Mardi Gras is coming around the corner on Tuesday, February 17th and although many of us would love the opportunity to celebrate in New Orleans, aka the Fat Tuesday capital of the world, it just may not be in the cards this year. That’s okay though! Rehoboth Beach will embody the spirit (and appetite) of the holiday this upcoming Sunday, February 15, 2015 with the Gumbo Crawl!
If you plan to be in the area this weekend, this is undoubtedly a must-attend event! Taking place on Rehoboth Beach Main Street from 2pm-5pm, all you need to do is purchase a $5 voting ballot and then walk over to each of the 12 participating restaurants to sample each unique gumbo recipe. If you ask us, $5 is an insanely reasonable price for all that goes along with this tasty event! Plus, there will be tons of opportunities to take advantage of great food and drink specials along the way and, of course, to grab yourself a few Mardi Gras beads! Just don’t forget to vote for your favorite by the time the Crawl comes to an end.
If you’re interested in finding out which restaurant came out on top, just stop on out to The Purple Parrot on Rehoboth Avenue on Fat Tuesday. The winner will be announced at 8pm sharp!
