Mardi Gras in SOMA 2020
You’re Invited: 2nd Annual “Mardi Gras in SOMA 2020” Kickoff Party
The Achieve Foundation is kicking off its “Nights of 100 Dinners” fundraiser with a community-wide celebration, “Mardi Gras in SOMA 2020,” on February 28. The Woodland in Maplewood will once again transform into the French Quarter with New Orleans-style food, drinks, music and dancing, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Edrington. Ruthie’s Bar-B-Q will be serving up a Mardi Gras-inspired feast, and party-goers can sit back and chill, or dance to the Cajun-country sounds of Big Mamou. The festivities will take place from 7:00 to 11:00 PM. Admission (adults only, please) is $25 per person and includes dinner plus one drink ticket. This event is expected to sell out, so get your tickets today.
