New Orleans Comes To Melbourne at Joe's Bar and Dining Hall
In February, Joe’s Bar and Dining Hall is bringing American spirit to St Kilda (breaking news: now closed) with two events (including this Sunday Mardi Gras celebration) that will make your heart sing and leave your taste buds begging for their next hit of Joe’s American fare.
New Orleans Mardi Gras: Sunday 16 February
To mark the New Orleans Mardi Gras -‐the French term for ''Fat Tuesday” and the biggest day of the New Orleans calendar-‐ Joe’s is hosting its own party outdoors and in style.
There’ll be no gaudy parade floats or breast-‐flashing tourists, instead Joe’s is bringing you jazz funk and sweet authentic grub. Mardi Gras is all about overindulging; expect jambalaya, Cajun canty corn and po’boys a plenty.
They say New Orleans is the city that loves to party, but then so is Melbourne right?
President’s Day: Tuesday 18 February
Each February Americans remember their nation's greatest presidents with a special day of celebration. President’s Day is coming to Joe’s with a special menu honouring the accomplishments and reputation of America’s most renowned past leaders.
