Get your beads ready and take out your wackiest purple, green and gold costumes for a Fat Tuesday celebration at Southern Rail, 300 W. Camelback Road, inside The Newton. The food and drink deals on the Mardi Gras Social Hour menu will be available from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Feb. 28.

Among the specials are festive slices of King Cake, a staple of Mardi Gras celebrations made of a cinnamon brioche dough shaped into a hollow circle and glazed with icing and Mardis Gras-colored sugar sprinkles.

During the festivities, Southern Rail will be awarding prizes for the most outrageous and creative costumes. New Orleans signature whiskey cocktails, Monsoons and Sazeracs, will also be joining the party, and guests opting for the full New Orleans experience are invited to stay for dinner and enjoy Chef Justin Beckett’s famous Jambalaya.
