It’s time for Northside Mardi Gras! More than two dozen Northside businesses are celebrating this weekend with live music, food and drink specials, and more! Try everything from Dixieland to rock & roll, from gumbo to po’boys, from classic cocktails to regional beers. You can find the full schedule of events at Just click the Mardi Gras logo to find your favorite music, food and drink!

We’ll finish with a great Fat Tuesday Party at the Allegheny Elks Lodge #339 on Tuesday, February 9th from 7:00-11:00 pm. Dixie Doc and the Dixieland All Stars will be playing, Jack “Johnny Angel” Hunt will be singing with the band, and we’ll crown our 2016 Mardi Gras King, WQED’s Rick Sebak! The Elks will be cooking New Orleans style and the bar will have specials. $15 at the door. Get there early because we sold out last year!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
