The Historic Hotel Leger invites you to help us acknowledge the support of our Historical Preservation Society. We will also be inviting new members to join us in our efforts to preserve the historical significance of this Gold Rush treasure, and return it to the level of importance it once commanded throughout the Mother Lode.
On Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 5pm-8pm we will host a Mardi Gras party and dinner in the renovated "Courthouse Jail" that is now a beautiful wine cellar banquet room. The evening will feature a fabulous Cajun-Creole meal prepared by our own Chef Chuck Swisher, accompanied by wine pairings hosted by our own local Renegade Winery. The menu includes:
APPETIZERS - Oysters Rockefeller, Boiled Crawfish w/Remoulade Sauce, Cajun Fried Chicken
SALAD - "Beans and Greens of New Orleans" - a tasty blend of black-eyed peas, kidney beans, corn, garlic, arugula and kale, mixed with a savory mustard herb dressing
ENTREES - Jambalaya and Shrimp Etouffee served over Rice
DESSERTS - Bananas Foster and Blueberry-Pecan Bread Pudding w/Orange Vanilla Bourbon Sauce
The Whitewater Saloon will be open and serving a variety of New Orleans classics such as Hurricanes, Ramos Gin Fizz, Vieux Carre, and others!
There will also be live music by Annie Marie & FiddleAround - come and dance to their infectious beat of Cajun, Zydeco, New Orleans Blues and Swamp Boogie, They will also lead a Mardi Gras parade around the streets of Moke Hill to end the evening.
