Gulf Stream Bar & Grille will be celebrating Fat Tuesday in true New Orleans style on Tuesday, March 5th, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

At the waterfront restaurant in Portsmouth, customers will be able to enjoy themed drink and food specials, party favors, and live music from George Zecher on the steel drums! 

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday.

Other Upcoming Events

Other events coming soon to Gulf Stream include a Paint Night on March 16th at 4 pm, a Writing Party on March 23rd, and a Plant Night at 4 pm on March 30th.
