Fat Tuesday = Sick Day Wednesday

Mardi Gras celebrations tend to involve some of our favorite things – drinks, food, and live music (… and boobs and beads but those fall a little lower on the ‘favorites’ list.)

We’re not sure which festive events we will be attending – but there are a few good options across the city:

Liquid Kitty, WestLA (5pm – 2am)
·      No Cover,
·      Live Cajun/Zydeco band (“The Damn Well Please Organ Trio”)
·      Grilled Cheese truck out front at 10:30pm
·      Drink Specials: $3 Abita Beer, $6 Hurricanes, $6 Sazerac Martinis, $2 PBR, $3 Low Lifes (Pabst & a Shot)

Rush Street, Culver City (7pm – Close)
·      Specialty Drinks: Mint Juleps, Hurricanes, Alabama Slammers
·      Free Party Favors
·      Masked Bead Girls

Westwood Brewing Co, Westwood (Beginning @ 6pm)
·      Free Beads
·      Gumbo Special: $7/bowl
·      Zydeco Music, 6pm – 8pm
·      8pm: New Orleans Themed Trivia Night!

South, Santa Monica (4pm – Close)
·      $4 Beer Specials
·      Beads, Masks

J Lounge, Downtown (5pm – 8pm)
·      “Fat Happy Hour” Drink Specials
·      Creole Menu Items by Chef Oz
·      Live Entertainment

For those just looking for a good Cajun meal: 

Dominick's, West Hollywood
Mardi Gras Themed Menu included $5 Gumbo, $6 Jambalaya, $8 Eggplant pirogues with shrimp sauce

The Gumbo Pot, Mid City
This spot serves their delicious Cajun food year-round at the Grove Farmer's market. However, for Mardi Gras the Farmer's Market transforms into a Mardi-Gras party with live music and Gumbo Pot has King Cakes available for purchase for the holiday.

Maybe plan to call in for a ‘personal day’ at work on Wednesday? You’ll need it after you take down all those southern-style drinks!
