Cinco de Mardi Gras!

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Join us for our 3rd Annual Brent House Underground, celebrating the music, food, and fun of Mardi Gras. (We know, we know: everyone else will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo, but Bishop Lee has declared May 5th, 2018 at 5540 S. Woodlawn Ave. to be 2nd Mardi Gras—only appropriate after this year’s 2nd Winter!) New Orleans jazz and zydeco music, creole/cajun food, a beer brewed especially for the occasion, and a silent auction. If you’d like to dress up, we’re going for “shabby chic,” New Orleans style.

A portion of our proceeds will go to Anna’s Place, a community center that works with children and families in Tremé/7th Ward of New Orleans.

Our entertainment will be a “one night only” event, with the group Roux Noir, made up of Justin Dillard on keyboards, Junius Paul on bass, Clif Wallace on drums, Larry Brown Jr. on guitar, and Maurice Cade on trombone.

The House opens at 6 pm. Two sets: 7:00 pm and 8:30 pm. Tickets are $35 general admission, $15 with University Chicago ID or under 21, if purchased in advance. Add $5 at the door. For more information email office@brenthouse.org or call 773-947-8744.
