A reader writes asking for fun suggestions for her 24 year old niece and friends, specifically, “suggestions for Mardi Gras fun just a few steps up from the body-shots, pukey, sticky-floor yob crowd.” Hahaha, I’m curious to hear your suggestions as well!

I’ll share a few suggestions emailed my way. Well first off, I’m sure New Orleans themed, Little Miss Whiskey’s will be pretty spectacular located at 1104 H Street NE. Also on H St, NE The Pug is celebrating Mardi Gras at 1234 H St, NE:

And in NW The Heights will be celebrating at 3115 14th Street NW:

Also in NW, and one of my personal favorites, the Red Derby located at 3718 14th St. NW will be celebrating their 3rd annual Mardi Gras:

“We’re gonna have 3$ Hurricanes and $5 Shrimp Po’ Boys. AND the DECK is OPEN!! WHoooo”
