Mardi Gras & Lundi Gras at Maxie’s, Feb. 12 & 13, 2018
Join us here at Maxie’s for Milwaukee’s best Mardi Gras party on Feb. 12 and Feb. 13. This is our 11th year, and we’re again sporting a “culinary costume” of New Orleans-inspired creations. For these two days, we’ll skip our Low Country and BBQ dishes, and double down on pure New Orleans realness. Expect our unique Strawberry Beignets, Crispy Boudin Balls, and, of course, Muffuletta. (And save room for a slice of King Cake at the end of the night on Mardi Gras!)
Drink specials for both nights include $4 Abita beers and $5 real passion fruit Hurricanes.
Lundi Gras, Monday, Feb. 12, 4 p.m.
Lundi Gras is an excellent opportunity to dine on classic New Orleans dishes and Maxie’s original creations before the party rages. Maxie’s opens at 4 p.m. on Lundi Gras. Members of the Extra Crispy Brass Band (ECBB) will perform roving throughout the restaurant from 6 to 9 p.m.
