The original Hillcrest Fat Tuesday will be returning to the neighborhood this year, and will take place at its old stomping ground right in front of Urban Mo’s, on Tuesday, February 28.

Highlights include a night time dance party, performances by Urban MO's Dreamgirls Revue, a costume competition, two bars, DIY Mardi Gras mask booth, exclusive VIP area with private bar and your favorite Rich's Nightclub DJs.

There will also be a costume contest at 10 pm, where the most festively festooned Mardi Gras participant will be crowned “Queen of Mardi Gras.”

General Admission tickets are now on presale for $10. VIP Tickets presale for $30, and include access to an exclusive VIP area, private bar and restrooms, lounge seating, tons of beads, and street tacos and beer provided by Urban Mo's until they run out. In addition, for the first time ever there will be a complimentary hosted happy hour from 6 to 7 pm, for the first 300 guests through the door.

Eric Krop in 'Greater Things' at Martinis Above Fourth

Tonight (Thursday) Martinis Above Fourth will be headlining LA resident Eric Krop, who will be making his first solo appearance at MA4 with his show “Greater Things:”

“"Greater Things," the title of Eric’s debut pop single, is just a taste of what he brings. Join Eric as he takes you through a night of joy and heartbreak with a sense of humor through original music and covers of Adele, Sia, Michael Jackson, Etta James and more.

You'll be blown away by his unprecedented powerhouse vocals.

Eric has made a name for himself as one of the most preeminent young vocalists on the pop and musical theater scene, performing in Godspell on Broadway, headlining several cabaret performances at top NYC and L.A venues such as 54 Below and Rockwell, and appearing in Equity theater productions nationwide.”
