In honor of Fat Tuesday, the Pour House hosts not one but two special Mardi Gras events. On Monday head to PoHo’s deck for Monday Gras, featuring food from Andy McLeod, RJ Dye, and Alex Lira, along with Lo-Fi Brewery beer and cocktails by Cathead. Listen to NoLA music from Charlton Singleton, Chris Bluemell, and Jonathan Lovett, along with records spun by OHM Radio’s DJ Pam Huseby. On Tuesday head to Pour House’s big ol’ funk party. Mike Quinn of the Superfunk (a local all-star funk band) plays with the Meters, along with a bunch of other special guests like Sol Driven Train, Dead 27s, Dangermuffin, The Movement, Weigh Station, and others to be announced.
Celebrate Fat Tuesday at The Faculty Lounge with pop up bar No Hard Feelings, guest bartenders Freddy Schwenk and Megan Deschaine, and a special New Orleans-themed cocktail menu all evening. A portion of proceeds (and tips) will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
Head to Lowcountry Harley for the Blessing of the Bikes with breakfast at 9:30 a.m. followed by a 10 a.m. general blessing, with live music, door prizes, and vendors.
Ever begun to shake in a yoga posture? Tighten your jaw? Throw darts at the teacher from the backs of your eyes? These are unhealthy nervous system responses to yoga. Prana Flow, created by Shiva Rea, is a system of yoga that awakens rhythmic body movements connecting us to our breath wave. This liberates us from a fight/flight response and awakens strength, fluidity and inner meditation. We feel the underlying steadiness in the storms of life both on and off the mat.
