Mardi Gras Events This Weekend

Busy weekend of Mardi Gras events this weekend on the Island.  Descriptions are on the website so, I won't rehash everything:

Monster House Party Deadline: Friday is the deadline for this contest.  Are you having a party on Grand Parade Day? You need to enter this. Just for being one of the first 100 to enter, you get a party pack with 3 cases of Monster beverages and a ton of cups.

Taste of Soulard: This event, on Saturday and Sunday, is one of the coolest events of Mardi Gras season.  Buy a booklet and walk around the neighborhood sampling food and drink.  Don't want to walk?  Free shuttles make is easy to get from Social House to Cat's Meow or anywhere else.  Here are some highlights I see on the menu:
  • Bogart's- St. Louis Style Ribs
  • DB's- Old Man Sandwich (seriously, check the website)
  • Market Grill- Boudine Sausage Balls
  • Coffee Garden- Peach cheesecake
Run For The Beads: A 5k through Soulard on Saturday. Register for the race and get a discounted Taste ticket too

Pet Parade & Weiner Dog Derby: Sunday starting at 1pm. Here's what I can say about it:

See you around the Island this weekend. Remember to use the hashtag #stlmg if you are tweeting about the events
