A Night of Mystery & Mayhem
It was a fun few evenings with our Mystery at the Masquerade event. This part Mardi Gras, part Carnival event featured an amazing six course gourmet dinner, unique cocktails, and some fun mystery escape rooms.
Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", reflecting the practice of the last night of eating rich, fatty foods before the ritual sacrifices and fasting of the Lenten season.
If your not familiar with Carnival, this celebration was started by Italian Catholics in Europe, and later was spread widely by the French when they settled in to Trinidad, Haiti and other Caribbean Islands. These pre-Lenten events are a series of celebrations involving music, dancing and eating. They typically occur the week prior to the start of Lent. The use of the “Masquerade” ball or party was usually the "the culmination event of the week-long Carnival” Elaborate costumes and masks allowed people to set aside their everyday individuality and experience a heightened sense of social unity. Participants often indulge in excessive consumption of alcohol, meat, and other foods that will be forgone during upcoming Lent. This festival is known for being a time of great indulgence before Lent.
