Jazz Night in the Fourth Estate to celebrate Mardi Gras Tuesday, March 4

February 27, 2014 | By Susan Dilbert |

On Tuesday, March 4 the Fourth Estate will host Jazz Night in a special Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras celebration.

The restaurant, in conjunction with Georgetown’ home for jazz, Blues Alley, hosts musicians from the Blues Alley Youth Orchestra at the beginning of each month, but Fat Tuesday calls for special recognition.

Jazz Night is usually the first Wednesday of every month, but the musicians and restaurant wanted to pass on the opportunity to hear a little jazz, eat food reminiscent of New Orleans and blow out the jams on the traditional last night of Mardi Gras.

A trio will play from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. during dinner as background music. There is no cover charge. This month, the Fourth Estate will be featuring Jambalaya, Gumbo and Red Beans & Rice with every entrée. Come for the food; come for the music; enjoy both. Reservations suggested, 202-662-7638; space is limited.
