Calendar Pick: Historic Athens Mardi Gras Masquerade

Historic Athens Mardi Gras

Historic Athens continues its tradition of high quality events with the fifth annual Mardi Gras Masquerade, a night of food, drink, dance and revelry. Partygoers can enjoy mingling with other revelers, experience a New Orleans cocktail menu curated and prepared by Jerry and Krista Slater of The Expat and Slater’s Steakhouse, and enjoy tastings of traditional Mardi Gras dishes such as étouffée, jambalaya, po boys and king cake. Cafe Racer will also be there with its food truck for dinner service. Georgia band Blair Crimmins and The Hookers will light up the night with its music, described as “supercharged hot ragtime jazz with a touch of rock and roll.” The night will conclude with a best-dressed competition, where partygoers go head to head in hopes of winning a Terrapin prize pack.
