Black Jack and Tilt are excited to celebrate the third annual Mardi Gras with a four day festival featuring food and drink specials, live music, all-you- can-eat brunch, guest bartender cocktail competition and more.
Throughout the weekend guests can enjoy $3.50 Abita beers, $8 Hurricanes and Irish coffee slushies, $10 Mardi Gras cocktails and $15 yard drinks.
The party kicks off Saturday, February 10th, 2018 at 3:00pm with the reveal of a Mardi Gras menu featuring classic New Orleans dishes, like Cajun shrimp and crawfish fritters, and cocktails.
Arriving guests will be given beads and masks on the red carpet. The step and repeat, snapchat geo-filters, and portable photo booth (complements of PixelStrut) provide more than enough opportunities for memorable photos with friends.
Sunday begins with an All-You-Can-Eat Mardi Gras Brunch from noon to 4:00pm. Tickets are $65 and include an oyster and raw bar station as well as large pot jambalaya, ponchartrain eggs, muffuletta sliders, king cake donuts and more.
Happy hour begins again at 4:00pm with drink specials until close.
The Double Dare Cocktail Competition, inspired by nostalgia for the 90’s game show, begins Monday at 7:00pm with teams of local guest bartenders competing in an array of challenges, both cocktail related and randomly unconventional.
Celebrations continue on Fat Tuesday, February 13th at 5:00pm, with DC band SWAGFUNK playing live music in Black Jack while happy hour specials continue.
Tilt bartenders will be mixing shareable punches, each of which serves three to four guests for $25, in addition to Mardi Gras Cocktails.
