New Orleans might be hundreds of miles away, but that won’t stop Cape Coral’s premiere waterfront dining spot from embracing the festive spirit of Mardi Gras. Gather is teaming up with four local restaurants to host Beads, Bites and Booze, a celebration that will bring the spirit of Bourbon Street to Southwest Florida.
Strings of multicolored beads will fly through the air as Cajun Gringos, Rollin’ Raw Bar, Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery, Marker 92 Waterfront Bar & Bistro and Gather dish up some of their best selections and stir up some of their best drinks, including Bourbon Street-style slushies, on Saturday, March 2 from 5-9 p.m. in the back alley of Gather on 5971 Silver King Blvd. There’s no cover charge, and all-you-can drink tickets are available for just $75 by calling 239-673-9939.
The sounds of Soapy Tuna and David Rojas from 5-9 p.m. will get everyone moving with their high-energy spin on music from the ‘70s, ‘90s and today.
Guests are encouraged to stay late and continue the festivities inside the restaurant for a Masquerade After Party from 9 p.m.-midnight with music by DJ German Garcia and Patrick Montanari. The late-night celebration costs $25. Call Gather at 239-673-9939 to purchase tickets.
