Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras (whichever you prefer) conjures up images of fun, feathery, festive parades, purple & green cakes with little babies tucked inside, elegant masked balls, delectable goodies to eat, and lots and lots of adult beverages. This is the time to eat all the rich, decadent, delicious foods you can before fasting for Lent. It’s a time to party! And in Gulf Shores, the place to be for Mardi Gras in Alabama is LuLu’s.
Lulu’s Mardi Gras Anniversary Celebration is not only a fun-filled Mardi Gras celebration, it’s also LuLu’s anniversary – so there are double the festivities! And there is always complimentary cake to celebrate another LuLu’s anniversary. Be sure to schedule time to attend both the LuLu’s Mardi Gras Anniversary Celebration and the LuLu’s Birds Of Paradise Annual Mardi Gras Ball.
Mardi Gras Alabama Celebration in Gulf Shores
Grab all the beads you have, get into your costume (or just put on all the purple, green and gold you have), grab your feathered mask and boa, and run down to LuLu’s. Enjoy the Lulu’s Mardi Gras Boat Parade – it starts at 3pm and floats right by LuLu’s – while imbibing in a few signature cocktails. Come early and get a prime seat on the deck. The fun at LuLu’s lasts all day, starting at 11am and ending around 11pm.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the live music, while feasting on LuLu’s great food. The menu is full of fresh seafood and shellfish options, as well as salads, sandwiches and burgers. Start things out with a true Southern original – fried green tomatoes. And, be sure to order the gumbo before it runs out!
The LuLu’s Birds Of Paradise Annual Mardi Gras ALabama Ball features a New Orleans inspired buffet with an open bar and live music all night long. The dress code is “Island Elegance” – which is pretty much whatever you want to wear! Order your tickets ($75/person – all inclusive) on the LuLu’s website or give them a call at 251-967-5858. There’s no better way to celebrate Mardi Gras!
Check the LuLu’s website for this year’s dates. And check LuLu’s Facebook page for current, upcoming events as well as photos of past celebrations. Oh – and LuLu is Lucy Buffet’s nickname and she just happens to be Jimmy Buffet’s sister. Having fun runs in the family! Lucy Buffet’s LuLu’s is right on the beach, at 200 E. 25th Avenue in Gulf Shores.
