The Quarter Bar invites patrons to join them on Tuesday, February 21, 3 PM to close, for a Fat Tuesday celebration.

Starting at 9 PM a DJ will be on hand to spin the crowd into a full state of Mardi Gras madness.
Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” and is the celebratory carnival that leads up to the beginning of Lent, the season of fasting and penitence. It gets its name from the practice of consuming foods that would be forbidden during Lent leading up to the beginning of the fast on Ash Wednesday. Join the Quarter Bar to laissez les bons temps rouler.

On Tuesday, Feb. 13, the three-story, European-style food hall, brewery and live music and entertainment venue will be hosting a Fat Tuesday party that’ll make you glad you didn’t make the trip to New Orleans this year.
In celebration of the holiday, special NOLA-inspired items will be offered at the food hall from open to close, including king cake donuts by Glazed Donut Works and beignets by Haute Sweets Patisserie. Of course, it’s not a Fat Tuesday party without Mardi Gras-themed drinks and Legacy Hall’s drinks specials will give you the best excuse to drink on a weekday. $6 Hall Grenades and Hurricane specials will be available on all three levels, including the pop-up bar on the third floor.

Has vodka finally jumped the shark? Maybe not if you are a fan of the Mardi Gras dessert, the King Cake. You remember the garishly bright cake with its neon striations and a tiny plastic baby tucked away for good measure. Now Pinnacle Vodka is offering a seasonal flavor, the King Cake Vodka.
The special sweet hooch is only available in three states, Louisiana, Texas and Missouri. The special holiday blend from Pinnacle has hints of cinnamon cake, creamy vanilla frosting, and sugar flavors. Sounds terrific, right?
