Mardi Gras Hits Austin

By Megan Giller  |  February 28, 2014

Austin knows how to party, and this weekend and early next week are no exception. Check out the Mardi Gras specials at the places below, which are going on today through Tuesday.

Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden

Beignets, shrimp sausage po' boys and rotating boudin selections are available through Tuesday, but the holiday culminates with a big band party on Mardi Gras from 8 to 11 PM.


Get yourself a mini king cake through Tuesday that serves three people for just $15. One of them will have a gold baby that’s worth a $50 gift card to the restaurant. Also check out the venison-and-gator gumbo and fluffy beignets.

Easy Tiger

Try the phenomenal king cakes, which are available for preorder through March 4. Instead of a plastic baby, there's a plastic tiger inside! Email or call 512-614-4972.


The craft cocktail bar is featuring $5 absinthe drinks all night for Verts Mardi Gras.

Jack Allen’s Kitchen

On Fat Tuesday the South Austin location will celebrate with etouffees, boudin and king cakes as well as $5 Pepe Z tequila drinks, plus live music.
