The Mardi Gras Take Over on Saturday, January 28, 2012, is a great way to be a part of the creative movement—and to dance your booty off to Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraiser.
The Hellraisers are direct from New Orleans, in their third year of fueling this dance party with flaming accordion and a mean washboard. Guests should dress festively and warm up their dancing muscles for a night of conga lines, boogeying, stompin’ and generally putting on the ritz. The event also includes a silent auction, a cash bar, a parade of beady delights and food by Berry Island Café—jambalaya and white chocolate bread pudding, the signature New Orleans dessert. Kings and Queens will be chosen!
The event is at the Shed on Paris Avenue in Old Village Port Royal, and tickets close Jan. 23, 2012.
ARTworks, the arts council of Beaufort, Port Royal and the Sea Islands, works year-round in order to heighten quality of life and cultural assets with after school classes, community theater, American roots music, a clean well-lit gallery to peruse and ponder paintings (located 2127 Boundary Street, Beaufort 29902).
Tickets to Mardis Gras at the Shed are $75: 843-379-2787, http://www.artworksinbeaufort.org.
