The celebration begins at 11 AM and will continue late into the night. Chef Rusty Holman and team are looking forward to offering guests an authentic taste of New Orleans’ Mardi Gras in the heart of Washington, DC.

Festivities begin at 11 AM on Fat Tuesday, featuring food and drink specials of New Orleans favorites such as jambalaya, assorted po' boys, hurricanes, and much more. Live music kicks off on the restaurant’s enclosed and heated front patio with the Capitol Hillbillies, performing from 11 AM to 3 PM. From 5 PM to 9 PM, Bayou will offer an all-you-can-eat buffet for $30 per person, featuring a wide assortment of Chef Rusty’s famed Cajun cuisine. Drink specials include $6 Hurricanes, $6 Grenades, and Abita’s Mardi Gras Bock and Purple Haze brews on tap for $5.

Masks, beads, doubloons, and other “lagniappe” will fly through the air as the New Orleans-style live music continues late into the evening. Bands include Zach Smith & The Dixie Power Trio, as well as The Fritz. Door prizes and giveaways will also be offered, courtesy of Abita.
