Mardi Gras (In Ithaca) Means Maxie's

Today is Mardi Gras, and of course we wish tonight we'd be at the Maple Leaf Bar on Oak Street in New Orleans, where we used to be.

In Ithaca, we will be at Maxie's instead.

All the time, Maxie's has a New Orleans feel, and clear inspiration. We don't know if they are doing anything special tonight. We guess yes. But it doesn't matter, we'll be there.

Maxie's reminds us a little of the Maple Leaf, just cleaner. Pressed tin ceiling. Better-looking staff.

We'll have a Turbo-Dog draft so some of our tab will go back to the Big Easy.

have fun -

Yeah yeah for Mardi Gras! It may be colder and snowier than down south, but we make it happen. The spirit is still here. I'm sure Maxie's will be hoppin'
