce a ticket? I know, I said it was a dumb question (but I asked it none the less).

    1 · February 25, 2014

    • Rick

      I'm glad you asked too. We will have a list of everyone who has paid at the door, and a door man checking said list. Just bring your name and you will be fine. The only exception would be people who used their private business email address (there is only one person so far) and they can just use that as their name. This method seemed to work just fine for the Halloween party. If you would like to print a paypal receipt (optional) please feel free to do so. It might get you in quicker.

    • Tanya

      We can show proof on our phones....through email or paypal

      February 25, 2014

  • Paula

    Hey Rick I need two more tickets so how do I go back in and purchase without requesting a refund? I paid so it won't let me go back in?? Thanks.

    February 25, 2014

    • Rick

      I'm coming from Fairfield

      2 · February 24, 2014

    • Nico

      I'm wondering if you'd consider giving me a ride home if you're staying past midnight. BART stops running at midnight.

      February 24, 2014

  • Tanya

    Is anyone hopping on bart from the city

    February 24, 2014

  • Rick

    Alberto, To pay just hit the link next to the price and it will take you to paypal. Paypal can be hooked up to a credit card or your checking account.

    February 20, 2014

    • Rick

      Thanks Alberto I didn't know the app was different. When online it should be to the right of the price in the header of this page.

    Today I'm going tot he store to buy a new party mask. Have you got yours?

    February 17, 2014

    • Rick

      Thanks Paula. That's good news. I just got me a good one on Amazon for $12. They were also cheaper ones too.

      February 20, 2014

    • Nico

      I have a gorgeous mask I've had since '12. I got it for $15 at a theatrical supply shop. It's durable and sexy, very good quality. I've worn it a dozen times and it's held up wonderfully. For the Walnut Creekers, Encore on Ygnacio Valley Road is the place!
