The good times are rollin’ again at Kingfisher during their classic New Orleans-style feast from 5 p.m. – midnight on Tuesday, March 5.

The evening signals the end of Mardi Gras — which is the biggest day of celebrations —with its classic New Orleans fare, great drinks, and live music.

Kingfisher owners, Jeff Azersky and Jim Murphy, love bringing that perfect amount of New Orleans style to Tucson in their feast. This year’s menu has a few a la carte offerings to choose from, like the classic Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, and Jambalaya.

There are going to be traditional drinks, too, such as Hurricanes, Sazeracs, and a selection of Louisiana brews like the Abita Turbodog.

Reservations are strongly suggested (who enjoys waiting to be seated, right?), and can be made by calling (520) 323-7739.
