El Mardi Gras

San Antonio is as obsessed with Nawlins culture as ever and we can celebrate Mardi Gras with native New Orleans once more with the second El Mardi Gras block party on February 11 from 1-7 p.m. Held last February in advance of Mardi Gras 2017, El Mardi Gras is put on by Susan and Pieter Sypesteyn of NOLA Brunch & Beignets, The Cookhouse and their nonprofit Third Coast Charities. Like last year, the event will bring together area chefs in celebrating the cuisine of the bayou with Sypesteyn repping Cookhouse, Jeff Balfour of Southerleigh, and Chris Cullum of Attagirl among some of the chefs slated to return. The festival will include food vendors, art vendors, beer and daiquiris and Zydeco music (obviously). Though the event is free to attend, VIP tickets area available for $75 with “exclusive food and beverages in the VIP area along with comfortable seating and indoor restrooms” per the event’s website.

Dad's Karaoke
2615 Mossrock Dr., (210) 267-5703, facebook.com/dadskaraoke
When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together. This spot is perfect for times you just wanna get drunk and scream into a microphone. Slightly sleazy, the bar is a solid option for hours of uninhibited fun for just about anyone, especially first-timers trying to get their feet wet in the art of karaoke. Expect a crowd — or shall we say audience?

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.
