It's time to get out that green, gold & purple attire, Fat Tuesday is right around the corner! The Essen Haus and Come Back In are teaming up to throw a Mardi Gras party fit for kings (and queens). Our German half calls it Fasching. A New Orleans-inspired Creole menu will be available, along with Bacardi Silver hurricanes, all night happy hour drink specials, beads, and free live music. The festivities begin at 3pm and will run long into the night.

WheelHouse will provide the entertainment at the Come Back In from 5-8pm, with some free Americana/bluegrass tunes. Meanwhile, Copper Box will headline the Essen Haus with more Americana and swamp pop songs from 6:30-10pm. Stay in one spot, or bounce around to maximize your Mardi Gras & Fasching fun.

Free admission and free parking. Visit to learn more.
