Mardi Gras is celebrated this week with parties across the globe, including Jet at which DJ XRay and guests are bringing Dancehall, HipHop and Top 50 tunes from 10pm. Weekender will probably be at home eating pancakes at this point, but go for it anyway.
We all know about Mardi Gras. Calico Jack’s bucks the trend and actually has it on Tuesday (the clue is in the name). That’s from 10pm onward. The next day, there’s a free Royal Palms event, Spindustry at Surfside and as ever Kaibo’s festivities also take place on Wednesday, of course, which by a quirk of fate this week actually precedes Thursday. This temporal tension truly is tremendous isn’t it?
And as it happens, Thursday, 14 February, is also St. Valentine’s Day. Jet’s got a Red Red Wine event, involving the Rumba Latin party from 10pm and hosted by Le Bambino. Intriguingly, though, there’s a St. Valentine’s Murder Mystery Dinner, which we are told will “unfold over a delicious three course meal”. There’s prizes for best costumes and best performances plus for the guest that solves the crime. Hooray!
