5. Mardi Gras Party: Gigi's Music Café Grand Reopening
Noon, Saturday, February 7, at Gigi's Music Café, Sunrise Cinema Strip Mall, 4385 NW 88 Ave., Sunrise. No cover. Visit http://www.gigismusiccafe.com/.
You don't need to travel to New Orleans for a taste of Mardi Gras. Instead, get your Big Easy on at the reopening of Gigi's Music Café in Sunrise. The 12-hour Creole celebration will include live music, karaoke, food samples, and cheap drinks for the price of nada dollars.
The jams will be provided by Mandy Moon, George the Jazz Man, Paul Wilson and Friends, and others. The musical coffee spot has more than just new good looks to offer, too. There's an updated menu with novel items such as Mrs. P's chicken balls, fried chicken livers, and Creole deviled eggs. Just remember to keep your shirt on: It's not that kind of Mardi Gras party, ok?
