Tonight Vertical Wine Bistro in Pasadena hosts an evening of zombies, fleshy bites and creepy cocktails to celebrate the Season 1 DVD release of AMC’s The Walking Dead. (Vertical owner Gale Anne Hurd is executive producer of the show.) Members of the cast and crew will be on hand and guests have the chance to win a copy of the Season 1 DVD. For $35, guests get two zombie-inspired cocktails and munchies throughout the night. 7:30-9:30 pm. 


The New Orleans-themed bar Five0Four Hollywood celebrates all things Cajun and Creole tonight for Mardi Gras. Taste Hurricanes, Grenades, Cyclones and other Bourbon Street beverages. The event includes carnival games, a brass band, a photo booth and drunk specials like $2 Jello shots, alcoholic snow cones provided by Three Olives Vodka, $20 half gallons of Abita beer served in souvenir jugs.
