The fun and frolic is building as we approach Mardi Gras 2020. Arlington’s Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar and Eatery and Dock 5 at Union Market are both showing their party scene for a grand celebration. Chef and restaurateur David Guas has a night of traditional Creaole & Cajun food and live music planned, starting at 6 p.m. Bayou Bakery will offer $5 dishes, including dishes like Camellia Red Beans & Rice, Muffalettas, Jambalaya, Crawfish Monica, and Beignets.

In addition, take advantage of $2 cake slices and $5 N’awlins Cocktails. The fun wraps up at 10 p.m. Some guests will want the Carnival to go, so there’s plenty on the catering menu, including Crawfish Étouffée, Crabmeat Maison, and assorted party platters.
