    Craftsman: Mardi Gras Takeover

    The lively East Austin drinkery unveils an amazing Mardi Gras pop-up experience featuring a delicious array of their favorite New Orleans-inspired cocktails and food, with the whole joint decorated to make guests feel like they've been transported to the middle of the French Quarter.

    Note: A recent preview reveals that, instead of just throwing some basic N'awlins-sparked flair at the bar, the Craftsman crew has researched that storied city's mixological history from 1800 onward … and used their intel to conjure freshly brilliant examples of vintage cocktails. We'll go out on a bead-draped limb here and suggest that you might never find a better Sazerac for years, for instance. But we'll also insist that we'd rather spend all night tossing back sugar-rimed coupes of that 1850-specific Brandy Crusta. Between bites of the special menu's succulent shrimp po'boy, to be sure. We mean: Laissez les bons temps rouler, baby!

    Lavaca Street Bar: Fat Tuesday

    Pair your Hurricanes (on tap!) or the night's Abita specials with some great grub that just about whispers happy mardi gras as you eat: seafood gumbo, blackened redfish paired with dirty rice and salad, and (of course) crawfish étouffée with red beans and rice.
