With plenty of spots in throughout town offering a taste of New Orleans, Angelenos were not without options to celebrate Mardi Gras. Sassafras Saloon in Hollywood was no exception.

Aside from their exceptional cocktail offerings, Sassafras went the extra mile and had a tap-takeover by Louisiana's Abita Brewing Company, a crawfish boil (!), live music from the Mudbug Brass Band, and topped it all off with burlesque dancers.

Did anyone save me a plate of crawfish?
