Mardi Gras Party 7

Tuesday, March 4


You may not be able to afford a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, but you could probably swing a scoot down to Hannah's for the annual Ta Ta Tuesday Mardi Gras party. This is, as they like to call it, an ABC bash: Anything But Clothes.

Break out the duct tape, glitter, garbage bags, playing cards and anything else you can think of, and get crafty--those who suit up in the best "not clothes" costumes are eligible for $200 cash prizes.

It wouldn't be a party at Hannah's without games, so join in the fun with contests like the Bobbing for Baubles Dive, in which you get the chance to dive into a pool on the dance floor to win sexy prizes from Tasteful Sinsations.

There will be a limited number of feather masks, crowns and hats, as well as beads aplenty, including blinking beads, collector beads and beads with a naughty twist. Of course, plan on all-night drink specials--$1 shots and $4.50 Hannahcanes--and free admission.

King cakes will be handed out every hour and everyone who finds the Christ Child in his or her cake will be crowned queen or king for the hour and receive a $25 bar tab.

The Red Light Variety Show will provide some entertainment in the form of aerial acrobatics high above Hannah's dance floor and the Rocci Johnson Band and VJ Jazzy Jim will provide the music and keep the party going until your bacchanalian behavior has you looking forward to Lent.
