Mardi Gras Pot Luck & Parade!

Break out your costumes, boas, masks, second line umbrellas and kazoos!    P.L.A.I.N. will be hosting a potluck Mardi Gras Brunch on Saturday March 7th at the Beach House from 10 am til noon and a post-brunch parade, leaving from the beach house at noon sharp!  No vehicles allowed, but you can decorate wagons, bikes, or strollers or just yourself.  Brunch will be a potluck – with beverages provided by P.L.A.I.N.  Menu will feature beignets, king cake, cafe au lait and more.  
Please RSVP for the brunch by March 1st to Lynn Callery at lynnac2009@yahoo.com or (404)539-7219 regarding what dish and how many people you are bringing.  Advance responses are not required, but are very important so that we can make sure we have adequate food and beverages for the crowd.  Folks can participate in the parade without attending the brunch or attend the brunch without parade participation.  Please also contact me if you are interested in helping with the event.
