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. You never know what those parrots might say, so be on your best behavior. We may even sing some Pirate songs! So bring your best eye patches, hook hands, and peg legs to the Pirate Room! You'll have a great time!!!

“The Crazy Cajun Restaurant Room” Hosts: Tim & Dave. The food being served is a shrimp & chicken Etousfee over rice with chocolate bread pudding and Mardi Gras King Cake. This is an original New Orleans recipe from Chief Emeril Lagase.

    We are past the original deadline for the $69 (Plus tax) discounted room rate for staying the night at the hotel but I talked to the Sales Manager today and we have an additional 10 rooms that can be booked at the discounted price. If you would like to book a room and spend the night please call the hotel at[masked] and ask for reservations. The next 10 people who call and book a room get the discounted price; you can call as late as 10 pm on Friday Feb 8th. Right now we have about 35 rooms booked for Saturday night. Remember Club members get to attend all the parties Saturday night for free if you book a room. (Non-members & meetup friends pay $10 extra)

    Bring on the beads !

  • Curtis C.

    From Roger Meeks: If you are shopping for mardi gras stuff, costumes, etc, I found the Reinke Bros store in old Littleton, near Main St.
    and Prince St., to be a good source. I liked their selection.

    February 7, 2013

  • Curtis C.

    On the issue of costumes, don't let a lack of costume prevent you from attending. It' looking like about 1/2 of everyone attending will be in costume, the other 1/2 are just going to be sporting beads and Mardi-Gras Masks.

    We are still looking for a couple more people to host party rooms on the 2nd floor of the hotel (Bourbon Street). You can go with a “Pirate Room” or a “King & Queen” theme or a “Jester room” or a “Haitian Skeleton Room”. There are many different themes and costumes associated with Mardi Gras. Please let me know if you would like to host a room and I’ll go over the details with you. We are going to have a cash prize for the best Bourbon Street room! Call Curtis at[masked]
