Recently we celebrated the new release of the 2011 Big Easy at our 4th annual Mardi Gras party. Wine club members were invited to come enjoy a night of music, food, and Big Easy wine.
Before the night got started Fess Parker employees took some time to get together for a picture.
To start the evening off on the right foot and to get everyone in the mood for some fun we had some live jazz from the Jerry Coelho duet.
As the night wore on Cajun themed appetizers started appearing from the kitchen such as: Black-eyed pea salsa, southern style deviled eggs topped with bacon and Andouille sausage, sauteed shrimp with salted peanuts and a Sriracha-honey glaze, Cajun mac & cheese with jalapeno and Andouille sausage, and jambalaya.
For dessert we served a chicory root coffee chocolate cake with a Southern Comfort caramel drizzle along with a traditional King Cake.
One lucky member found the baby in the King Cake and won a magnum of 2011 Big Easy.
Tim and Ashley were in attendance for the night's festivities, having a glass of wine and visiting with guests and friends.
We were thrilled with the great turnout this year and had a lot of fun. Good music, food, great people, and plenty of Big Easy to go around made for a special night.
Thank you to all who came and celebrated Mardi Gras with us this year, and a special thank you to Sarah Brooks Photography for the great pictures. Until next time, Cheers!
