Mardi Gras Celebration at Wine Country Inn This Weekend

"Laissez les bon temps roulez!” (Let the good times roll!) is the theme of Mardi Gras night at the Wine Country Inn this Saturday, Feb. 21.

The evening will include Bourbon Street’s famous Hurricane cocktails, hot food and hotter jazz from 8 to 11 p.m. in the hotel’s Vineyard Room. Live music will be playing, too courtesy of the InFlux Jazz Quartet.

Mardi Gras 777 will offer a cash bar, bar menu, and those famous Hurricanes, which are amazing concoctions of lime juice, passion fruit syrup and rum. There is a $5 cover charge. Everyone 21 and over is welcome.

To encourage responsible drinking and safety, the hotel is offering an optional special room rate of $77.70 for a standard room for two, including a complimentary pass to Mardi Gras 777 for those who prefer to stay over instead of driving home. The room night is not required for enjoying Mardi Gras 777.

“We had such a good turnout for our first Jazz 777 night, we realized that there is a real need for a music venue that’s fun and affordable,” explains Anne Tally, co-owner. “My Mom is a native of Louisiana, I attended college in New Orleans, and our GM logged some years in the hotel business in the state, so we have some knowledge of Mardi Gras!”

No reservations are required to attend Mardi Gras777, but guests who prefer to stay over should give the hotel a call to book accommodations at the special rate.

The Inn is located at 777 Grande River Dr. Palisade (Exit 42 Off I-70). Call 970-464-577 or 888-850-8330 for more info or visit the Wine Country Inn’s website by clicking the link below this story.
