Mardi Gras Ball set for Club Else

Date Posted: 2008-02-07

It’s Mardi Gras season, and Club Else is jumping to the forefront with its New Orleans Mardi Gras Ball 2008 on February 16th.

For the uninitiated, Mardi Gras, French for ‘Fat Tuesday’, is the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is the final day of Carnival, which began12 days after Christmas, January 6 and ends on Mardi Gras, which always falls the day before Ash Wednesday. Carnival is an important celebration in much of Europe, as well as Latin America and the Caribbean.

Traditionally, Mardi Gras is a time for crowning a King, Queen, Princess and Prince of the Ball, capping the celebrations. At Club Else, the four will be selected by patrons during the Mardi Gras Ball presented by Big Eazy Entertainment and French Entertainment. The ball won’t be outrageous and wild like the one typically occuring on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but Big Jay of Eazy Entertainment promises “this event is aimed more at the elegant, historic side of Mardi Gras, so put on your best dress, ladies, and guys get your jazziest suit ready for a night of New Orleans tradition like you’ve never seen on Okinawa before.”

Special live performances featuring Homemadesoul and Q.T. are on tap at Club Else during the Mardi Gras Bal, plus deejays Hi 5ive, Rudy and Rukus and Franchize will be spinning the hip-hop, rhythm, reggae and a little touch of New Orleans flavor.

Cajun New Orleans foods, including Cajun rice, gumbo with rice and stuffed bell peppers, will be offered free. All drinks except some special cocktails and beer are included in the entry price.

Admission to Club Else’s Mardi Gras Ball 2008 is $25 per couple, a price that includes a red rose for the lady and a free bottle of champagne. Admission for men is $15 before midnight, at the door, and $20 after midnight. Ladies enter free before midnight, and pay $10 after midnight. Reservation information is available at (090) 5089-7208.
