Eats, drinks, beads: Sounds like Mardi Gras merrymaking in the Gaslamp Quarter

Let the good times roll with a self-guided stroll through San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. This early Mardi Gras celebration is a bites and booze tasting tour for ages 21 and up. Check in at The Field Irish Pub, and then samba your way to 20 participating bars and restaurants, collecting beads at each stop. Enjoy 20 different Mardi Gras-inspired nibbles and 20 Carnival-themed cocktails (see who’s serving what on the website). Beads collected from 10 hotspots and redeemed at check-in will gain Mardi-partiers access to the secret location of an exclusive after-party. Laissez les bon temps rouler!

The Big Easy Bites & Booze Tour: 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, at more than 20 participating venues in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. $25 advance; $30 day of.
