Join us for an in depth guided tour of Blaine Kern’s Mardi Gras World followed by a classic New Orleans lunch at Urban South Brewery! At Mardi Gras World you’ll get to see in depth how the massive handcrafted floats that make up a Mardi Gras parade are conceptualized, sculpted, and painted to perfection. We’ve all seen them on TV and rolling down the street, you get to see where they are born! Naturally we’ll tour the facility with a cold craft beer or seltzer in hand. From there we’ll head straight to Urban South for gumbo, boiled shrimp, and muffaletta sandwiches, along with plenty of craft beer and house made seltzer. Guides will also be on hand to give small group tours of the brewing operation from barley to canning line.
