Last night’s Mardi Gras celebration definitely surpassed my expectations. So much so that I am literally working from my bed today 😉 I had committed to leading a meeting in the evening for all of the higher education master’s students on attending professional conferences and networking so I was eager to get out and check-out the Fat Tuesday festivities. The meeting didn’t end until 8pm so I was starving and ready for some hurricanes. I met some friends at Beer Run, which is a cross between a restaurant, bar, and beer store. It really is a cool place because if you’re standing at the bar the coolers for the beer are right behind you.
They were having a Mardi Gras themed party, complete with a “Get Fat Tuesday” menu for dinner and drinks specials. I had to have a hurricane right off the bat and they were huge! For dinner I had a ham and swiss po’ boy with a side of maque choux. I’ve never had maque choux before–it’s like a spicy corn and tomato salad. I just like the way the name sounds, MAAACH CHHHHOIIIIIII, and I kept saying all night long 😉
After our filling meal we met up with a few more people on the Corner for some more drinks. I got to meet up with my friend Sarah, who I never see because she works nights
You know how you have those nights that are completely unplanned yet turn out so well? Yep, last night was one of those nights 🙂 I had really just planned to get dinner and one or two drinks and call it a night. I ended up staying at the bar until 2am!
Hope you had a fun Mardi Gras!!!
