Restaurant grand opening benefits Batson Hospital

One of Jackson's newest restaurants will host a pre-grand opening weekend of activities, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children. Mardi Gras will be open Feb. 3-5 as a prelude to its grand opening on Feb. 8.

Each night during the pre-grand opening weekend there will be seatings at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., with a portion of the $25 per person cost benefiting the Batson Hospital. The entire $5 cover for the Vieux Carre Piano Jazz Bar will also benefit the children's hospital. The piano jazz bar will host live entertainment each night.

For more information or to make reservations, call Joel Brown at (601) 982-4850.

The restaurant is in the old Fowler Buick Building on the corner of Silas Brown and South State Street, directly across the street from Stuart C. Irby and Co. In addition to the piano bar and the restaurant, the 18,000-square-foot building will eventually have a dance club and a dance studio.
