Though you might not remember the whole trip, you’re probably still having Mardi Gras withdrawals after your epic spring break in NOLA last March. While we can’t bring you Pat O’s or Bourbon Street, here are some of the snazziest, jazziest ways to ring in Fat Tuesday tonight right here in Philly. The following are all BYOB (bring your own beads).
City Tap House: A Mardi menu – including gumbo, etouffee, po boys and bread pudding – is made complete with Abita Draughts and live music by the Black Bird Society Orchestra. Quizzo is still on, too.
Blockley Pourhouse: Brass Heaven, Swift Technique, Hamburger Hunt and The 9′s will be playing at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door, and there will be a $10 open bar between 8 and 10 p.m.
World Cafe Live: Wild Bohemians are back for their 28th annual Mardi Gras performance. Their repertoire ranges from genres that include “Cajun, Zydeco, Dixieland and the Swamp Stomp” play at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.
