The good-time lads at ~TOWN HALL~ certainly know how to mix up a killer cocktail and stuff you silly on delish dishes (you’ve had Faith’s cheese toast, right?). So you can only imagine what a Mardi Gras party is going to be like in their capable hands before sending you off into Lent, when some folks do strange things like give up booze for 40 days. On Fat Tuesday (February 28) from 5pm on, pay up $65 and enjoy a roving feast, roaming about the restaurant and sampling traditional New Orleans’-style foods prepared by Executive Chef/Owners Mitchell and Steven Rosenthal. We’re talking a raw bar, a shellfish boil over newspaper-covered tables (it’s okay to lick your fingers), gumbo and jambalaya stations, fried chicken, beer and wine, and a Hurricane station, the official Mardi Gras cocktail. (Shame about the name, however.) There will be live music (the New Orleans funk band the d'amphibians) and guests are encouraged to don masquerade masks for the party. Make sure it doesn’t obstruct your gaping maw, however.
