2/18 Mardis Gras Special & Friday Night Lodging Special

February 16th, 2010 by avadmin


What’s more Irish than Mardis Gras? Almost everything, but we’re taking the opportunity to give our treasured guests a pair of great specials! On Thursday February 18th we’ll be offering $4 Red Baron Punch in our 20 ounce Hurricane glasses, which were resurrected from 1995 when Water Street Inn was called the Lumber Barons. Jeremy will be pub-tending that evening and mixing up a delicious blend of liquors and fresh juices in our signature Red Baron Hurricane glasses. A blast from the past: keep the glass and bring it back during our 15 year anniversary starting November 2010.

Forget about Saturday, this week it’s all about the Friday Night Special: $129 will get you the best available whirlpool suite at the Water Street Inn which includes a free drink at Charlie’s, complementary breakfast and $20 to use towards dinner in the restaurant. Don’t forget to ask for this special!
