Aw shiit! Mardi Gras weekend has descended upon us like a horde of locusts out of a fire and brimstone religio/politico Cruz speech! Louisiana brewery Abita is taking over our taps – five Abita beers on draft, all of them $3 (wot?!) Tonite through Fat Tuesday… -Turbodog (dark brown ale) -Mardi Gras Bock (Bock, obvs, maltier flavor than most of our other beers) -Purple Haze (lager brewed with real raspberries and wheat malt- basically a raspberry wheat beer) -Grapefruit IPA (self explanatory, also the last year they will be making this beer) -Abita Amber keeps on truckin as its fine ass self All of these also pour to the back bar where we will project an up to the minute live feed of the hedonism going down on Bourbon Street. Also, are you sitting down? Are your socks off? take them off or I’ll knock them off! there are $8 Hurricanes in lg plastic cups garnished with kitschy mardi gras shit to be had! Ho Haay DJ! – New Orleans native Steve Myers (of Mighty Fine, and formerly the Afghan Whigs) will spin tunes from 9PM-1AM on Tuesday in the back room. Super Bowl and Mardi Gras cum together this weekend and it’s bastard love child looks like Heavy Woods!
