Tuesday, March 8:
Papa Mojo’s Roadhouse is throwing a huge party for Mardi Gras. There will be two party rooms, four bands, a mask contest, face painting, caricatures and an art gallery. Food will be served in the restaurant only, and all the big festivities in the adjacent ballroom. Guests are encouraged wear masks and Papa Mojo’s will provide the beads. For ticket information and for a performance schedule, visit their website.
Blu Seafood is also offering Creole and Cajun classics on their Mardi Gras themed menu served from 5:00-10:00. Menu items will include shellfish gumbo, jambalaya, and New Orleans inspired cocktails.
Bandido’s decided not to pass up the occasion for celebration either and is featuring shrimp and crayfish enchiladas with chipotle cream sauce as a lunch and dinner special. They will also have drinks specials and offer customers beards. Check out there offer on http://www.durhamncdeals.com/.
The Pinhook is offering Cajun dance lessons taught by Jack and Sandra Wolf at 8:00 (perhaps a good way to exercise off some of the dinner special calories) and at 9:00 the Shamu Garcon band will take the stage to play high octane Cajun dance music.
