At 7pm Fascinatin Rhythm Band takes the stage with live music and swing dancing. (More about Dogwood Tavern)

Dogwood was also all set to have the Abita Mardi Gras Bock drafts for $3 (from 3pm-7pm) but a keg mix up may force that beer to be the Abita Spring IPA.

Chasin' Tails is having some good New Orleans style specials with 

  • $5 specialty cocktails (hurricanes, fishbowls, bayou blasts) - These drinks are typically around $10 bucks, so a pretty good deal and very Mardi Gras.
