Celebrate Mardi Gras at Offshore Ale Co. and The Ritz on Tuesday, Feb. 17. Offshore will offer a French Quarter–inspired menu and live music from 5 pm to 9 pm. The New Orleans–themed event wouldn’t be complete without beads tossed from the balcony. For additional information, call Offshore at 508-693-2626. The Ritz in Oak Bluffs will be hosting their own French fete that night with a masquerade ball, including music from Mike Benjamin and the Mardi Gras Mumbo Band, a $100 costume contest, Hurricane drink specials, and their signature gumbo.
