Mardi Gras Carnivale

Please note: This event has already occurred.
No need to hit the Bourbon Street debauchery when we have our own entertainment right here. Music, burlesque, sideshows and -- as the Black Cat says -- "general mayhem." As for the music, Johnny Grave & the Tombstones, Black Masala, and Norman Rockwell all perform. Glam Gamz and Cherie Sweetbottom do their burlesque act. And Moloch's Midway and Cabinet of Infernal Mysteries have feats to shock everyone. Bring it. Doors open at 9 p.m.
