Mardi Gras Madness!

The Avenue Pub is opening its Balcony for beer geeks who want a great place to watch the parades while drinking great beer and hanging out with others who want to drink great beer while watching the parades!

For the second year, The Avenue Pub has taken the first week of Mardi Gras to line up some great beer events. This is the weekend that the balcony is open to the public. They, of course, want their best beer customers up there and the best way to get them to show up and watch the parades with us is to line up some great beers. Drinking the beers will get you access to the balcony for the parades (first come first serve of course). There will be lots of industry people in town for these events and they sound awesome!
