Mobile Mardi Gras Trail “Happy Hour Tours”

Get a head start on the SEPTEMBER ARTWALK! Meet your guide a few minutes before 5:30 p.m., at "Fathoms," overlooking the corner of Water and Royal Streets, located in the Marriott Riverview hotel. Then walk in the same footsteps as the first mystic revelers, from Water Street, down Royal to the corner of St. Francis St. Stop for awhile at the Royal Street Tavern, where you can imagine attending a turn-of-the-century Mardi Gras ball in the historic Battle House Hotel. Then take your moonpies and Mardi Gras beads to Eugene's Monkey Bar on Bienville Square, along the routes taken by Mobile's first royal Mardi Gras courts as they toasted their queens and accepted the keys to take over the city for the last day of Carnival.

The tour ends at approximately 7:30 p.m., adjacent to the Marriott Riverview, in front of Mardi Gras Park. 

Two cocktails (and a few of the necessary accoutrements of proper mysticism) are included! 

$25 / person

Theatre 98: THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book.​  For more information, click here.
