Hello lovelies,

One more day till we time-travel to turn-of-century Paris and blow it out with our anachronistic Valentine's cabaret! It will be a full house, but some tickets remain, miraculously including a *single table of four seats* of the two we added last week after selling out all others. Someone grab that quick :P

We're also delighted to announce the return of our annual Brooklyn Mardi Gras, with the usual excess of brass bands and King cake. Still working on gumbo for this year, as our usual go-to, Gumbo Bros is no longer around (RIP). If anyone has tasty gumbo recos for the party, whether caterer or restaurant, reach out! Meanwhile, tickets *just* went on sale, so you can snag yours early enough to get a slice of King cake included.
