two boots mardi gras ball

Last night, S and I celebrated Fat Tuesday in style at Two Boots Pizza's annual Mardi Gras Ball.

The event (which benefits the Lower East Side Girls Club) went down at Le Poisson Rouge in the Village and featured some pretty rad acts.

Ladies on stilts dressed in glittering ensembles danced with umbrellas over a lively masked crowd that celebrated to the sounds of Lady Rizo, the Raya Brass Band, the Middle Church Gospel Choir and many more.

Here are a few snaps from the evening. It was a truly awesome way to get a taste of N'awlins in NYC all while raising money for a great cause.

Check out Time Out New York's slideshow of the event here.

P.S. Le Poisson Rouge hosted Yoko Ono's birthday party last weekend and an installation of her wish trees was still in place in the club's main room. You can see a bit of them in the bottom pic.
