Editorial Review

Mardi Gras Madness is one of the area's longest-running Fat Tuesday parties, even though the New Orleans flavor comes more from wearing masks and tossing beads -- yes, it's that kind of event -- than a traditional Louisiana vibe. '80s hard rock cover band Herr Metal, '90s cover band White Ford Bronco and all-around cover band Down Wilson entertain the largely 20-something audience. The cover charge includes free beads and masks, with special feathered masks for the first 200 through the door.
