    Do you have any more information on this event tonight? What the drink specials are? Thanks!

  2. Johnna Knows Good Food: Yum Yum, Gimme Some! says:

    Gathered up some further details: The event will have beads, masks and Hurricane drinks tonight (*The Hurricane’s will probably be on special because they don’t usually serve these per our convo with the staff at The Red Derby)…and desserts such as king cake will be served. *The staff seemed unsure about the pricing of things when we spoke with them.
    Hope this helps! Happy Mardi Gras;-)
