Party like it’s 2001, or on second thought, don’t. But there are some Mardi Gras things going on today.

World Cafe Live is hosting a Mardi Gras Masquerade starting at 7:30 PM. There will be performances by Lady Alma, Fat Tuesday & The Crawdaddies (AKA Franz Shubert and the Bawdy Girl Bourbon Street Dancers) and the Anthony Lattanze Band. There will also be New Orleans cuisine from gumbo to Blackened Snapper. And to drink there will be hurricanes and Hurricanes and $3 Abita beers.

And all of the Copas are offering $6 Hurricanes and discounted beers.
