Mardi Gras Party


Mardi Gras Party

Bringing the French Quarter to Kenmore Square’s Door Step this Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, Carnival; different ways to describe the same worldwide party of hedonism and excess before the long (and dry) days of Lent.This March, Kenmore Square craft cocktail hub The Hawthorne is doing just that by bringing true New Orleans flavor to the neighborhood with a properly gluttonous and spirited Mardi Gras feast.

Time-honored, N’awlins-born cocktails like the Sazerac, Vieux Carre and Ramos Gin Fizz will be flowing Bacchus-style throughout the evening. And for noshing, live crawfish flown in straight from The Big Easy, The Hawthorne’s own oversized muffuletta and freshly fried oyster Po’ Boys lay a stick-to-your ribs foundation for a little light debauchery – horns and beads included. Rounding out the festivities is live New Orleans jazz from Mickey Bones and the Hot Tamale Brass Band, letting guests get down to the beats of Bourbon Street. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training as they prepare to run the Boston Marathon.

Event Price : Tickets are $75/person, includes New Orleans-approved snacks and two cocktails; other cocktails and bites available for purchase.
