The good times are ready to roll at Kingfisher during their classic New Orleans-style feast from 5 p.m. – midnight on Tuesday, February 13.
Also known as Fat Tuesday, the evening is meant to celebrate the culmination of Mardi Gras, and the beginning of the austere season of Lent.
The menu features an a la carte menu, including classic gumbo and jambalaya, along with traditional libations like Hurricanes, Sazeracs, and the Louisiana brew Abita Turbodog.
In the spirit of the holiday, everyone will be offered Mardi Gras beads and a chance to win a Kingfisher t-shirt if you “find the baby” in their King Cake dessert.
In addition to the Fat Tuesday menu, the regular Kingfisher dinner menu will also be offered as well.
