Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball

When: Fri., Feb. 8 2013

Two cultural titans collided last weekend in New Orleans: Mardi Gras and the Super Bowl. Well, actually just the Super Bowl happened. Mayor Mitch Landrieu pushed Carnival back a week to accommodate the big game. Landrieu, according to the New York Daily News, didn't want to overburden the local police with two extravaganzas at once. Fair enough, but there won't be any sporting event to interfere with tonight's Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball and closing reception, kicking off at 5 at Cottonwood Center for the Arts (427 E. Colorado Ave., cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com). For a $5 donation, you get to party in your best mask with food, drink and entertainment from steampunk dance group Vagabond Misfits and jazz/funk outfit Thelonious Funk. — Edie Adelstein
