An Extravaganza

Mardi Gras Extravaganza (MGE) is all about creating an authentic evening that honors the cuisine, cocktails, and musical culture of New Orleans. 

 

The 2019 MGE will be held on Tuesday March 5, 2019-officially Fat Tuesday-at The Showroom, located in Washington, DC in the heart of the popular 14th Street corridor. 

 

Proceeds from this event benefit DC Central Kitchen (DCCK), whose mission is to fight hunger differently. The hosts of this extravaganza have volunteered countless hours to DCCK, especially with their program that educates the homeless through the culinary arts so they can gain employment, feel empowered with skills and change the cycle of poverty. 

 

Under the helm of famed mixologist Gina Cherservani, over 12 mixologists serve the best of New Orleans classics, in a competition to win title of Best Hurricane Cocktail. 

 

A state of the art stage will feature a live broadcast of Bourbon Street and the famous diamond 20 screen backdrop, by Pike Productions,  showcases the amazing sounds of Louisiana bands jamming throughout the night.

 

Chefs David Guas and Spike Mendelsohn curate 25 chefs from around the region to highlight a NOLA inspired dish focused on deliciousness and sustainability and battling for the title of Best Chef Bite. Save some room for the original tri-colored King Cake stuffed with cream cheese by Chef David Guas, or explore something new - King Cake Doughnuts and Milkshakes! 

 

Tables of complimentary masks and beads add to the spirit of this exciting evening. The rattling of the bartender’s shakers and the smell of shrimp po’boys, red beans and rice, and jambalaya with potent andouille sausage fill the air. It’s clear that an authentic celebration is taking place and it’s unlike any other event in DC.  

 

This event is not to be missed. Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!
