It's Mardi Gras - Celebrate at The Nodding Donkey Greenville!

You don’t have to be in New Orleans to get in on the Mardi Gras celebrations! Mardi Gras is just one big winter party that is celebrated by many cultures and people around the world. And at The Nodding Donkey, we love any excuse for a good time. So let’s do Mardi Gras in Dallas at The Nodding Donkey!


If you like good drinks, good food, and an even better atmosphere, then join us at The Nodding Donkey for our Mardi Gras events:


Saturday, Feb. 6 – Mardi Gras Party


It’s the last weekend of Mardi Gras, and we want to see you here at The Donkey Greenville to join in on the fun. We’ll be hosting a Dallas crawfish boil from 2-8pm, followed by a few Mardi Gras contests. Show us your best Mardi Gras beads and Mardi Gras mask for the chance to win up to $250 in cash and prizes! After the contest, dance the night away to a DJ and some amazing Dallas drink specials, including $3 Hurricanes. It’s going to be the best party on Greenville Ave, and we can’t wait to see you.


Tuesday, Feb. 9 – Fat Tuesday Celebration


Fat Tuesday is the last day to party – so you better live it up big! Get off work a little early and head over to The Nodding Donkey. Starting at 4pm, we’ll be hosting another crawfish boil with all the fixins. Succulent gulf crawfish boiled to perfection, red potatoes, baby corn, and delicious craft beer will all be available as our daily special. But hurry – we’ll begin serving at 4pm – and when we run out, we run out. Can’t make it for the crawfish boil? Join us after for live music from some of Dallas’ best local talent.
