Save the Date: Phoenix Club Mardi Gras Party is Saturday
This Saturday is the 17th annual Phoenix Club Mardi Gras Party and Casino Night. It's a yearly tradition involving about a thousand Memphians decked out in their cocktail fanciest and ready to party, gamble, and give back.
Tickets to the party are $40 ($50 day of) for regular admission that includes specialty drinks and beer, or you can spring for VIP tickets for $75 and enjoy a full bar, Central BBQ, and private gambling table. Proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis. Here's the Facebook event page.
This year, you'll be able to enjoy the music of Mansions on the Moon, gambling tables with pro dealers, a free photo booth, and a Fireball shot bar, and lots of prizes. Al Kapone is slated to make a guest appearance, and I have a sneaky feeling he's going to perform Memphis' favorite unofficial anthem, "Whoop That Trick". Note: it's not neceessary for you to know a Phoenix Club member to attend.
