Blue Dome Mardi Gras Parade

Mardi Gras – did you know that’s French for Fat Tuesday? – is here, Tulsa. Here’s where to party (and collect copious amounts of beads, of course).

Mardi Gras at Chicory & Chives
When: Tuesday, March 8th, all day
Where: Chicory & Chives, 5800 S. Lewis Ave., Suite 129
Mardi Gras starts bright and early at Chicory & Chives, an authentic Cajun restaurant here in Tulsa. A band will strike up at 10:30 in the morning and play through lunch, then return at about 5pm and play the night away. Look for beer and drink specials on everything from Hurricanes to VooDoo-tinis and specials on food like Po’ Boys, étouffée, andouille sausage corndogs and shrimp and grits – plenty on which to eat yourself silly. Beads, masks and giveaways will also be in plentiful supply, and the customer with the best costume tomorrow evening gets a $50 gift certificate good at the restaurant. Yum!

Mardi Gras Madness
When: 4 p.m.
Where: Hardesty Regional Library, 8316 E. 93rd St.
Looking for something for the kids to do this Mardi Gras? Let them celebrate Fat Tuesday at the library with New Orleans style decorations, music and treats. Decorate a mask or make some Mardi Gras beads. This event is for ages 7-11.

Mardi Gras Fun Run & Walk
