HOUSTON (Feb. 1, 2018) – Willie’s Grill & Icehouse – known for serving “Great Food and More Fun” to Texans – is celebrating Mardi Gras Cajun-style, with a lively five-day party.

From Thursday, Feb. 8 to Sunday, Feb. 11, and of course, on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 13, Willie’s will have a 5,000-square-foot tent set up outside, complete with a full-size bar, stage and dance floor for Mardi Gras revelers of all ages.

In addition to its full menu of down-home Texas fare, Willie’s will be serving up Louisiana’s best crawfish by the pound for just $6.99/lb.

The Houston hot spot will also feature face painting, a balloon artist, a sandbox and other activities for the kids, featured cocktails for the adults and live music for the whole family. Several popular local bands have been scheduled for each night of the week-long party:

Thursday, Feb. 8 – Hamilton Loomis @ 6 p.m.

Friday, Feb. 9 – Louis Adams Diaz Band @ 6 p.m.

Saturday, Feb. 10 – Paul Ramirez Band @ 6 p.m.

Sunday, Feb. 11 – Luther and The Healers @ 4 p.m.

Tuesday, Feb. 13 – Lil Porter @ 5 p.m.

Of course, you can’t celebrate Mardi Gras without Frozen Yards, so in addition to its popular margaritas, Willie’s will have three frozen cocktails available during the party: the Big Willie, Voodoo Daddy and Frozen Jack & Coke. Each of these specialty drinks are just $12 in the 24 oz. souvenir yard glass. If you’re more of a beer drinker, take advantage of the Mardi Gras beer bucket special – buy five ice cold bottled beers and get the sixth free. Talk about a good time!

“Mardi Gras is our favorite time of the year, which is why we’re celebrating for five days,” said Doug Stewart, Vice President of Operations for Willie’s Houston and College Station. “We will be boiling up a ton of our famous crawfish, we’ll have plenty of fun activities for the entire family and we have great bands lined up. So come join us in celebrating and let the good times roll.”
