Mardi Gras at The Moon

Beer Week continues today with The Crescent Moon’s 16th annual Mardi Gras party. You can expect all of your Fat Tuesday favorites, including thousands of beads thrown from the ubiquitous balcony, tshirts, prizes, cajun cuisine, and of course the beer will be flowing. The party starts at 4 and a $5 cover to enter the Mardi Party goes into effect at 5.
