Yes, most of the good Mardi Gras action is down in NOLA. But we have enough booze and parties to celebrate properly here in Boston. Here are our recommendations:
• Eat at Buttermilk & Bourbon – This NOLA-inspired restaurant is complete with oyster bar, hurricanes on tap and elaborate murals on the walls.
• Revolutionary Snake Ensemble Mardi Gras Party – Groove to the tunes of a band inspired by the second line brass bands of NOLA on March 5 (the night of Mardi Gras).
• Mass Ave Mardi Gras – This party (free entrance) on March 2 features classic food, music and a costume contest.
