The Super Bowl may be over, but one time-honored New Orleans tradition is just getting warmed up.

On Saturday, February 9, Art Soiree productions and Alliance Francaise are throwing a Mardi Gras Masquerade at the Washington Club (15 Dupont Circle NW).

The event — which includes an open wine and beer bar, French pastries and a five-piece brass band — is $60 and begins at 9 pm. Attire is black-tie optional and masks are highly encouraged.

For more information on the masquerade, visit the Art Soiree website.
