MARDI GRAS REVIEW

For those of us who were unable to celebrate on Bourbon Street in New Orleans and in keeping with our annual tradition, Schooner celebrated it’s very own annual Mardi Gras festival on March 4th. As usual, Chef Mike Morton and his crew outdid themselves with a delectable New Orleans style buffet feast. Authentic breads and King cakes were flown up from New Orleans! Gus Turbide entertained all with an entertaining keyboard performance while residents and staff alike thoroughly enjoyed themselves! We would like to thank all who attended and hope everyone had a fabulous time!
